Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Presentations from market research company Semico and Hyundai have cast further doubts over the future of Rambus memory as a successful PC platform. At this week's Platform 2000 conference, Sherry Garber, a senior vice president at Semico Research, claimed that Rambus would only achieve two per cent of the market during this year, and that by the year 2004, that will shrink to a minority share of 0.1 per cent, along with EDO RAM. Slides shown by Semico give DDR memory a 57.4 per cent share of the market in 2004, with SDRAM still maintaining a 42.4 per cent of the market. At the same conference, Fahrad Tabrizi, VP of strategic marketing and product planning at memory major Hyundai, left little doubt that his company was of the same opinion about DDR and about Rambus. His presentation started with a slide titled "DDR moves forward aggressively". At a panel meeting later in the conference, only Samsung was still maintaining that Rambus would achieve any kind of dominance in the marketplace. ® Related Stories Rambus offers cheapo shares to Hyundai Rambus yields drop to 10 per cent, disties claim Analysis: AMD, Via invited to post-Rambus gig
