Hyundai heeft vandaag bekend gemaakt dat de eerste PC266 DDR SDRAM samples gereleased heeft. De samples gaan tot 143MHz en omdat het hier om Double Data Rata SDRAM gaat zijn de prestaties in theorie dubbel zo hoog als die van standaard SDRAM (vandaar de benaming 'PC266' voor 133Mhz DDR SDRAM):
HEI (President : Kim Young-Hwan) has released the samples of 128 DDR (Double Data Rate) Synchronous DRAM, the newly standardized next-generation high-speed memory for the first time.
The product released by HEI is the first product produced for the first time that meets the standardization of PC266A(CL2). HEI has risen as the leading company in the DDR Synchronous DRAM market by releasing the samples of 128M DDR Synchronous DRAM only three months after it was designated as the supplier of DDR SDRAM based upon the fact that its superiority in quality was proven while it supplied IBM and Hewlett-Packard with 64M DDR Synchronous DRAM chips and modules (DDR SDRAM hereafter) earlier this year.
The 128M DDR Synchronous DRAM developed and produced by HEI has its width of circuit of 0.22 micron (1 micron=1/a million meter), and has its consuming voltage as low as 2.5 v., and meets the standardization of PC266A(CLC) finalized by JEDEC (Joint Electron Device Engineering Council).
Also, it supports various width of data bus such as 4,8, and 16 bit, supports the KLUK frequency as high as 143 MHz covering 133 MHz, and fits the products which need a large amount of memory such as PC servers and highly capable workstations since its transmitting speed is 286 Mbps (143MHz X 2) at 266Mbps (bit per second, 133 MHz X 2), more than twice as fast as the DRAMs are at the same frequency.
De K7 chipsets zullen in ieder geval support krijgen voor DDR SDRAM. Van Intel hoef je dat niet zo snel te verwachten, want die zitten in het vijandige Rambus kamp.
