Rambus has announced that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with Intel to evaluate Rambus XDR technology. Currently Intel has no distinct plans for using XDR, but will only evaluate the technology for possible future applications. Rambus will dedicate both technology and design resources for the evaluation in Intel’s laboratory. We will just have to wait and see what the exploring will give birth to, but hopefully not a new RDRAM, or anything even remotely similar. No one wants to relive that.
