Micron ships 1Gb DDR 2 chips

DIMM designs too

Micron has begun shipping 1Gb DDR 2 chips, and has designed DIMMs to take the parts, along with its 256Mb and 512Mb DDR 2 chips, the company will say today.

The announcement represents little more than willy-waving on Micron's... er... part. Demand for DDR 2 isn't expected to kick in until next quarter when Intel ships its first chipsets that support the technology.

By then, Hynix will be shipping 1Gb DDR 2 parts. Other companies' 512Mb DDR 2 lines will be well ramped too.

They will all offer registered, unbuffered DIMMs, based on their DDR 2 chips and aimed at workstations and servers.

Micron began sampling its 1Gb DDR 2 chip last October. ®
