Rambus prepping 1TB/sec computer memory

11/28, 2:15pm

Rambus Terabyte Initiative

Memory maker Rambus today unveiled its Terabyte Bandwidth Initiative, a new effort to cross a symbolic barrier for computer memory speed. The plan will see a new form of RAM that can pass 32 bits of data in one clock cycle versus the two bits of today's memory and splits the signaling between data and commands or memory addressing. The net effect is to provide 16 gigabits per second of bandwidth with a single 500MHz memory chip -- about 16 times the performance of today's DDR2 memory standard at the same clock rate.
