X-Bit Labs are reporting that JEDEC held a committee meeting last week in Hawaii which indicated a move to support the DDR400 standard which they continue on to say is probably due to Intel's desire to utilise this type of memory in future.
For us end users, it means we will have the option of choosing more PC3200 modules from other memory manufactures that produce largely by what JEDEC say.
Samsung Electronics added that sales of Samsung's high-speed Double Date Rate (128Mb and 256Mb DDR333 and DDR400) DRAMs surged to more than 10 million units (128Mb equivalent) for the month of November as demand increased for high-speed memory in high-performance PCs and work stations. Currently, Samsung is using a 0.13 micron design rule for its DDR333 and DDR400 devices and is producing a variety of modules in capacities of 128MB, 256MB and 512MB.More information @ X-Bit Labs
