No FB-DIMM Support in Desktops – Claims Intel.

@ 2005/04/11
Intel Corp. said it would not support fully-buffered DIMMs in its desktop platforms because of high costs of FB-DIMMs amid necessity of personal computers to be very affordable. The move is likely to alter the memory market and even have an impact on Intel’s arch-rival Advanced Micro Devices.

“Currently we have no plans to support FB-DIMM technology on desktop platforms because these platforms target the volume market. Naturally, this market can’t accept too much additional cost. This is the main reason why we will continue to support standard unbuffered DIMMs,” said Sunil Kumar, Intel’s director of chipset marketing, in an interview with DigiTimes web-site.
