"Digital Networks today announced availability of the new Athlon
DDR platform. The new platform features DDR (Double Data Rate)
memory technology that doubles peak data throughput to the
processor by up to 100 percent compared to its predecessor,
Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory (SDRAM), at comparable
costs to SDRAM solutions. AMD's DDR platform solution, which
includes the award-winning AMD Athlon processor, provides the
foundation to continue AMD's leadership position in supplying
high-performance solutions for the performance PC space."
"DDR memory is an evolutionary technology that promises
revolutionary rewards for computer users. Fundamentally, DDR memory
technology doubles a PC's available memory data transfer rate, at
comparable costs to today's SDRAM solutions," said Richard Heye,
vice president and general manager of AMD's Microprocessor Division
in Texas. "With DDR memory, a major performance bottleneck is
removed, allowing PCs to take advantage of increasing processor
"The Athlon DDR platform also includes the new ATA-100 IDE disk
controller. Pre-installed operating system options include Red
Hat Linux or Microsoft Windows."
