Micron Technology announced today that it would support Intel Corporation’s “Lindenhurst” dual processor server chipset with the delivery of functional 256Mb-based registered DDR-II DIMM modules.

Micron is supporting Lindenhurst, which utilizes DDR-II SDRAM memory at 400MHz (PC2-3200), particularly single-rank 256MB, dual-rank 512MB and single-rank 512MB registered DIMM modules. All of these products meet JEDEC specifications for the buffered PC2-3200 memory, a significant increase in performance over the currently approved fastest buffered DDR-I modules functioning at 333MHz (PC2700).

Lindenhurst core logic set will boast the following key features: 800MHz Quad Pumped Bus, PC2-3200 DDR-II SDRAM memory, PCI Express interconnection, direct-connect LAN and storage components. For workstations with Xeon processors Intel will also introduce another new chipset currently code-named as Tumwater with nearly similar feature-set. Both Lindenhurst and Tumwater are expected to support processors with 90nm code-named Nocona core and will be unveiled next year.

Terry Lee, Executive Director of Advanced Technology and Strategic Marketing for Micron’s Computing and Consumer Group said that his company is currently supplying the registered DDR-II memory modules to its major customers for use with the Lindenhurst platform. There is no information whether he meant samples or final parts, though.

Micron Technology is the second company after Elpida (see this news-story) who formally announced its ready-to-go DDR-II products.
