Intel in bed with Rambus... again
They've done it again. Intel has gone and signed up with Rambus. C|Net has the scoop on the new five-year deal.
The new agreement, which supercedes the 1996 Intel-Rambus licensing agreement, grants Intel access to Rambus' entire patent portfolio. Intel has agreed to grant licenses for patents Rambus needs to build memory interface technology and also to pay unspecified royalties to Rambus.
Maybe this means that Brookdale DDR will come out early, but then again, probably not.
