Memory chipmakers Qimonda AG and Samsung Electronics announced that their DDR3 small-outline (SO-DIMM) products have been validated for Intel Corp.'s mobile platform. The validation is a ticket to the notebook market.

While DDR3 memory modules for desktop computers have been around for a while, the SO-DIMM modules have not been validated by Intel. Both Samsung and Qimonda now plan to offer 1Gbyte and 2Gbyte SO-DIMMS with 800- and 1066Mbit/s speeds.

The combination of these modules with Intel's latest Mobile Intel 45 Express chipset platform, tailored for the Centrino 2 processor, will provide higher performance at lower power consumption. The technology allows the design of notebook computers that can work up to an entire working day solely on battery power, said Qimonda chief operating officer Thomas Seifert.

According to Ali Sarabi, Intel manager for industry initiatives and pathfinding, DDR3 will probably be the key memory architecture for several years.
