Rambus is known by many as a "patent hooligan", but technically has two brushes in memory.
Today, Rambus announced the second generation of DDR5 RCD (Registered Clock Driver) chips, the industry's first to achieve a frequency of 5600MHz, up to 17% faster than the first generation's 4800MHz.
The DDR5 memory standard specification starts at 4800MHz, as does the Intel 12This support specification, but in fact this is clearly not enough, the major memory manufacturers of new products, except for some basic models, most will be located at 6400MHz or higher.
However, Rambus' two generations of RCD drives are not for desktops, notebooks DDR5 DIMM/SO-DIMM, but for DDR5 RDIMM in the server space, improving performance while improving performance.It further reduces latency, power consumption, and optimizes timing.
DDR5 RIDMM, LRDIMM server memory is addedData Buffer (DB), Registered Clock Drive (RCD), compared to UDIMM is availableHigher bandwidth, greater performance, and reduced CPU processor burden, improving signal integrity of instruction and address buses, which also helps to provide greater capacity and frequency than the DDR4.
Rambus' second-generation DDR5 RCD has been piloted and made available to major memory module manufacturers.
