Gigabyte is introducing a new adapter this week that allows you to connect outdated DDR memories to a motherboard made by it, including mounts that are suitable for modern DDR2 memories. The purpose of the new adapter is to make the transition to state-of-the-art motherboards easier for computer owners who do not want to "throw away" their normal DDR memories.
According to current information, the adapter will only fit the Gigabyte GA-PT880Pro board. This board is a strange hybrid creature, which also features an AGP slot and a PCIe slot, also two DDR slots and also two DDR2 slots. The adapter will allow users who want to work with four modules of DDR memory on the board. The GA-PT880Pro is based on VIA's PT880 PRO chipset and supports Intel processors for the 775 chassis. There are no details about the date of release of the board or its market price.
It should be noted that according to the images on the network, the adapter does not have electronic logic on it, which is surprising because DDR2 memory requires 1.8V power while DDR memory requires an 2.6V voltage average. In addition, DDR2 memory modules include 240 pins while standard DDR memory includes only 184 pins.
