Micron's subsidiary Crucial, which sells memory upgrades, said today that it is offering a PC1600 DDR upgrade and is promoting the fact by selling that at the same price as SDRAM PC-133 modules.

Although some memory manufacturers, notably Mosel-Vitelic, said that DDR prices would soon be at a par with SDRAM prices, that hasn't happened so far.

In fact, DDR modules have been expensive and that, so far, has prevented a large-scale take up of the parts.

The firm is making the modules available to end users -- formerly there were sold to OEMs.

Micron is currently in a legal dispute with Rambus Ink and does not want to license DDR from the Mountain View intellectual property factory.

Details of pricing and the like are on the crucial.com site. ®
