Engineering samples of Viking Components' 184-pin unbuffered DDR SDRAM modules are now shipping. The modules, which support the AMD-760 chipset, are available in either 128MB or 256MB.

For those who do not read the hardware site, or the Roundup, DDR stands for Double Data Rate. The idea is that it sends and receives data on both the rising and falling edges of a clock cycle, making it twice as fast. It is also an inexpensive option, compared with competing technologies such as Rambus*.

A company spokesman said that Viking had pursued DDR as a memory technology becaus of the benefits it brings to the customers. He said: "We are pleased Viking is committed to being among the first to bring DDR memory modules to market and to help meet the anticipated demand for this next-generation technology." ®

*Please don't email me telling me how wonderful/crap [delete as appropriate] Rambus is. Thank you.
