Micron Technology is Readying 4GB DDR-II Modules

Thanks xStainDx. Micron Technology delivered the industry's 4GB DDR-II registered dual in-line memory module to Intel Corporation. The new products may find themselves in IA32e Intel-based servers or workstations at a later date.

Micron's 240-pin PC2-4300 DDR-II registered DIMM modules are based on the company's 1Gb DDR-II components using a stacked FBGA technology. The Boise, Idaho-based memory firm does not elaborate on timeframes it expects 4GB memory sticks to go into mass production, but keeping in mind that the company has strong plans for DDR-II ramp, possible availability timeframe of 4GB devices for server and workstation makers seems to be mid-2004. The question is whether there will be immediate market opportunities for such products?

In the second quarter of 2004 Intel will release its Lindenhurst chipset – also known as E7710 – for dual-way server applications powered by Xeon processors code-named Nocona and eventually Jayhawk. The E7710 aka Lindenhurst core-logic will support Intel Xeon chips with 800MHz Quad Pumped Bus, dual-channel PC2700 DDR and PC2-3200 DDR-II SDRAM memory with ECC support.
