Samsung may be having a tough time meeting Intel's high demand for RDRAM chips, but it's happy to churn out DDR parts for Chipzilla's arch-rival, AMD.

Yesterday, the Korean conglomerate proudly announced that Chimpzilla has given the thumbs-up to ten of its DDR memory modules, ranging from 64MB to 256MB, in PC1600 and PC2100. AMD, Samsung said, has validated the modules for use with its 760 chipset, itself designed to support AMD's Athlon CPU.

Hurrah!

And Samsung was quick to point out that while AMD has approved ten of its modules, the processor maker has only endorsed two of its rivals' DDR offerings.

Hurrah! Hurrah!

The DDR modules also go rather nicely with VIA's Apollo Pro 266 and KT266 chipsets (which also supports Chipzilla's CPUs).

All of these memory parts are available now, and, said Samsung US' senior VP of sales and marketing, Dieter Mackowiak, cited by EBN, that should ease demand for the high-speed memory chips. ®
