technology to manufacturing partners, but does not sell components or modules.").
Micron rejected RambusE claims yesterday, saying in a statement that, oRambus failed in the marketplace because of excessive manufacturing costs and minimal RDRAM
provides the high-bandwidth memory and fast access time required for these and other data-intensive applications.
This type of memory boasts higher speeds than PC133 SDRAM and unlike proprietary Rambus RDRAM
, it is an industry standard part.
Also standard are integrated Ultra 160 SCSI and Ultra ATA/100 controllers, 800 MHz ECC RDRAM
memory, and a choice of a 48X Max CD-ROM or 16X DVD-ROM drive.
Also, systems configured with 4GB of RAM using SDRAM are much less expensive than those configured with RDRAM
The enhanced Intel 850E chipset has a dual-channel PC 1066 RDRAM
memory while the Intel 845GE has a 266MHz graphics clock, a 533MHz or 400MHz system bus and DDR333 main memory support.
The RIMM 4200 module integrates two RDRAM
memory channels to deliver 4.2GB/s of memory bandwidth from a single module.
Since late 1996, Intel has been promoting memory from Rambus (called RDRAM
) for use in the newest, fastest PCs.
One problem with Pentium 4 chips was the requirement to use RDRAM
. Rambus dynamic RAM (random access memory) was four times as expensive as SD-RAM (synchronous dynamic random access memory).
