DRAM makers asked to produce more DDR@ 2005/11/16
With Intel reportedly scheduled to restart production of entry-level 865GV chipsets this quarter, the chip giant requested DRAM makers to allot more capacity for DDR, according to sources at memory makers.
Although adjusting capacity to DDR production is not a tough job for makers, they commented that they are being caught in a dilemma, as it is uncertain that whether demand for DDR-supported chipsets will persist.
With reference to the production adjustments among memory makers in the past few months, players have been ramping DDR production on Intel’s request, the sources noted. However, memory makers are still looking forward to a growing acceptance of DDR2 in the market and they have reserved a major portion of their capacity for such production.
