It’s Rambus week here in Damage Labs! We’re following the Rambus-Infineon trial while running a bunch of Linpack tests on a Pentium 4. Occasionally, I take time out to stalk Jack Robertson of EBNews.

Jack’s latest work—which he typed up while eating a donut and drinking coffee in a bathrobe from his home office this afternoon, not that I’d have any way of knowing that—concerns the royalties Rambus charges to DRAM manufacturers. It seems Rambus has made good on its promise to price DDR royalties high enough to give RDRAM a competitive edge. The trial has brought to light the fact that Rambus royalties on DDR SDRAM are 3.5%. Compare that to 0.75% for SDRAM and 1-2% on RDRAM. Folks, that’s a lotta wampum for a license on a technology they probably didn’t invent.
