Crucial PC2100 DDR flies through door

It's certainly selling very quickly

Updated PC-2100 DDR SDRAM is clearly very hot stuff indeed. Micron Technology's memory-selling subsidiary Crucial, which began offering the DIMMs on its Web site on Monday, is selling like the proverbial hot cakes.

That may explain why we've been getting messages that the company doesn't actually have any for delivery, despite offering the technology at near PC-133 prices all week.

A Crucial spokeswoman tacitly denied the charge, citing the hot cakes-like rate at which the parts are being ordered. Of course, selling a product and shipping it aren't the same thing. However, with Crucial's PC2100 product arriving in volume in the UK now - and UK readers have already started receiving modules, as have North American readers - we'd be surprised it really isn't shipping in the US.

We understood that sales were being made every five seconds, but we understood wrong - sales were peaking at one every five seconds. So we stand corrected. A Crucial rep also tells us: "If there are any cases of memory not being shipped, they are few and far between. PC2100 DDR is moving out the door very quickly, both in the U.S. and in Europe."

So there you go. Last point for all you AMD fans, hefty PC2100 DDR demand also translates into hefty demand for Athlons. ®
