CeBIT Nvidia is to introduce support for DDR333 fast memory with the 615-D and the 620-D, the latest members of the nForce chipset family.

Both products will launch "within 60 days", according to Drew Henry, general manager, of Nvidia's platform processors division.

Speaking at CeBIT, Henry pointed to nForce's 128-bit DDR memory architecture, and its tight integration with the graphic system. This differentiates nForce from most system architectures, "which generally don't improve much with (better) memory performance," he said.

The nForce platform is designed for the AMD Athlon family of CPUs, and incorporates AMD's hypertransport fast I/O standard in its products. Samsung, described by Nvidia, as its "memory partner", is running a tech demo of a machine featuring an nForce chipset using DDR400-supporting DIMMs on one of its many booths at CeBIT. This delivers 20 per cent more performance than the DDR333 version, according to Henry.

nForce product incorporating DDR400 support will launch "maybe the second half of this year, maybe next year," he said. ®
