Subject: Processors | March 15, 2004 - 02:38 AM | Ron Goldin
Here is an ongoing article from Sudhina in regards to the Rambus fiasco, what happened, where it went, how it got there, and where it might be going.
In Part I of this series we discussed the history of Rambus's partnership with Intel (and the disastrous consequences of 1999 / 2000). Part II will focus on the terms of the 1997 contract between Intel and Rambus, the effect of those terms, and why RDRAM failed in the marketplace. Part III will discuss the Rambus lawsuits (both those initiated by and against the company) while Part IV discusses the future of RDRAM technology.
