DDR chipset from AMD
According to US reports, the first manufacturers with AMD's new DDR chipset '760' will be ready for delivery in November. Dual processing boards are due to arrive in January. AMD held a manufacturer conference in Minneapolis on Thursday. MSI is said to have already presented a finished board with a 760 chipset.
MSI Germany already has the 'MSI -6143 'confirmed. MSI plans to deliver this board for PC1600 and PC2100 memories between November and December. The corresponding memory modules from Crucial are already available and supposedly no more expensive than SDRAM. AMD will probably miss the launch of the Pentium 4, as MSI assumes that AMD will not be able to deliver the '760' in large numbers until November. But the Pentium 4 should (for the time being) be more expensive fun, as it currently only runs with RAM bus memory. According to a further report, the “760 MP” for 2 Thunderbirds or 2 Durons will appear in early 2001, but AMD did not comment on this on Friday.
