Volgens dit bericht bij EBNews hebben de Samsung Rambus RDRAM chips met succes de "Intel validation tests" voltooid. Dit zou kunnen betekenen dat de Rambus RDRAMs binnenkort in grote aantallen leverbaar zullen zijn:
In January, Samsung began volume production of its 72- and 144-Mbit RDRAMs. The company said it is now shipping the memories to a number of computer manufacturers around the world. The company predicted that its RDRAM will be used in commercially available Pentium III-based desktop PCs, starting in September.
The Korean memory maker said will increase production of 128- and 144-Mbit RDRAMs to about five million a month in the second half of 1999. At that time, Samsung said it will shift its focus from synchronous DRAMs to RDRAMs.
