Rambus enters the GPU arena with AMD FirePro RG220
It is no secret that Rambus wanted to enter the GPU market - the company pitched its high-performance since its arrival on the market, yet it failed to take off - even though RDRAM itself has properties that GPUs would benefit from [narrow interface, high transfer rate].
After the licensing fiasco with Intel and subsequent litigations in regards to DRAM patents which exist to this date [such as the case against nVidia], RDRAM is now a system memory for PlayStation 3, numerous PC-over-IP solutions and the like.
Enter FirePro RG200 [RG stands for Remote Graphics]. AMD's latest professional graphics card comes with quite an unique set of features, which include mixing the RV711 GPU [not the Evergreen DirectX 11 family], RealTek's 10/100/1000 3-Port Gigabit Switch, PLX PCIe Bridge chip and PCoIP Comp/Tx controller. Memory is from one side 512MB of GDDR memory for the GPU and yrs, RDRAM memory for the PC-over-IP controller.
