More Than 300 RDRAM-based Systems Available Worldwide(July 25, 2001)
The list of more than 300 RDRAM-based systems includes desktop PCs, workstations, servers, games consoles, HDTVs, set top boxes, displays, network attached storage servers, switches and routers. Current RDRAM devices with data rate transfers of up to 800MHz enable a single RDRAM Channel to achieve bandwidth of up to 1.6 gigabytes per second. Rambus technology allows architects the flexibility to incorporate multiple channels to scale memory capacity and bandwidth to meet system requirements. Intel 840, Intel 850 and Intel 860 chipset-based desktop and PC workstations and Sony's PlayStation(R) 2 utilize two RDRAM Channels for a total of 3.2 gigabytes per second of memory bandwidth.
Rambus' architecture easily accommodates future performance enhancements due to its unique scalability. With Rambus technology, system designs can be optimized to meet the needs of a broad range of platforms.
