Taiwanese memory maker Nanya has begun volume production of 128Mb and 256Mb 166MHz DDR333 SDRAM chips.

Despite the slack demand for memory and the resulting collapse in DRAM prices, Nanya said it will continue to ramp up production through the rest of the year until DDR333 accounts for 20 per cent of the company's output.

Interestingly, Nanya is targeting its 256Mb DDR333 part at high-end systems with CPUs running at 1.5GHz and up. Which, right now, means Pentium 4. Which means it's aiming the chips at machines based on VIA's P4X266 chips. Which isn't surprising since Nanya is effectively a VIA subsidiary. ®
