The Boise chipmaker jumped on the energy efficiency bandwagon today with new memory products it says could reduce data center power needs by 24 percent.
Server builders are the target customer for the low-voltage DDR2 DRAM in reduced chip count memory modules launched today. It’s the first prouct in Micron’s new “Aspen” line of more energy efficient products; eventually they’ll also be aimed at laptops as well.
The products released today operate at 1.5 volts, instead of the 1.8 volts that’s standard in servers today. EE Times has some perspective.
