Hardware Central heeft een artikeltje gepost waarin zij de voor en nadelen van Rambus bespreken. De argumenten die genoemd worden komen over het algemeen overeen met die uit het Tom's Hardware Guide artikel over de nadelen van Rambus:
All things considered, we do believe RDRAM is a workable technology which may have arrived too soon for its own good. RDRAM is earning rather a poor reputation as a result of its marriage to i820, a reputation we feel is somewhat unfair. And with Willamette’s release should come an entirely new dimension of RDRAM performance, hopefully enough to alleviate any past concerns.
In summary, there are definite and obvious hurdles that MUST be overcome, but if prices can drop, yields can improve and Intel can return with a high-performance chipset release, we see no reason why RDRAM shouldn’t flourish. But can Intel and Rambus really overcome those challenges? So we’re leaving you with the same conclusion as last time--it's just too early to tell.
