AMD to go DDR3 by end of 2008

The first Intel chipsets with support for DDR3 memory are slowly arriving but for AMD the switch will be a lot later. According to FUD Zilla AMD doesn't plan to start using DDR3 memory until the end of next year.
As my original story states that AMD doesn’t believe that it has to move to DDR3 until late 2008 or early 2009, as this is the time when this memory is suppose to go to mainstream.

Barcelona is DDR2 and Hypertransport 2, Budapest will be the first one to support Hypertransport 3 and DDR3 together with parts beyond 45 nanometre, such as the quad core codenamed Shanghai.
