Boise, Id. Micron Technology Inc. has made available to the notebook market PC2-5300 memory modules that incorporate ATI Technologies' new DDR2 chipset.
DDR2 PC2-5300 unbuffered, dual in-line memory modules (UDIMM) are available in production in densities ranging from 256-Megabytes (Mbyte) to 1-Gigabytes (Gbyte), and small outline, dual in-line memory modules (SO DIMM) are being offered in densities ranging from 256-Mbytes to 512-Mbytes.
They support 4-slot desktops and 2-slot notebooks, respectively.
According to Terry Lee, executive director of advanced technology and strategic marketing for Micron's Systems Memory Group, DDR2 adoption continues to gain momentum. "The high speed, high bandwidth and low power characteristics of DDR2 technology enhance the performance of today's notebook applications. Micron is pleased to be the first memory supplier to achieve validation with ATI's new Radeon Xpress 200M mobile chipset."
Since 512-Mbyte is considered the mainstream, Micron provided pricing in that density. A 512-Mbyte PC2-5300 SODIMM is priced between $110 and $130, and a 512-Mbyte PC2-5300 UDIMM costs around $100 to $125.
