(EDIT) Deneb IS supporting both DDR2 and DDR3 on 1 chip!

Postby GI-JOE » Tue Oct 07, 2008 6:12 am

I've been reading around trying to see if I could get a clear answer on this, and it appears that deneb will come in a AM2+ or AM3 package separately. Unlike the rumors that I heard that deneb would have both ddr2 and ddr3 memory controllers therefore making them swappable between AM2+ and AM3 sockets...........

Anyone else bummed by this? :|

I was playing on building a low power AM2+ system with a decent upgrade path, but now I'm not so sure about it.............

Edit: GOOD NEWS!!

So does anyone have any concrete evidence stating otherwise? Like I said, most of my previous post is based on rumors. ](*,)

Based on my research, it appears that the first 2 processors released will be based on AM2+ only. The processors after that are rumored to have both DDR2 and DDR3 memory controllers. Just posting this in case someone else is looking for this info.
