Qimonda, a company that was recently formed from Infineon’s DRAM business unit, today said that it was selected by Microsoft as a “preferred, comprehensive supplier of graphics RAM” for the Xbox 360 game console. The company said that it will ship a “significant share” of the console’s 512Mbit GDDR3 memory demand.
“We are very proud to be selected by Microsoft and to successfully qualify our high-end GDDR3 graphics RAM for the Xbox 360 game console,” said Thomas Seifert, member of the management board of Qimonda. “This is a major milestone reflecting the success of an important part of our product diversification strategy and continuously growing our share in the graphics memory market.”
The modules supplied to Microsoft are built in a 16Mbit x 32 configuration for a total capacity of 512 MB. Qimonda claims that the devices achieve a data bandwidth of up to 44.8 Gbit/s.
