Memory manufacturers from Bangkok to Timbuktu are now readying Rambus RIMMs in preparation for the expected spate of Intel motherboards that will support them. Over the last two weeks, dealers and distributors worldwide have complained that although the i820 Vancouver board, as well as the i840 Outrigger board are supposed to be ready, it has been impossible to find them in the channel. The OR840 now seems to be shipping in some quantities, although VC820s are still hard to source. However, sources close to Intel say that the mobos are now nearly ready to ship in volume, and it is likely they will see the light of day as the chip giant makes its first bout of price cuts on Coppermine parts on the 12th of December next. Memory manufacturers have begun to ramp up their RIMM production to match this date. If anything were to go wrong with the i820 Rambus motherboard at this stage, all hell would break loose, one module manufacturer told The Register towards the end of next week. The manufacturer, who wished to stay anonymous, said that the delays had, at least, had the effect of shaking the Rambus RIMM market up. A delay in investing in the expensive Rambus test equipment meant that some manufacturers had now given up the ghost on the future shape of memory technology. ®
