In what could be a preemptive strike against Intel Corp., Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) and SimpleTech Inc. announced a joint effort to define registers and other specifications for DDR3-based SDRAM memory modules.
The companies will define and develop SDRAM registered dual-inline memory modules (RDIMMs). DDR3 RDIMM modules are planned as the natural evolution over today's DDR2-based solutions.
The work of the two companies is being conducted within JEDEC, a coalition of approximately 270 companies focused on the creation of open standards.
