Hynix is to launch volume production of DDR550 in April

Korean Hynix finished the development of DDR550 SDRAM and informed about the volume production starting in April 2004. DDR550 are intended for enthusiasts and, according to the press release might become an intermediate variant for those, who think about moving to DDR2 SDRAM.


According to the company, the demand for DDR550 will start to grow when the Intel´s Grantsdale desktop chipset is announced in Q2 this year (as you know, it will support both DDR SDRAM, and DDR2 SDRAM allowing for an intermediate upgrades until the new memory prices go down). Considering that Grantsdale´s share will make 30% of all desktop chipsets, on the threshold of a probable upgrade wave, Hynix started sampling DDR550 SDRAM last month.

However, also considering that Hynix is actually the only memory vendor that can provide enough DDR550 in the market, I guess the demand for this memory type will not be high in the nearest future or even until the mass transition to DDR2, as even the existing DDR400 is only starting to become the mainstream.
