Exclamation Samsung XDR (eXtreme Data Rate) DRAM!!!!! - WOW I WANT SOME!!

Check this out guys!!!!!!!! :-

Samsung has started mass production of their new 256Mb XDR (eXtreme Data Rate) DRAM. This memory is being dubbed by Samsung as the world's fastest. It's a staggering 10 times faster than DDR-SDRAM memory and five times faster than RDRAM.

Created for multimedia applications, the new memory is geared towards users with thirsty applications that require fast memory to process lots of data.

To transfer data in a stable manner at these incredibly high speeds, Samsung is using Differential Rambus Signal Level technology.

"XDR technology has tremendous potential to become a leading memory solution for today's highest-performance multimedia applications and we're quite enthusiastic about its prospects," said Mueez Deen, marketing director, of Samsung Electronics Co.

Yep, because we all know higher clock speeds mean everything. That's why RDRAM, according to this, is twice as fast as DDR.

The memory is impressive, but I'm hating how it is reported on in all these articles.

XDR @ 3.2GHZ = DDR-II @ 800MHz
XDR @ 6.4GHz = DDR-II @ 1.6GHZ

Still very impressive if they manage to get it out at a crucial time. I just hope they price it more fairly than they did RDRAM, that probably won't happen, though.

I didn't know RDRAM was twice as fast as DDR SDRAM. Sounds like marketing talk to me. If it ain't ain't faster than 2.0ns DDR3, what's the use. Also, I'm sure DDR2 800MHz will probably be cheaper. I'd like to see some competition though.

In my opinion though "ten times faster than DDR-SDRAM". How about some real numbers? I am to understand XDR DRAM can do 64GB/s efficiently?
