The Inquirer talked to several memory makers this week and heard that the market isn't ready yet for DDR3. This new type of memory won't make it big in 2007, they say.
Some manufacturers are ready to meet Intel's demands and launch the modules but DDR3 will take only a few percent of the total market in 2007. It is a good concept and it will get cooler and the voltages will decrease. And speeds will go higher than 1333MHz soon.
DDR 2 remains the next big thing and will rule the mainstream. Vista will pump up demand for memory and some emerging markets such as south America, eastern Europe are still stuck with DDR one.
