Micron Technology has produced a prototype of Copperhead, its DDR SDRAM chipset designed for Pentium III processors. The memory maker says it will have customer samples ready in the first half of 2001, and will go into production later in the year.

Copperhead is positioned for use with entry-level servers. The chipset supports up to 8GB of DDR 200 or 266 SDRAM memory and features a PCI-X bus and a a 64-bit PCI 2.2 bus.

But why does Micron feel the need to release a press release at such an early stage of Copperhead's development? Well, it's Intel Developer Forum this week, and Copperhead is on show there. ®
