Hynix announced the development of what the company claims is the world’s first 550-MHz DDR SDRAM memory device. Hynix of South Korea claims to be the only DRAM supplier currently capable of yielding 550-MHz DDR SDRAM in the marketplace. Hynix expects its new DDR550 SDRAM device will attract high performance PC users and computer game enthusiasts. The company also anticipates strong demand for DDR550, as PCs are expected to adopt Intel new Grantsdale chipset, which supports both DDR and DDR2 technologies. Hynix started providing samples of its 550-MHz DDR SDRAM to customers last month. Volume production is slated for April 2004.
