Micron, a major worldwide manufacturer of memory, said today that it will demo three platforms using double data rate (DDR) memory at WinHec 2000 in New Orleans next week. The products it will show include a dual processor platform. Although Micron does not say this is better than Rambus, it does point to benchmarks conducted by market research firm Inquest, which it claims shows that it exceeds "other leading edge systems in a majority of comparisons". The other leading edge system is Rambus. Micron will also show a dual processor dual controller platform aimed at the workstation and server markets, as well as a uniprocessor system. The three platforms all use Micron's Samurai technology, and will run 266MHz memory modules and use a 133MHz front side bus. Micron claims it developed the solutions because the DRAM market is segmenting and the technology is becoming more complex. They are reference platforms, the firm said. The products are intended to show the performance delta that DDR memory offers, Micron added. ®
