AMD to forgo FB-DIMM adoption?

— 11:30 AM on September 15, 2006

Word seeped out last week that Intel had scrapped support for FB-DIMM memory from 90% of its server roadmap for 2008. The move was reportedly due to the advent of microbuffers for registered DIMMs, which are said to offer some of the advantages of FB-DIMMs without the added cost or power consumption. Going by a new report by The Inquirer, AMD might have now taken a similar path. A leaked slide posted by Hong Kong site HKEPC back in June said the company planned to implement support for FB-DIMMs in 2008 after prices for the memory had time to settle down. However, The Inq now says the memory standard has been wiped clean from AMD's 2008 roadmap.
