Los Altos, CA - January 23, 2002 - Rambus Inc., the leading provider of high bandwidth chip connection technology, announced today it will demonstrate the first PC running 1200MHz RDRAM® memory at the Platform Conference in San Jose, California. In addition, Rambus will present a comparative analysis of memory solutions. The analysis shows RDRAM is an excellent choice for high bandwidth PCs now and in the future.
1200MHz RDRAM Memory System Demonstration
January 23 - January 24, 2002
Rambus Booth #7
Rambus will demonstrate an overclocked PC with RDRAM Memory running at 1200MHz. Sporting a peak bandwidth of 4.8GB/s, the system will be running popular benchmarks to illustrate both outstanding performance and reliable operation. The RDRAM roadmap includes adding speed bins at 1066 MHz and 1200MHz without changes to the RDRAM design or industry infrastructure. The RDRAM memory components used for the demonstration are devices directly off a high volume 800MHz production line.
3.2+ GB/s Memory Systems - Choices for the future
January 23, 2002 - 1:30pm
Stanford CD Room
With processor speeds rapidly approaching 3GHz, system designers must select memory technologies that can effectively meet memory bandwidth requirements. This presentation will provide a comparative analysis of the system level memory implementation choices faced by designers. Topics include performance, space, cost, and reliability issues. Multiple memory technologies coexist in the market today allowing data driven comparisons to be made.
