Dynamic random-access memory DRAM. However, latency is greatly increased as a trade-off. This packaging change was necessary to maintain signal integrity jesec higher bus speeds. Such chips draw significantly more power than slower-clocked chips, but usually offered little or no improvement in real-world performance. These cards actually use standard DDR2 chips designed for use as main system memory although operating with higher latencies to achieve higher clockrates.

DDR2 SDRAM – Wikipedia

At least one manufacturer has reported this reflects successful testing at a higher-than-standard data rate [4] whilst others simply round up for the name. It had severe overheating issues due to the nominal DDR voltages.

However, further confusion has been added to the mix with stadard appearance of budget and mid-range graphics cards which claim to use “GDDR2”.


This page was last edited on 2 Augustat From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Thus, DDR2 memory must be operated at twice the data rate to achieve the same latency. DDR2 was introduced in the second quarter of at two initial clock rates: Views Read Edit View history.


Both performed worse than the original DDR specification due to higher latency, which made total access times longer. Retrieved from ” https: In other projects Wikimedia Commons. In addition to double pumping the data bus as in DDR SDRAM transferring data on the rising and falling edges of the bus clock signalDDR2 allows higher bus speed and requires lower power by running the internal clock at half the speed of the data bus.

This queue received or transmitted its data over the data bus in two data bus clock cycles each clock cycle transferred two bits of data. DDR2 started to become competitive against the older DDR standard by the end ofas modules with lower latencies became available.


Alternatively, DDR2 memory operating at twice the external data bus clock rate as DDR may provide twice the bandwidth with the same latency. Bandwidth is calculated by taking transfers per second and multiplying by eight. This is because DDR2 memory modules transfer data on a bus that is 64 data bits wide, and since a byte comprises 8 bits, this equates to 8 bytes of data per transfer.


Power savings are achieved primarily due to an improved manufacturing process through die shrinkage, resulting in a drop in operating voltage 1. The lower memory clock frequency may also enable power reductions in applications that do not require the highest available data rates.

DDR2’s bus frequency is boosted by electrical interface improvements, on-die terminationprefetch buffers and off-chip drivers. The two factors combine to produce a total of four data transfers per internal clock cycle. DIMMs are identified by their peak transfer capacity often called bandwidth.

Archived from the original on These chips cannot achieve the clock rates of GDDR3 but are inexpensive and fast enough to be used as memory on mid-range cards. During an access, four bits were read or written to or from a four-bit-deep prefetch queue. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Dddr2.

These chips are mostly standard DDR chips that have been tested and rated to be capable of operation at higher clock rates by the manufacturer.
