Intel plans 2GHz memory with XMP technology

Even though a number of memory makers have already released memory modules capable of operating at 1.80GHz, there are no memory modules to break the 2.0GHz barrier nowadays. But this may change soon, as Intel is not only working with JEDEC on 1866MHz and 2133MHz DDR3 standards, but also plans to enable such speed-bins via […]

Even though a number of memory makers have already released memory modules capable of operating at 1.80GHz, there are no memory modules to break the 2.0GHz barrier nowadays. But this may change soon, as Intel is not only working with JEDEC on 1866MHz and 2133MHz DDR3 standards, but also plans to enable such speed-bins via its extreme memory profile (XMP) technology.

“We are working on adding a few more speed bins to JEDEC’s standard DDR3’s definition – specifically like 1866MHz and 2133MHz – even though these speed bins will first be covered by the XMP spec,
