Qimonda DDR3 Modules Validated on Upcoming Intel High-End Desktop Platform; Industry Transition to DDR3 Memory Accelerates with Latest Technology Release

MUNICH, Germany—(BUSINESS WIRE)—September 25, 2008— Qimonda AG, a leading manufacturer of memory products, announced validation of its 1 GB and 2 GB DDR3 Unbuffered Dual In-Line Memory Modules (UDIMMs) on the upcoming Intel® Core i7 processor and Intel® X58 Express chipset, bringing the exceptional thermal efficiency and performance of Qimonda memory to this next generation high-end desktop platform.

Validation of the DDR3 1067 non-ECC UDIMMs for the new Intel Core i7 platform being released later this year reinforces Qimondas leadership role in the industry transition to a memory standard that provides up to 30% improvement in power usage while offering up to twice the data rate of DDR2 memories. Qimonda DDR3 components were initially released more than one year ago, and Qimonda DDR3 modules have now been validated on multiple Intel platforms.

With an integrated controller supporting up to three memory modules per channel, the Intel Core i7 microarchitecture fully leverages the performance of DDR3 memory to deliver exceptional memory bandwidth while reducing memory latency. DDR3 is also the first memory designed for operation at 1.5V, making it an ideal match to the power efficient Intel processor and chipset architectures.

Weve worked closely with Intel to validate DDR3 modules for application in Core architecture systems across the full range of supported platforms, said Michael Buckermann, Vice President of Business Unit Computing, Qimonda AG. We are very pleased to be able to offer these solutions as part of the industrys broadest portfolio of DDR3 DIMMs from 800 to 1866 speed grades.

Qimonda has been a valued partner in enabling Core microarchitecture platforms and participating in our program for evaluation of memory energy efficiency and performance, said Paul Fahey, Director of Platform Memory Operations, Intel Corporation. The company has consistently met the requirements for power use and thermal performance across all platforms, and weve selected Qimonda DIMMs for several channel partner and media evaluation programs in our platform roll-outs this year.
