Corsair ships PC-133 SDRAM
Is it the thin end of the Direct Rambus wedge?
Those people at Corsair have told us that PC-133 synchronous memory modules are now in full production. The modules come in 64Mb and 128Mb sizes and Corsair said they have passed tests on a pre-production Asus motherboard which uses the ViA Enhanced Apollo Pro + chipset. The DIMMs use 7.5 ns (nanosecond) Micron memory. The modules will work with Intel PC-100 compatible systems and will give better performance, Corsair claimed. The modules cost $115 and $222 respectively. Now when will see them plugged into boards supported by an Intel chipset? Does the chip giant have a secret back up plan, because of the delay of Direct Rambus? Or not? ®
