The EET is reporting that Intel has gotten a working DDR3 prototype chip from Infineon. Details on the device are scarce, but it is known that it's not fully compliant with the JEDEC DDR3 spec. This announcement of a working DDR3 prototype from Infineon comes about five months after Samsung announced the world's first DDR3 memory, which was a 512Mbit, 800 MHz part.
Infineon had formerly stated that they expected to start sampling DDR3 chips to their customers in late 2006, but the current word is that they expect to go into full DDR3 production at that point.
