AM2 may support DDR3 - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Wasn't this a bit older news? As well as a rumor? I think anandtech or someone like that did an interview with AMD about AM2 (or is it M2? heck, don't even remember); anyway, the interview talked about DDR2, not DDR3. I think this article was just a rumor.

Well considering that DDR latency is measured in clocks and GDDR3 latency is measured in nanoseconds, I just don't know lol.

AMD is still behind the DDR2, and now they wanna jump right ahead to DDR3, maybe this will keep AMD'er going

AMD hasen't gone DDR2 becaue they don't need to... Think about it, Intel CPU's like bandwidth, while AMD 64's like tight memory timings. If they went to DDR2, they'd have more bandwidth than they need but won't have the tight timings that the 64's like. With the IMC (which intel still lacks) the memory bandwidth with DDR isn't lacking. Once they go for more dual core and quad core, they will use up more memory bandwidth, and that's where DDR2 and DDR3 will come in.
