Terry Groth, a Product Marketing Manager at Crucial Technology has revealed to bit-tech during a conversation at this weekend's i33 LAN party that making DDR3 memory modules that support both EPP 2.0 and XMP is definitely possible.

However, Groth later added that having modules supporting both Nvidia's and Intel's extended memory performance profile standards "would be a branding nightmare."

Having modules that feature both EPP 2.0 and XMP support is something that we've been wondering ever since the two technologies were introduced and it's good to know that it's possible. Sadly though, because of the brewing war between Intel and Nvidia, it's unlikely that we'll see the two standards supported on the same module.
