Not apparently. I sent one of these links earlier in this thread IIRC.
These papers are by Peter Gutman himself.

"7. Methods of Recovery for Data stored in Random-Access Memory"
"8. Erasure of Data stored in Random-Access Memory"

Data Remanence in Semiconductor Devices -- all 19 pages

It's been a few years since I've read these articles personally.
