Micron demos DDR333 chips

And a chipset to support it

Micron yesterday unveiled its own chipset designed to support the DDR333 SDRAM, part of a plan to kick-start the adoption of the memory specification.

Not, you understand, that Micron plans to sell the product - it's simply been created to show how easy it is to support DDR333.

Not that the world's major chipset manufacturers need much prompting. Acer Labs, SIS and VIA have all now announced chipsets that will support DDR333.

DDR333 isn't expected to go into mass production until early next year, but chipset vendors clearly feel the need to begin promoting the technology now. Memory companies too - Micron demonstrated its DDR333 modules this week, and others, like Samsung and Hynix, have already begin to produce initial samples. ®
