Corsair introduceert een PC133 DIMM met de erg relaxte capaciteit van 256Megabyte (en Fempie zat te denken wat de Sint 'm moest gaan schenken...). Euh, hier wat spul uit de press release:
Corsair Memory Inc., the industry leader in high density DRAM Dual In-Line Memory Modules (DIMMs) has announced that it is now shipping fully qualified production units of 256Mbyte PC133 memory modules which use 128Mbit DRAM components. The Corsair 256Mbyte PC133 modules are designed to support the new VIA PC133 chipset, and latest AMD chipset on motherboards with the 133MHz memory bus, like the Tyan S1854 Trinity 400, AOpen AX63 PRO and the Microstar MS-6167. These modules are also backward compatible with motherboards designed to support PC100 compliant modules.
Most PC133 compliant motherboards are designed to support up to 768Mbytes of memory. The Corsair 256Mbyte PC133 module allows these motherboard to be fully populated with the maximum amount of allowable memory. Because the Corsair module is built with high density PC133 128Mbit DRAM components, the modules can remain ‘Unbuffered” and can be used together with 64Mbyte and 128Mbyte PC133 modules.
The Corsair PC133 256Mbyte module part number is CM654S256-133. These modules are available for shipment immediately. The Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) as of October 28, 1999 is $643.00.
