VIA Announces Wide Choice of Validated DDR333 Memory Modules Compatible with New VIA Apollo DDR333 Chipset platforms
Leading memory vendors set for volume production of ultra-fast, reliable and compatible PC2700 memory modules in support of VIA DDR333 chipset platform
Taipei, Taiwan, 12th March 2002 - VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator and developer of silicon chip technologies and PC platform solutions, today announced the support of leading memory vendors for a broad migration to high performance DDR333 in 2002.
With the launch of the VIA Apollo KT333 for the AMD Athlon(tm) XP processor and the forthcoming VIA Apollo P4X333 for the Intel® Pentium® 4 processor, memory manufacturers and module suppliers including Samsung Semiconductor, Micron Technology, Hynix Semiconductor, Infineon Technologies, Nanya Technology and Elpida Memory have started to ship DDR333 (PC2700) modules and devices specifically tested for compatibility with VIA chipsets.
"VIA DDR333 chipset platforms will deliver unparalleled system performance to the marketplace" said Richard Brown, Director of Marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. "With a choice of validated PC2700 modules now available, end users have the security they need to upgrade to DDR333 with confidence"
"Hynix's DDR333 memory modules, used in conjunction with VIA's Apollo KT333, delivers outstanding performance and features," said Farhad Tabrizi, Vice President of Worldwide Memory Marketing for Hynix Semiconductor Inc. "Hynix continues to pave the way for availability of low cost, high performance DDR features, utilizing validated PC2700 architecture and providing consumers with powerful technology that delivers exceptional system performance."
"Our customers tell us that speed counts," said Tom Quinn, Samsung Semiconductor, Inc.'s vice president of marketing. "Samsung's fully validated DDR333 memory modules will ensure that VIA DDR333 chipset platform customers will have all the high-performance memory they need at competitive
"Micron has been working with industry partners to enable DDR SDRAM and we are happy to report that DDR333 is well on its way to becoming the next DDR speed grade to be supported," said Brett Williams, Micron DRAM Strategic Marketing Manager. "Having validated our DDR333 modules with VIA's KT333 chipset, we will ramp production of DDR333 to coincide with industry demand."

Over at Silicon Strategies they have a news story up on Kentron Technologies Inc. to accelerate QBM memory technology into the market by year's end which promises to double the speeds of DDR SDRAM memory for PC's.
For those people who visit Adrian's Rojak Pot but have wondered if the site had died along with numerous other that have lately well two weeks ago, they was hit by persistent DOS attacks and although their host repeatedly restored the site they kept hit by them. So, finally ARP had to remain shut down because their host couldn't get back from his vacation to set things right. Till he comes back, they have temporarily mirrored Adrian's Rojak Pot on a different server. The new temporary URL to Adrian's Rojak Pot is http://www.itcp.net/~awsh/
Cameron "Sov" Johnson has just finished up his latest review of some Kingmax PC2100 DDR SDRAM for your viewing pleasure. They have incorporated their famous TinyBGA technology into their DDR line, so let's go see if its any good.
