Computex 2002 Coverage - Day 4 - Kingmax

After three action-packed days, things have finally started to quieten down here at Computex. Our first three days were filled with press conferences, meetings, parties and then a good 4-5 hours each day has been spent on preparing our daily coverage. Most of this year's Computex announcements have been made by now and for the last two days of the show, Cameron and I will be wandering the show floor in search of some new and interesting products to show you. Today we visited Intel, Lian-Li, DFI, ABIT, Kingmax and nVidia, and boy do we have some interesting things to show you. We have information on the upcoming nForce II chipset, nVidia's next generation architecture - the NV30, Lian-Li's new aluminium case range and pictures of the first working ClawHammer sample.

Kingmax

 

 

Kingmax, one of the most popular memory manufacturers in Australia and also one of the top memory manufacturers in the world had a small stand at this year's Computex. They were showcasing their DDR333/DDR400 TinyBGA solutions as well as their Micro-DIMM products and Compact Flash/Secure Digital card solutions.

 

Towards the front of their stand, Kingmax had identical DDR333 and DDR400 demo systems running on Pentium 4 2GHz processors. The purpose of these demos were to show you the performance difference between DDR333 and DDR400. The difference between the two is actually quite significant on a Pentium 4 based system because its 400MHz/533MHz front side bus can easily take advantage of DDR400's extra bandwidth. However, on an AMD Athlon/Duron system the performance difference is negligible because the memory is being held back by the Athlon's 266MHz front side bus.

 

 

In the near future Kingmax DDR400 modules will be hitting the market in both 256MB and 512MB flavours. Kingmax have some interesting changes planned for their future memory modules that we can't tell you about just yet, however, it will definitely be something to look out for.
