256MB PC2100 DDR Memory

modules by Crucial were rare in Malaysia some time ago, with the modules being
bought by enthusiasts who could swallow the huge shipping costs incurred in bringing
the modules back home. Recently, a local computer hardware store, Overclockers
Paradise took the initiative by ordering Crucial memory modules in bulk, thereby
sharing out the cost of shipping among multiple buyers.
took the opportunity to purchase one of the 256MB PC2100 DDR memory modules available
when upgrading from my older KT133A system to an AXP1700+ and Soltek SL75-DRV7
KT266A motherboard a couple of weeks back. The module cost me RM 330 ( USD
86.84 ) at the time.
memory (Double Data Rate) memory is different from the previous generation of
SDRAM. SDRAM has a different pin design for mounting to the motherboard, and thus
obviously cannot be used in motherboards supporting regular SDRAM. Theoretically,
DDR memory modules allow transfer of data twice as fast as SDRAM, though in real
world performance the figures in memory bandwidth do not actually double.
