Samsung has extended its Green Memory initiative with modules designed for PC and mobile application use.
The initiative already offers eco-friendly DRAM and solid state drives, but the company has now added ultra-low-power LPDDR2 and ultra-fast GDDR5 memory pitched firmly in the direction of modern computing hardware.
The 40nm 2GB GDDR5 includes support for 1.35V VDD for low power, and is aimed at high performance graphics cards, games consoles and computing.
The LPDDR2, meanwhile, is designed for tablets, smartphones and consumer electronic devices.
"Intent on making information about our power-saving efforts more accessible to key manufacturing customers and consumers, we have created an extensive Green Memory hub web site," said Dong-Soo Jun, executive vice president for memory sales and marketing at Samsung Electronics.
"We believe that, given adequate knowledge about the energy saving advantages of Green Memory solutions, and their inherent economic benefits, a growing number of end users will choose to buy green IT products that use Samsung's green memory."
The firm also announced high-performance 8GB and 16GB moviNAND embedded memory chips for use in mobile handsets
