hmmm, delicious......systems are getting so ridiculously crazy really quickly. Next 5 years in graphics will just be amazing.

That is rather crazy. The last 5 years in graphics have been pretty unbelievable. But the next five years, absolutely ridiculous.

Interesting how this thread slipped through the cracks...

The speed gain does look impressive, but RAMBUS has always been way ahead of their time, and they don't know how to properly excecute their technologies. Just look at RDRAM, it rivals todays memory and was introduced back during the SDRAM era, but it never took off because it was ridiculously expensive, and they never extended their platforms.

This is a good innovation, but I personally feel it's going to crash and burn unless RAMBUS pulls a 180.

Yeah pretty much, I think the main killer is that they simply don't make the price so ridiculous. I think this thread wasn't noticed because most people didn't even know what the title meant lol.
