Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Acer Labs Inc (Ali) has licensed 800MHz memory interface technology from Rambus, and will use it to produce chipset products for consumer PCs in 1999. According to ALi president Dr Chin Wu the company sees Rambus technology as a key element in its product strategy, and as "a primary interface to DRAM for PC main memory controllers for 1999 and beyond." With a performance of up to 1.6 gigabits per second of peak bandwidth from a single device, Rambus DRAM devices use conventional cores, fab techniques and memory modules. It’s therefore relatively simple for companies to move production over from conventional DRAM-based systems. "ALi’s record of being able to quickly ramp leading-edge PC chipsets in high volume will help accelerate the proliferation of Rambus memory throughout the PC market," commented David Mooring, VP and general manager of the Rambus PC product division. ®
