Intel ‘to dump Rambus completely’

Relax, its a rumour

A few days back we wrote that Intel looked certain to phase out Rambus support across the spectrum by the middle of next year, except for the high-end workstation segment.

Now an ex-Intel employee informs us that his chums, still beavering away at the Great Stan, tell him that Rambus is going to be completely out of the picture before Q2 next year.

Of course, this remains unsubstantiated by Chipzilla itself, which never comments on sensitive topics such as this, but Intel and Rambus have been having intimate chats recently and the chip behemoth already has DDR SDRAM chipsets in the pipeline.

As they say: Watch this space. ®
