DDR3 all along
The chipset that makes up the
backbone of AMD's Leo platform, codenamed RD890, was supposed to come in Q4 2009 and
with him also the Leo platform.
Now it looks like that the platform got a bit
delayed and that Leo won't be arriving before early 2010. Leo is all
about 45nm processors that will be arriving in 2010 and the ones that have
already been announced. It supports AM3 socket, DDR3 memory, HT 3.0 and
Crossfire multi GPU technology.
The other chipset that qualifies for the Leo
platform is the RS880, a new IGP chipset that is also scheduled for early
2010 arrival. Both chipsets will interconnect with the new SB850 Southbridge.
