Pairing an Intel system with DDR3 memory may just be a reasonable expense later this year. According to a report by DigiTimes, memory makers hope that prices for DDR3 memory will slip to within 10% of DDR2 prices in the second half of this year.
Reportedly, Intel is making an “aggressive push” to promote its DDR3-based platforms, and system memory manufacturers are working with the semiconductor giant to pull forward their schedules for DDR3 memory production. The manufacturers expect Intel to subsidize PC makers to sell more DDR3-based systems, and they estimate that 30% of new PCs shipped worldwide will be DDR3-powered in the fourth quarter of this year.
