Rambus to nowhere?

— 12:33 AM on March 17, 2000

Van Smith continues his well-researched series of articles slamming Intel's recent plans with a new article over at THG about Rambus DRAM. The article summarizes the history behind RDRAM, explains how the technology works (and how weird it is compared to conventional SDRAM), offers a few benchmarks, and theorizes on why RDRAM has been difficult to produce in volume.

Van is pretty well convinced DDR SDRAM will whup up on RDRAM, despite Intel's best efforts. He may well be right. Personally, I could really use some RDRAM for testing around here, but I'd have to sell both of my kidneys in order to get 128MB of the stuff. I really need to keep one of 'em.

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