Well here's a sure sign DDR-II memory was never really going anywhere in the market, not to mention AMD's declination towards the stuff, skipping and looking further on into the distance. CoolTechZone have written up an article today which brief's us on the next big thing to hit us in the memory scene, that of DDR3 which is expected to start doing the rounds sometime in 2006.
Even though DDR is still a strong choice and isn't expected to decline much until AMD adopts the DDR2 standard, it looks like DDR3 modules are on the horizon as well. Manufacturers are finally being optimistic about DDR2 sales, and DDR2 has been through various speed steps to actually be a worthwhile standard with Intel platform with 1066MHz system bus. Although the market appears to be optimistic, DDR2 sales aren't nearly anywhere close to what manufacturers might expect and from what it seems the market is about get crowded a lot more in late 2006.
