Oh bring back Rambus *ntel!
Tomshardware Ram Roadmaps
Looks like Samsung at least are going to keep making Rdram...
All the way to PC1200 until 2005 and beyond :rolleyes:
Is that a mis-type Arris ? 1200 ? arent we going to like 2700 and beyond ?? Or am I reading it wrong like DDR 266 ? IE DDR1200 ??
And Uncleel, if rambus is so great, why did Intel abandon it ? (AMD is the answer) (evil grin)
Nope I was referring to RDRam which is set to go to PC1200 in the future. DDR SDram is at 333DDR (2.7gb per second theoretical hence the 2700 number). Next step (with Via and SiS already showing 400DDR motherboards at CeBIT - Check the news forum for details) is 400DDR and then from there upwards.
Plus I had read that AMD looked towards Rambus for use with the Hammer. From what I can tell its going for DDR but you never know.
I always said RAMBUS was the way to go with P4's despite it's price.

Yeah if I have learned anything in this business is the only certainty is the uncertanty.
i feel all warm and tingly inside, finally more people who are pro-rambus, and the debate is finally swinging around...yay
Sorry, I am not pro Rambus. But I could be convinced if AMD where to ever adopt it.....but for now...I am staying with DDR, and if hammer comes out and stays with DDR, so do I.
dont' be sorry, everyone has a right to their own opinion.
i just never agreed with why people were so for ddr when rdram offered the better performance. even now more so i don't agree with the prices being so close
Rambus's future is going to be interesting with Dell dropping Rambus at the end of this year. If you want a Dell I guess it's gonna be DDR or SDRAM. Why someone would by a P-4 with SDRAM is beyond me. However, I know the average consumer has no clue. Too bad.
