Wiki User

ddr3 can achive much higher clock rates than ddr2. the highest possible clock speed of ddr2 is 1333MHz while there are already 1800MHz ddr3 sticks being produced. also ddr3 can support twice as much capacity per stick than ddr2. Answer DDR3 in several significant ways: * Higher bandwidth due to increased clock rate * Reduced power consumption due to 90mm fabrication technology * Pre-fetch buffer is doubled to 8 bits to further increase performance
