Micron zal volgende week op de Windows Hardware Engineering Conference in New Orleans een demonstratie geven van haar in eigen huis ontwikkelde Samurai DDR SDRAM memory controller. Er zullen drie systemen getoond worden, waarvan eentje met twee processors en dual channel PC2100 DDR SDRAM. Micron maakt voor het dual channel systeem gebruik van twee Samurai controllers:
Micron will demonstrate a dual processor, single controller platform that has achieved industry-leading scores in multiple independent performance benchmark testing. For example, in a recent performance analysis done by Inquest Market Research, this platform exceeded the performance of other leading-edge systems in a majority of comparisons.
Micron will also display a dual processor, dual controller platform demonstrating DDR SDRAM memory in high-performance server and workstation applications, as well as a single processor, single controller platform targeted at desktop applications. All three platforms use Micron's Samurai memory controller with a 133MHz front side bus and 266MHz DDR SDRAM main memory.
With the DRAM market segmenting and DRAM technology becoming increasingly complex, Micron is focusing on ways to help its customers implement new high-performance DRAM products. "Our Integrated Products Group developed these DDR SDRAM platforms as reference designs that our customers can use in designing DDR systems," said Jeff Mailloux, Micron's Director of DRAM Marketing. "We believe that the strong performance capabilities of DDR SDRAM are showcased in these platforms."
