RAMBUS
by rob
Rambus Dynamic Random Access Memory (RDRAM) is a new high-speed memory module. Rambus is intended to replace the current standard - dynamic random access memory (DRAM). The technology that provides the faster data rates is the use of a special high-speed data bus called the Rambus channel. This channel provides a two-byte (16 bit) bus rather than DRAM's 8-bit bus. RDRAM memory chips (Rambus in-line memory modules or RIMMs) work in parallel to achieve a data rate of 800 MHz, or 1,600 MBps.
