Infineon Announces Availability of DDR400 Components Supporting Intel High Performance Roadmap; New PC3200 DIMMs to Boost PC Main Memory Performance
"We will see DDR400 support the highest performance Pentium® 4 processor desktop and workstation systems in 2003. We are pleased that Infineon will support our roadmap by offering Intel compliant DDR400 memory for these applications," said Pete MacWilliams, Intel Senior Fellow.
"Our leading-edge fab process, with its high number of die per wafer, allows us to produce modules in volume almost instantaneously when the market begins to emerge, said Heinz Florian, Vice President of Marketing and Logistics for Infineon Memory Products. By the end of this year, we expect that DDR400 will be the memory of choice for high performance desktops and workstations, and we are pleased to be able to support the transition to these next generation systems.
