7/31/2000: Rambus makes sure that his memoirs already overcome the GHz
The controversial company of development of technologies for memory Rambus Inc has just announced that, together with his principal associates (between whom they emphasize companies like Samsung, Hyundai and Toshiba), it has just achieved the first modules of memory DRAM that overcome the barrier of the GHz (1.000 MHz).
1.066 MHz are the reached exact number , although in fact this number we might say that there are "Equivalent MHz", physically the modules work to 533 MHz (that in any case it is not small), and they allow a band of 2,1 GB / century Of course, it is a question of modules RIMM of memory RDRAM (Rambus-DRAM), which suppose a small step pass for this technology, which maximum exponent till now there were the modules RIMM PC800, of 800 MHz and 1,6 GB / century
The date of arrival for the market of this technology is waited in some moment of the year 2001, although many barriers will have still to excel themselves, so much technological (most of the manufacturers has found serious difficulties to make the memoirs PC800, motive of his high price and of the presence of cheaper alternatives as PC600 and PC700) like TV/radio commercials (for the need to pay royaltys to Rambus and the scarce acceptance of his memoirs for manufacturers and public).
