DigiTimes reports Intel has validated Elpida's DDR3 memory chips for the G33 Bearlake chipset:
The testing validates that Elpida's DDR3 memory can run on Intel's reference platform and recognizes the excellent quality and reliability of Elpida products, said the memory maker.
Since completing development of its DDR3 SDRAM in August 2005, Elpida has been delivering DIMM samples and developing high-speed, low-power circuit technologies. Elpida has taken advantage of its development of DDR3 memory to proceed with the start-up of the DDR3 memory platform based on close cooperation between Intel and Elpida which has already resulted in the shipment of tens of thousands of sample DIMMs to Intel for validation testing.
Elpida believes that securing the Intel validation has demonstrated that it can quickly enable its next-generation DDR3 memory platform.
