When do you think we will see 1ghz imacs with DDR memory?

    Well put simply I would be thinking well after Apple actually put DDR in their powermacs and processor speeds of the aformentioned computers get bumped...

    Maybe mid to late next year. Once the Power Macs get it, and the low end is at least 1ghz. Maybe at the same time the DDR powermacs get their first update.

    More like QDR.

    I am not seeing how this Triple Data Rate RAM would work?

    QDR and DDR II (yes, they are competing standards) arn't due until the end of this year.

    TDR would work by having one send on the rise, one on the fall and one at the peak, burning out the motherboard

    Before any iMac DDR update occurs, the Power Mac chipset has to appear first (by at least a few months!). However, the current iMac uses a proprietory Apple chip, Pangea.

    Possible Timeline:

    1998: Beige G3 Chipset; iMac Chipset

    1999: G3/G4 chipsets, Pangea chip (iMac)

    2000: Discovery chip (G4)

    2002: Discovery II chip (G4)

    2003: Power4-Desktop chipset; Pangea II chip

    I think the iMac One Gig will be the same implementation than the current Dual Gig : SDR RAM, maybe 133 Mhz Bus, maybe L3 cache...
