“By combining the integrated features and performance of NVIDIA’s nForce2 Platform Processors and the power of DDR400 memory modules, end-users will be provided with a PC experience unlike any other,” said Drew Henry, senior director of platform business at NVIDIA. “Our close collaboration with the leading memory manufacturers, such as Samsung, Hynix, and Micron, has allowed us to architecturally design our dual memory controllers with dedicated circuitry that not only provides the fastest system performance possible, but also delivers the utmost in system stability and memory compatibility—two key attributes that are immensely important in the core-logic space.”
An ideal companion for NVIDIA’s high-performance nForce2 Platform Processors, DDR400 is one of the fastest memory solutions available for PC main memory. Available from various manufacturers in 512MB, 256MB and 128MB densities, NVIDIA’s nForce2 Platform Processors combined with DDR400 offers more than twice the bandwidth than today’s traditional DDR333-based PCs.
“We are pleased with NVIDIA’s decision to optimize their nForce2 Platform Processors for Samsung DDR400 memory,” said Tom Quinn, vice president of marketing, Samsung Semiconductor, Inc. “The powerful pairing of our DDR400 memory modules with NVIDIA's innovative nForce2 Platform Processors will prove to be an alluring combination for end-users who demand the ultimate in features, performance, stability and productivity from their favorite media-rich applications.”
