Is Rambus back on Intel?s radar?

Will at least explore the possibilities of XDR


Intel has announced a signed Memorandum of Understanding with Rambus to explore the possible applications of its XDR memory technology.

While no specifics were announced it is obvious that Intel needs to makes sure that all its bases are covered where memory technology is concerned, and XDR from Rambus does offer some interesting concepts that might be useful in a variety of projects that Intel has in development moving forward.

The last time that Intel worked with Rambus, it received a large backlash from consumers that found the technology expensive and offering little advantage over the competing DDR technology of the time. Rambus’s XDR technology does offer some advancements that might put it back on the playing field with Intel again.

While the news might trouble some consumers, it is obvious that a major break out is necessary in memory technology and XDR could be part of that future.
