Goh, toch nog een klein beetje positief nieuws van het Rampbus front: Samsung gaat de produktie van Rambus DRAM's tussen nu en februari verdubbelen. Hier de info van EETimes:
Samsung had stopped ramping production of Rambus memories in October after Intel delayed its 820 chip set, which was to support the use of Rambus memories. But the company resumed Rambus production last month. "Many customers came to us because not many companies can supply [Rambus memories]", said Yoon-Woo Lee, president and chief executive officer of Samsung's semiconductor unit. Although Samsung is building about one million 128/144-Mbit Rambus chips per month, there is still a big market shortage of the devices, he said.
Samsung currently plans to ramp production to 2 million Rambus chips per month by February, Lee said during a wide-ranging interview here with U.S. journalists and analysts. Lee said he expects Rambus devices will make up about 20 percent of Samsung's DRAM revenue next year, even though he expects Rambus will account for only about 10 percent of the overall DRAM market.
Around 70 percent of Samsung's DRAM revenue next year will come from synchronous and EDO parts, including PC133, with the other 10 percent coming from DDR memories, Lee said.
