Infineon posts DDR 3 prototype to Intel

Filed under
Hardware

The German company said yesterday it had shipped chips to "leading PC industry developers", by which it apparently means Intel.

Still it's early days yet. DDR 3 is not expected to be used in systems until the end of 2006, and the major memory makers, Infineon included, are not expecting to sample products until the second half of that year. Volume production will follow toward the end of the year, provided there are platforms available that support it - hence the need to get Intel on board.

DDR 3 isn't expected to outsell DDR 2 until 2008, according to market watcher iSuppli.

Samsung showed off what it claimed to be the world's first DDR 3 device, a 512Mb part, back in February. The South Korean company said it would sample the product early next year.

The Infineon device's specifications were not revealed, but the manufacturer did say the part supports a transfer rate of 1067Mbps. Eventually, its DDR 3 chips will shunt bits at 1600Mbps, the company forecast.

That's double the top-end of the DDR 2 specification. DDR 3 consumes less power too. It's set at 1.5V to DDR 2's 1.8V. ®

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
