Images of AMD's DDR chipset

The first pictures of AMD's new DDR chipset, called '760', are now available on tecChannel. The chipset should come on the market this year.

Micron supplies the DDR memory required for this (maximum 2.1 GByte/s). tecChannels test computer with Thunderbird CPU ran at 133MHz FSB, which, thanks to DDR, corresponds to 266MHz.

The 760 can handle PC-266 modules, with a maximum of 2.1 GByte per second, i.e. more than a RAMBUS -Channel that reaches 'just' 1.6 GB/s with PC-800 modules. The 760 from AMD should also handle 4x AGP.
