VIA kiest voor de PC133 standaard en zegt dat Direct Rambus een te dure oplossing is, aldus dit artikel van The Register:
Dean Hays, director of marketing at Via, said: "We're working with a number of memory companies to develop the PC133 spec. Intel took the lead on PC100 but VIA is taking a lead on developing PC133. We intend to create a specification for it."
He said that VIA had to show support for Direct Rambus because of the weight of industry support behind it. But, he added, systems using Direct Rambus were likely to cost too much and the PC industry would put its weight behind PC133.
"Just about every memory vendor we've talked to in the world has yield on PC 133," he said. He suggested that yield on Direct Rambus might be indifferent.
