Default AMD plans DDR3 chipset in Q1 2009

AMD always lets the joys of technology births to Intel and after some time it just jumps on a bandwagon and embraces a new technology, but only after it gets more affordable. They did it with DDR to DDR2 transition and this time they are doing it with DDR2 to DDR3 transition.

Intel spent a lot of money convincing people that DDR3 was and is a good thing but it didn’t have much success selling a lot DDR3 based motherboards due to the ridiculous prices of DDR3 throughout 2007 and most of 2008.

Today you can get a vanilla OCZ 1GB DDR3 value for €35, or 2GB for €70 for both Corsair and OCZ which is quite reasonable but still much more expensive than DDR2 prices. This is enough for AMD to go to DDR3 chipsets and CPUs. mid=36
