RDRAM luvin cheap?

— 9:43 PM on March 2, 2000

You know if you had the option between ye olde SDRAM setup and RDRAM you'd jump on RDRAM. Unfortunately, RDRAM goes for more than six times the price of an equivalent SDRAM DIMM. Ouch! The day may come sooner than you think when you can actually afford RDRAM. A company called Tessera announced on Tuesday that it has developed a new packaging process which promises to be more than 50% cheaper than older methods of packaging RDRAM and other ICs (other high-speed memory like DDR SDRAM, CPUs etc). This could mean you will be seeing RDRAM in more electronics and could even possibly afford to build a system with it in the not-too-distant future.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
