Price parity evades DDR market

Boise, Idaho -- It turns out that Micron Technology's vow to sell DDR modules at parity with single data rate SDRAM DIMMS was a "campaign promise."
When double data rate chips suddenly became scarce and DDR started selling at a nice premium over SDRAM, guess who is no longer selling at parity?
Processor makers need to climb off the speed bandwagon

Forget it, Intel. The processor clock speed race is over, killed by its own success.
ITEM: The faster the processor runs, the more circuitry is needed to control the chip at fantastic speeds. That additional overhead cuts into the processing power, according to the October issue of MIT's Technology Review Magazine.
