    I think DDR is a old technology they should go for TDR(triple data rate) (my concept) Ram. It will be much faster than DDR.

    If they double the data transfer rate of RDRam that is also better not bad.But TDR tec. will much superior.If they can make it cheap.

    I heard...

    that Intel is doing something like QDR (Quadra Data Rate), seems like intel are planning on four-folding their bus rate

    Surely RDRAM is already effectively QDR. = Single data rate Quad Pumped. hence the 400Mhz FSB of P4's ?

    Dell to dump RDRAM
    Tuesday, March 26 2002 News www.3dspotlight.com
    by Julio @ 11:43 AM - [Comments]

    SOURCES CLOSE to Dell claimed that after this year, the PC giant will not offer PCs using Rambus RDRAM memory.
    The reliable source claims to have seen roadmaps indicating that Dell is to drop the memory type during 2003 – and if this is correct, it marks the end of Rambus as a big time player in the PC market.

    Intel has indicated now for well over nine months that Rambus RDRAM is a "niche" memory type for PCs, showing that when it wants to, the chip giant can be as ruthless as ever it was in the past.

    Eddy,

    What kind of system is your new one. You say that all your RIMM slots are full, this may not be true. It is my understanding that RAMBUS has to be installed in pairs and any empty slot has to be occupied as well. Intel ships a "spacer" or whatever its called, to install in the empty slot. Look at it carefully, if it doesn't look like the other RIMMS, you may be able to install more ram.
