Yes, GDDR3 (Graphics Double Data Rate, version 3) is used on VGN-AR Series.

It is a graphics card-specific memory technology, designed by ATI Technologies.It has much the same technological base as DDR2, but the power and heat dispersal requirements have been reduced somewhat, allowing for higher-speed memory modules, and simplified cooling systems. Unlike the DDR2 used on graphics cards, GDDR3 is unrelated to the upcoming JEDEC DDR3 specification. This memory uses internal terminators, enabling it to better handle certain graphics demands.
