Press release:  CRUCIAL.COM AND MICRON TECHNOLOGY, INC., OFFER HIGH-QUALITY, LOW-COST PC2100 DDR SDRAM MODULES

Date : 2001-04-03

Meridian, Idaho, April 2, 2001 - Crucial.com, a leading factory-direct
memory upgrade supplier and a division of Micron, today announced the
availability of PC2100 double data rate (DDR) synchronous DRAM (SDRAM)
memory module upgrades. Continuing Crucial\'s commitment to the
price/performance advantage of this next-generation technology, Crucial is
offering these PC2100 DDR SDRAM modules starting at US $60.29 for 128MB.

"The response to our low prices on DDR SDRAM is incredible," said Mike
Bokan, General Manager of Crucial. "Since we first offered PC1600 DDR SDRAM
in July of last year, it has been flying off the shelves. Clearly, Crucial\'s
customers want DDR SDRAM, and our factory-direct model allows us to sell
this new PC2100 DDR SDRAM at prices that make it accessible to anyone who
wants it."

"Micron is working closely with the major original equipment manufacturers
to provide PC2100 DDR SDRAM that is fully compatible with their systems,"
said Jeff Mailloux, Micron\'s Director of Marketing, Computing and Consumer
Group. "Now that DDR SDRAM chipsets are becoming more widely available for a
variety of processors, we expect DDR SDRAM usage to increase rapidly in both
desktops and servers, with additional applications following shortly
thereafter. Because DDR SDRAM is an evolutionary technology based on SDRAM,
we also anticipate that DDR SDRAM will continue to move toward price parity
with SDRAM."

Crucial.com is the Web site of Crucial Technology, a division of Micron
Semiconductor Products, Inc., which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Micron
Technology, Inc. Crucial sells memory upgrade modules factory direct from
Micron Technology, Inc., and offers over 60,000 upgrades for more than
