Memory makers "KingMax" have just further extended their Venus series of memory modules with a new DDRII 667MHz SO-DIMM designed primarily to support Intel's mobile "Napa" platform for notebooks.

KingMax's press release has all the details, and then some.

KINGMAX,Taipei Jan 19,2006 - Intel's recent announcement of its new mobile platform - Napa - has propelled the already rapidly developing mobile technology industry into the third generation. The announcement also implies that dual-core systems will soon be available for notebooks. In only one short year, Intel has exceeded Moore's Law in the evolution from Sonoma to Napa, and once again proven its undisputed superiority in the CPU industry.

The Napa architecture consists of three components, the CPU, chipset and wireless module, all of which have been updated with the new generation- the Intel 945 series chipset, Intel Core processor and Intel 3945ABG wireless module. The biggest differences between Napa and the second-generation Sonoma platform are the upgrade of the front-side bus to 667MHz, support for PCI.
