Remote control for virtualized desktops

Tom's Hardware has produced a blockbuster article on Rambus -- and it doesn't like what it sees. Reviewer Van Smith explains why poor yields makes Rambus so costly (a whopping 750 per cent more expensive than SDRAM equivalents) and he notes the vendor "misinformation" concerning performance. "It seems to be common practice at Intel and Rambus to unload everything they can find to handicap SDRAM when comparing it with RDRAM," he says. He concludes: "Given Thomas Pabst's latest tests showing that RDRAM actually degrades system performance while doubling the system price, from our vantage point Rambus does not have much to recommend it." ® Tom's Hardware: Dissecting Rambus
