Kingston Technology, whose motto should surely be "we'll sleep with anyone if we can flog more memory", has entered into a DDR (double data rate) deal with Nanya.

Nanya, observant readers will recall, is a daughter company of Formosa Plastics, making it a sister company of Via, the plucky chipset firm that also sells fanless and fabless CPUs.

Kingston, you will maybe remember, told The Register in detail last year of the extensive facilities it has to knock out Rambus memory.

Now Nanya has introduced an "exclusive" sales promotion with Kingston on high performance PC2100 266MHz DDR modules. The deal operates in the US, European and Far East territories and starts next Monday.

According to Nanya, Kingston will knock out DDR modules to mobo makers, system integrators and other volume outlets with prices starting at $55 for a 128MB PC 1600 unbuffered module and $79 for the PC2100 module.

The deal also applies to other DDR memory types.

According to Ken Hurley, president of Nanya in the US and Europe, the programme will help ease the shortage of affordable DDR memory.

Kingston's Al Soni said that its customers were "already in need of DDR memory modules in quantity". ®
