Weekly Platform Trends: The AMD DDR Socket A Platform
With the release of the Athlon 1.3 and 1.33 GHz processors, AMD has yet another weapon in the escalating processor war. AMD is also making waves with their support for DDR memory, and are promoting it as the perfect match for their 266 MHz DDR processors. The AMD DDR platform has also been helped immensely by the large selection of DDR-capable motherboard chipsets. AMD states a figure of "more than 50 DDR-based motherboards from 20 different motherboard manufacturers" which are either available or in development for their Socket A platform, so it looks like a prime area for further exploration.
