The new modules use a 50 nanometer manufacturing process and operate at a 1.35 volt power level. The modules use the higher density and more efficient 2Gb process Samsung first announced last September. While prices for DDR3 remain high, the modules are widely expected to take over the market in the coming years as prices fall and buyers opt for its higher data transfer rates and power savings.
