Dell is switching to new memory

As it is mentioned at Digitimes, Dell expects to move to 256Mbit (16Mbit x 16) DDR graphics memory from the current mainstream standard of 128Mbit (8Mbit x 16) DDR due to the relative high price of the 128Mbit memory, according to Taiwanese DRAM maker sources.

The price of 128Mbit DDR graphics memory has risen sharply, up by 40% to around US$3.50 from US$2.50 one month ago. Currently a 256Mbit DDR die goes for around US$5. Four 256Mbit die (at a cost of about US$20), instead of eight 128Mbit die (at a cost of about US$28), can be used to provide 128MB of memory.

According to sources, Dell is considering a switch from offering Nvidia’s GeForce4 MX440 based on the NV18 core to the revised NV18B core in the fourth quarter. Nvidia is designing the revised core to support 256Mbit DDR in conjunction with its value graphics processors.
