GA-Hardware heeft een verslag van de WinHEC online gemikt, maar daarin onder andere een pic van het dual FC-PGA plankje dat Micron demonstreerde. Met bord is gebaseerd op de Samurai chipset en maakt gebruik van DDR SDRAM:
Verder in het artikel heeft GA-Hardware nog wat info over de GeForce2 GTS en AMD760 DDR chipset:
AMD was using a DDR system in their booth as well as a few others. In the Micron booth, as well as in AMD's suite, there were Spitfire/SocketA (Duron I think is the official name now) motherboards in action. A part of why DDR is gaining momentum is that it is a technology that the memory manufacturers helped design. It is different from SDRAM in that it can be accessed twice per clock cycle on the rising and falling edges of the signal (similar to 2x AGP). Since the internals of the chips are similar to SDRAM, it does not cost the manufacturers significantly more than SDRAM to make DDRRAM.
Also worth mentioning is that AMD did have stable working Thunderbird and Spitfire processors running in their suite. Its nice to see that they have solid silicon on both of these, as they should present some solid competition to Intel in the desktop market which is good for all of us. Increased competition raises performance while lowering costs. Something that I hadn't realized before my talk with AMD is that currently AMD supplies over 60% of laptop CPUs. Its good to see that there is finally a more serious competition in the CPU marketplace.
