Hello all, I have kind of a noob question....what is the difference between GDDR 3 and just DDR 3? Thanks in advance.
The term "GDDR" is used for the memory chips employed on fast graphic cards. Unlike the RAM modules used on the mainboards (either DDR, DDR-2 or DDR-3 the next year) it does not use a bus but a dedicated point 2 point connection to achieve faster operating frequencies.
The term DDR3 has a more general meaning encompassing all the third genration DDR technologies.
GDDR3 runs at a lower voltage as well....

This is in regrading?
Buying of VGA, where 1 brand advertises DDR3 mem, and other advertises gDDR3 mem? then believe me both are same.
I know a friend, who didnt buy an ASUS x800pro, coz it mentioned ddr3, while powercolor mentioned gddr3 on the box.
