Rambus Inc. in cooperation with Toshiba Corp. and Elpida Memory Inc. has revealed the details of the new XDR DRAM based on its XDR memory interface technology, formerly code-named "Yellowstone." According to Rambus, companies Sony Corp. and Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. have recently licensed the XDR memory interface for utilization in future broadband applications with "Cell."

Initially, the XDR DRAM is anticipated to serve the high-bandwidth needs of consumer, graphics, and networking applications, with eventual applicability for PC main memory, server and mobile systems when these applications require higher levels of bandwidth. XDR DRAM is claimed to provide the cost benefits of mainstream memory while still outperforming low-volume specialty DRAMs.

The product will be offered at 3.2GHz with a roadmap to 6.4GHz and beyond, enabling memory system bandwidths up to 100GBps. It will be available in multiple speed bins, device densities, and device widths. With densities ranging from 256Mb to 8Gb, and device widths ranging from x1 to x32.
