Isnt it faster than DDR (at least until ddr-II comes out or something). And 800mhz is a little cheaper than pc3200+ ... I heard somewhere that dell is going to stop using rdram next year. If its better (at least in some points) , why not keep it?

It needs to be used in pairs also, limiting expansion options.
The main word here with RDRAM is Latency, where DDR really kills it performance wise, and why ram with lower bandwidth can still keep pace.
Like it or not, dual channel DDR is the final nail in the RDRAM coffin....
metra said:Its not more expensive - theyre about the same. Intel doesnt suck. And we dont know if it will be worse or better. I dont think anyone has a comparison of ddr-II and 1200mhz rdram...
CrystalMethod said:Guys, could you please keep the "Intel sucks" comments in Gripes and Moans? It really doesn't have any place in here.
i am just stating that intel boards do not work to oc. that is because the user can't change anything but memory timings in most.
