Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) has qualified Micron Technology's 1Gbit DDR2 memory components for use in its new Phenom quad-core processors that target data-intensive, high-end computing applications.

Micron's DDR2-1066 memory components offer 33 percent clock speed improvement over DDR2-800 components. The DDR2-1066 components are produced on Micron's 78nm 6F? process and operate at 1.8V Jedec standard. In addition, the 1Gbit component density allows for modules in densities ranging from 512Mbyte to 2Gbit.

"Users can experience a significant increase in computing performance by combining the AMD Phenom processors with Micron's DDR2-1066 memory technology," said Brian Shirley, VP of Micron's memory group.

"Micron's leading edge memory technology, combined with our AMD Phenom quad-core processors, can provide a heightened interactive user experience by enabling unprecedented system performance," said Bob Brewer, corporate VP of marketing and strategy. "The graphic intensive features and multitasking functionality that users demand are requiring more and more memory to perform at optimal levels and AMD's ongoing technology partnership with Micron is a crucial step toward empowering breakthrough computing experiences for our shared customers."
