The Rambus technology addresses one of the key problems in speeding up computer systems: Memory chips operate significantly slower than microprocessors. That means the faster microprocessors are often waiting to read or write data to and from the memory chip, and speeding up the microprocessor only goes so far in improving overall system performance.

What Rambus has developed is a protocol for memory and processor chips to send data between each other at very fast speeds. Rambus licenses the technology to chip- and memory-makers that built it inside the integrated circuits in their own products.

Rambus' Direct RDRAM technology enables peak speeds of 1.6GB/sec. That's twice as fast as the 800MB/sec peak speed of today's fastest memory technology, synchronous DRAM (SDRAM). In addition, because of the way Rambus memory chips (RDRAMs) are designed, the Rambus design comes closer to reaching that peak performance in practice.

Why is the industry moving from today's DRAM technology to RDRAM? Constrained by the laws of physics, current DRAM just can't run much faster or send data through a pipeline that's much wider.

RDRAM, on the other hand, runs eight times faster than current high-speed DRAM by imposing tight constraints on memory connection hardware.

  • Highest sustained bandwidth per DRAM device
    - 1.6GB/s sustained data transfer rate Separate control and data buses for maximized efficiency
    - Separate row and column control buses for easy scheduling and highest performance
    - 32 banks: four transactions can take place simultaneously at full bandwidth data rates
    Low latency features
    - Write buffer to reduce read latency
    - 3 precharge mechanisms for controller flexibility
    - Interleaved transactions
    Advanced power management:
    - Multiple low power states allows flexibility in power consumption versus time to transition to active state
    - Power-down self-refresh
