et, even though DDR2 has clearly reached its limit, the cost of production combined with a wide-scale recession will further harm acceptance of the new format. But are you really missing anything? I could give you a simple 'yes', but that's what I've already been saying for many months now. Instead, I invite you learn about what you're losing...

DDR3 SDRAM Component Features:

*
Support of system level flight time compensation
*
On-DIMM mirror friendly DRAM pin out
*
Introduction of CAS Write Latency per speed bin
*
Asynchronous reset function is now available
*
On-die I/O calibration engine
*
Automatic data bus line read and write calibration

DDR3 Module Improvements:

*
Higher bandwidth performance increase, up to 1600 MHz per spec
*
Fly-by command/address/control bus with on-DIMM termination
*
High precision calibration resistors construction
*
Performance increase at low power
*
Enhanced low power features conserve energy
*
Improved thermal design now operates cooler

But can It max crysis?
