Intel has published details about next-generation DDR3 memory chips that are certified to be compatible with its core-logic sets.
Seven companies have received validation from Intel to produce chips according to the standard including Elpida Memory, Hynix Semiconductor, Micron Technology, Qimonda AG, Nanya and Samsung Electronics.
So far Intel has validated 512Mb and 1Gb memory chips with 800MHz and 1066MHz clock-speeds.
Initially the company’s P35 and G33 chipsets will only support PC3-8500 (DDR3 1066MHz) memory. It seems that the advanced X38 core-logic will support PC3-10600 (DDR3 1333MHz) memory speed later this year.
