Short Take: IBM touts fast memory cards

IBM is offering PC manufacturers new memory cards that are compliant with the PC100 specification, which passes information between main memory and the processor at 100 MHz instead of the 66-MHz clock speed used by the majority of PCs. Volume production is scheduled for August 1998, with prices ranging from $90 for 32MB dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs) to $1,100 for 256MB DIMMs in quantities of 1,000.
