I-O Data introduces DDR2-400/533 SDRAM SO-DIMM modules
I-O Data updated its notebook memory products with two DDR2 SDRAM SO-DIMM series: SDX533 and SDX400, both including 256, 512 MB and 1 GB modules and will be available late in January 2005.
DDR2-533 (CL=4) features 4.3 GB/s bandwidth (up to 8.6 GB/s in dual-channel mode), DDR2-400 supports 3.2 (6.4) GB/s. Compare this to 2.7 (5.4) GB/s of the today´s most popular DDR333 SDRAM .
All new modules work at 1.8 V and strictly follow JEDEC specs.
These are company´s first SO-DIMM modules based on the new-generation chips. As you might remember, other already announced solutions of this kind include products from KINGMAX, Hynix and Transcend. Besides, Kingston was one of the first to announce availability of DDR2-400/533 SDRAM SO-DIMM as well as Elpida and Micron.
Actually there´s only a few ready DDR2 SDRAM SO-DIMM solutions. Considering that first of these were announced in October 2003, you can see that the desktop market is way more dynamic comparing to the notebook market.
