Micron starts shipping 1-Gbit DDR2 DRAMs

This is a bit early, but gives them some time to get the bugs out if there are any!
BOISE, Idaho — Micron Technology Inc. claimed Thursday (Oct. 23) that it is the first company to have shipped 1-Gbit capacity DDR2 style synchronous DRAMs to customers.
Micron's 1.8-V 1-Gbit DDR2-400 and DDR2-533 SDRAM components are packaged in FBGA packaging and are fabricated using a 0.11-micron manufacturing process, the company said.

"Micron's early demonstration of 1-Gbit DDR2 is another major industry milestone for us," Terry Lee, an executive director of advanced technology and strategic marketing at Micron, said in a statement.

In August Micron rival Hynix Semiconductor Inc. said it would be in a position to sell 1-Gbit DDR2 DRAM chips early in 2004

I'd take this announcement with a grain of salt... Micron is doing 256Mb DDRII IC's first. I've not even heard mention of 512Mb DDRII IC's any time in the near future, much less 1Gb...
