Rambus is claiming that its new XDR2 memory interface is five times faster than today's best-in-class GDDR graphics DRam products.
The new interface uses a micro-threaded DRam core and circuit enhancements that enable data rates starting at 8GHz. The first products using the new technology will be on sale by 2007, primarily in high end graphics and network switching.
"We are continually pushing interface technology forward to develop compelling and innovative solutions that meet our customers' needs," said Laura Stark, vice president of the Platform Solutions Group at Rambus.
"XDR2 is our latest iteration of the XDR DRam architecture and will help 3D games and graphics-intensive applications realise the high performance potential that users demand."
