According to Rambus, Samsung
to offer a 1 Gigabit XDR DRAM memory
device. As a result of this development, Rambus' technology may finally start
to see more widespread availability. The XDR memory architecture is interesting
because it achieves performance that is higher than would be attainable by
current mainstream memory modules.
"Samsung's market leadership means system manufacturers
can be assured of a reliable supply of our XDR DRAM," said Sharon Holt,
senior vice president of Licensing and Marketing at Rambus. "With XDR
memory's world-leading bandwidth performance, designers can meet their system
requirements with fewer devices and greater power efficiency."
Rambus' memory offers excellent bandwidth and operates on
less power while still meeting the demands of gaming, computing and consumer
electronics applications. So far, only a 1Gb XDR DRAM module has been
announced. However, it's possible Samsung could consider manufacturing other
models as well.
