    Yes,* does he have any proof of that too. I tend to believe Micron is the orginal GDDR-3 along with ATI from the get go. Samsung is late to the game but was needed to even think of having GDDR3 on this gen of Vidcards. One manufacture of GDDR3 would not be healthy. That said Micron is about two speeds ahead in production...that would be for this year. But then i cant give any real proof either, maybe i can hunt down some kinda proof.
    This being a preview of Nv40 seems the OT bug has struck again.

    That was my understanding also. It's also my understanding that he doesn't understand what he's talking about. :wink:

    You've got it the wrong way around. ATI designed GDDR3 with Micron. After it was ratified, Samsung could make GDDR3 to the same spec, possibly with some technical info from Micron. Micron is ahead of Samsung, and supply ATI. Samsung supply Nvidia.

    Here is the link to one of the sites telling the story.

    http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/memory/display/20040421011854.html

    The only part of that story ive realy been follwing closly is the racer to 750 and faster gddr3 rams. I was rather confused when ati the instigator of gddr3 didnt have memory in products yet nvidia did all I can assume is micron took longer to ramp or something.

    er what the hell is x-bit saying.

    http://www.micron.com/news/product/2003-06-11_27457.html

    or more humorously from xbit's own site with the same author.

    Does he not read his own articles?

    The difference might be samples vs full shipments. Samsung is definetly shiping en mass. I have no clue what micron is doing.

    Re: Nv40

    Heh even im not bored enough to follow this topic for more then a week longer;/ While yes high end cards are rather nifty on the one hand its not as if im ever gona be stupid enough to buy one and memory is about as exciting as watching old folks and smells about the same too.


    Now the GAMES these cards will enable THAT is interesting and the games will be whatever they are no matter who "wins" as long as neither of em win all that greatly that is.

    This thread has been pruned a little to bring it BACK ON TOPIC.

    Why is this article popping to the top? Has there been any updates to it? It's happened twice now.

    It's probably still attracting quite a few hits. Not everyone was poised at their PC waiting to read it the instant the NDA lifted, I imagine. :)

    I see. Well I sure was poised anyway!
    Maybe the articles could be separated from the news like R3D or something? That way it stays on top.
    edit- it's already up there... :oops:
