Intel, SiS and VIA to support 800MHz DDR2 memory

Posted on Tuesday, Mar 21 2006 @ 22:13 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
X-bit Labs reports Intel, SiS and VIA will officially support DDR2 800MHz memory later this year:
A roadmap of Intel Corp. indicates that Intel’s Q965, G965 and P965 chipsets will support dual-channel DDR2 memory at 800MHz, 667MHz and 533MHz along with support for dual-core processors with 1066MHz processor system bus. The difference between the chipsets is mainly in market positioning and integration of the graphics core: the Q965 and G965 both have built-in graphics processor, but the latter is intended for home users, while the former is for business users.
AMD will have unofficial support for DDR2 800MHz memory and according to some sources even for 1066MHz DDR2 memory.
