Perhaps one of the PC manufacturers which has suffered the most from Intel's decision to withdraw its i820 board at the last minute is Dell. It was very, very ready to roll until the very last minute. But wait. It used to have a page all about how wonderful Rambus was and a reader has sent us a copy. The page was here but it's Web-brushed out, to be replaced by this page here which says how wonderful SDRAM is. The cyber-brushed missing page said, pre-Caminogate, that RDRAM delivered a 166 per cent overall increase in system performance compared to existing 100MHz SDRAM. That has to be disputed. Most hardware sites that got their mitts on 820+Rambus agreed its performance delta compared to BX boards was only a few percentage points. It also says, err...used to say, that "RDRAM delivers 1.6Gb/second bandwidth compared to 800Mb/s with SDRAM. In other words, 64MB of RDRAM would have the equivalent bandwidth of 128MB of SDRAM." No. Dell also had a diagram which claimed that SDRAM was first in, first out, while RDRAM memory required no waiting in line. No. Rambus has a serial like interface and SDRAM is parallel. We are still waiting to hear when the i820, Phoenix like, arises from Caminogate... ®
