DDR-SDRAM Has Finally Arrived
Краткое содержание статьи: Today AMD is launching the 760 chipset, providing the first official platform with DDR SDRAM support. Will this new memory type be able to live up to the high expectations that were generated in the last 12 months? We tested PC2100 DDR SDRAM on two Athlon platforms with AMD760 chipset and one Pentium III platform with VIA's upcoming Apollo Pro266.

The first time we heard about the future successor of the popular SDRAM memory type 'DDR'-SDRAM is several years ago now. Back then it simply sounded like the logical consequence to prolong the life of synchronous memory and the anticipation was as high as the expectation to soon welcome this speed-improved new memory type in the market. It took surprisingly long until now finally the first DDR SDRAM-equipped systems started to become available. The main reason for the long delay was the once so strong semi-monopolist Intel, which had announced about two years ago, that the future performance memory type would not be DDR-SDRAM memory, but Rambus RDRAM. At this time it almost looked as if DDR-SDRAM would never make it in the PC as main memory, because products that weren't supported by Intel's processors happened to die within a short period of time.

Intel And Rambus Weren't Able To Stop DDR-SDRAM

Things worked out differently though. The marriage with Rambus started an unfortunately long line of failures for the Santa Clara-based chipmaker. At the same time Intel's arch rival AMD started to come out with the K7-architecture, today known as Athlon and Duron, which happened to be rightfully received very positively. AMD gained market share while Intel lost it. The Taiwanese chipset maker VIA benefited from Intel's Rambus-policy as well and finally all the support was there that was needed for the successful launch of the DDR-SDRAM technology. Intel had to learn that products could be successful even without the blessing from Santa Clara. Today, Intel has finally announced the break-up with Rambus and we know that there will be Intel-chipsets with DDR-SDRAM support soon too.
