DRAM makers mass to support Lindenhurst

Hynix, Samsung, Elpida and Infineon join Micron

Hynix, Samsung, Elpida and Infineon have all begun touting their DDR 2 memory for Intel's upcoming Xeon DP chipset, codenamed 'Lindenhurst', just as Micron did, earlier today.

Hynix has submitted its 512Mb DDR 2 chip to Intel for official Lindenhurst validation and reports that Lindenhurst mobos will boot successfully if registered DIMMs based on its DDR 2 chips are fitted. So say Elpida - its 1Gb part is Lindenhurst-friendly, too - and Infineon.

Samsung, meanwhile, is simply saying its own 512Mb part is "ready to meet the needs of a new generation of high performance PCs and servers", making no mention of Lindenhurst per se.

All four companies are offering 400MHz and 533MHz DDR 2. Elpida's chips are available now. Samsung's parts are sampling, as are Infineon's. So too are Hynix's DDR 2 chips. ®
