All memory makers are getting ready to throw their DDR3 chips on the market. We've already seen a couple of announcements and today I spotted Micron's DDR3 chips also passed Intel's validation test.

These 1Gb DDR3 chips from Micron are made on a 78nm process and have clockspeeds of 800MHz to 1066MHz.

Evaluation samples of Micron’s 1Gb DDR3 components are available to select customers with production expected to begin early next year. Micron’s 1Gb DDR3 components will be available in various output configurations (x4, x8 and x16), and will be fully compliant to the most recent JEDEC DDR3 specifications (JEDEC is the leading developer of standards for the semiconductor industry). These components will support module densities from 512 megabytes (MB) through 4 gigabytes (GB) and a variety of module types including UDIMMs, SODIMMs, and RDIMMs.

A 2Gb DDR3 device is also expected to be available from Micron early next year, helping to enable even higher density applications.
