I saw the article was trying to be optimistic about the Rambus tech since it is so fast, but low bandwidth, hinting it may be good for the future

well what they learn about fast memory should be applied to high bandwidth but then it wouldnt be Rambus anymore would it ? I read a bit about all that patent technology and how Rambus want to clean up "borrowing" others ideas to patent them - they are pretending they are in it for long term payoff of developing good memory for human race etc but I dont believe it. They are in a race alright and they are cheating, but they are still losing, like Dick Dastardly and Muttley. IMHO its got something to do with directorships. My hypothesis is that the directors of Rambus and Intel have some mutually beneficial deal going so they dont mind sinking the business as long as they get fat payoffs from the Rambus & Intel coop, the shareholders are getting shafted.

Strikes me that PC RAM is just going to up its frequency and maintain the high bandwidth and is inevitably going to stomp all over Rambus in the not too distant future unless Rambus come up with higher bandwidth.

Even if they do, at that price noone with any sense of a budget wants to know, I know I certainly didnt when building. If the i815e hadnt turned up in Asus's CUSL2 board I would have gone AMD because of lower PC133 memory costs, even Mushkins top quality CAS3 for Athlon is way less than Rambus. Its completely unrealistic since Rambus performance is not so much better even in the things it is good at.......

hmmm I better go and take a cold shower I am getting upset again
