Elpida Memory unveils new products

Memory manufacturer Elpida Memory on Monday announced the availability of two new products that will be incorporated into high-end notebook and desktop computers: a 512-megabit DDR 400 memory chip and a 1GB memory module that contains DDR 400 memory chips.

DDR 400, which is double data rate DRAM (dynamic random access memory) that runs at 400MHz, began to appear in computers earlier this year with the introduction of new chipsets from Intel. DDR 400 is faster than other types of DDR memory. Since it was introduced, memory makers have been trying to cram as many bits as possible into both single chips and modules.
