Taipei, Taiwan - January 16, 2001 - Apacer, a worldwide leader in memory module development and manufacturing, today announced it is working with IBM to accelerate the development and availability of ""double data rate"" (DDR) memory technology through close cooperation and communication with Asian IT manufacturers throughout the region.

Under this relationship, Apacer will coordinate and facilitate customer testing and development of DDR-based IT systems by providing third-party vendors with Apacer memory modules which use IBM 128Mb and 256Mb memory devices. In this process, third-party vendors will be able to evaluate the combined performance and reliability of IBM memory devices and Apacer memory modules.

Apacer memory modules are quickly becoming benchmark standards for many leading IT players. Using Apacer DDR memory modules that incorporate top-quality IBM DDR memory devices, companies can test their motherboards and PC system components to ensure complete compatibility with JEDEC DDR standards.

According to Apacer President Mr. Austin Chen, working with IBM and other top leaders in the industry has made Apacer modules a preferred choice for system and sub-system components suppliers and developers. Using Apacer memory modules as their benchmark standard, IT companies are able to test and modify their systems for optimal DDR compatibility and performance. We are enabling others to join the growing trend for DDR-based products in the coming months.""

IBM has played an active role in the development of DDR device and module memory specifications and their emergence as standards. IBM DDR memory technology provides twice the memory bandwidth of previous memory generations, creating a high-speed communication pipeline between the processor and memory in a computing system, allowing the system to operate more efficiently.

DDR memory is the latest in high-performance memory module technological advances. New-and next generation CPUs running at extremely fast gigahertz speeds require ever-faster memory and sub-system enhancements to keep pace and reduce system performance bottlenecks.

Servers and professional workstations are primary target systems for DDR memory. DDR memory offers twice the data rate bandwidth of conventional PC100 or PC133 SDRAM but at near-compatible pricing structures. DDR memory is particularly well-suited for high-performance servers and workstations which need optimal CPU-memory performance.
