I'm pretty sure that should be listed as 2 GB/s instead of 2 Gb/s.  Big difference in speed with the two terminologies, so it's important to get it right to avoid confusion.

The abbreviations are correct. To clarify (and it needs it, because the terminology can be confusing), mega/gigabits refers to the transfer rate, whereas mega/gigabyte refers to the size of the module. As it pertains to this story, Elpida's DDR3-2000 modules run at 2Gbps, or 2000Mbps, both of which indicate the transfer rate.
