The transition to next-generation DDR3 memory will happen in similarly conservative way compared to not very aggressive transition to DDR2, according to a news-story filed by a web-site. The first personal computer (PC) platforms supporting the new memory technology will see the light of the day in the second half of 2007, but the transition will take about two years.

DDR3 will be supported by Intel sometime in the second half of 2007 and will coexist with DDR2 for more than a year, TG Daily web-site reported, a plan which have always been present. The next-generation memory will be introduced at 800MHz speed-bin, but will reportedly “most likely” reach 1333MHz by 2009, when the transition to the new memory type is completed for Intel Corp.

A lot of memory chip makers, including Elpida, Infineon and Samsung have already developed DDR3 chips and modules and even have submitted them for qualification by clients. Perhaps, some chipset designers may adopt the DDR3 even earlier than Intel, but judging by the transition to DDR2, such scenario is not high. However, the new memory type may be used in non-PC applications.

Memory market research company iSuppli expected DDR3 DRAM products to replace their predecessor DDR2 as the main volume product in 2008. iSuppli forcasts a DDR3 market share of 55% the same year. IDC predicted that the first DDR3 memory will be commercially sold in 2006, whereas in 2009 market share of DDR3 will be 65%.
