Computex 07: From G.Skill and Kingston

Two memory manufacturers had DDR3 SO-DIMMs on display at their booths at Computex, even though there is no support in the current mobile platforms for DDR3 memory.

G.Skill has even fitted a small heat spreader on its module, although this is unlikely to be needed as DDR3 runs much cooler than DDR2 memory.

Kingston has tested its modules by using an adaptor and pluggin them into a desktop board and was talking about availability early 2008.

Now it's just a matter of Intel releasing a mobile chipset with support for DDR3, as until that happens, these modules are most likely not going to be offered for sale.
