    SimpleTech, Inc. today announced the joint effort between SimpleTech and AMD to define registers and modules for a DDR3 SDRAM Registered Dual-Inline Memory Module (RDIMM). DDR3 RDIMM modules are planned as the natural evolution over today's DDR2-based solutions and designed to deliver the increased performance and energy efficiency required for future commercial servers and workstations. DDR3 RDIMMs are designed to accommodate up to 8GB per memory slot with increased frequency to 1600MHz. The work of the two companies is being conducted within JEDEC, a coalition of approximately 270 companies focused on the creation of open standards for the solid-state technology industry. Evaluation by major chipset makers and system OEMs is expected to begin in early 2007 and full production is planned by 2008. For more information, please click here.

    LOL, I see that "it has begun" the very arguement that people are so quick to discredit is starting to take shape...proprietary solutions :shadedshu . And, they can charge you 2x the price:D . Didn't we get away from that way back in the 80s or 90s...:wtf: By doing so drastically reduce the price of computers...:confused:

    Yeah but that will still drive inflation. Remember AMD has a huge loan to pay back for merging with ATI...
