DDR2 memory has been known for rather long already — from the first models of DDR2-400 and DDR2-533 that appeared approximately two years ago and possessed quite high latencies (both dynamic, which have to do with properties of memory chips, and system ones, which have to do with initially slow timings — 3-3-3 and 4-4-4 correspondingly) and up to its modern modifications offering high performance (DDR2-667, DDR2-800, and unofficial DDR2-1000/1066) as well as relatively low latencies (up to 4-4-4 for DDR2-800).
