Acer switches to DDR2 for notebooks as DDR3 supply dries up

Posted on Sunday, August 02 2009 @ 00:20:43 CEST by

Industry sources told DigiTimes that Acer has decided to use DDR2 memory for some of its notebook lineup, including ultrathin models, as DDR3 supplies have increasingly become tight.
Currently, around half of Acer's notebooks feature DDR 3 memory and the company claimed earlier that it would use DDR3 for all of its notebooks in the future.

Acer originally planned to adopt DDR3 memory for all of its ultra-thin notebooks, but the new strategy has affected its recently launched 11.6-inch Aspire 1410 ultra-thin notebook which adopts DDR2 instead, the sources noted.

Acer's new strategy is also expected to slow down the penetration of DDR3, however the sources believe DDR3 will still be the mainstream DRAM specification in 2010 when Calpella shows up.
