Intel to offer SDRAM for Pentium 4

In a move that raises questions about the future of memory maker Rambus, Intel has confirmed that it will offer standard SDRAM memory support for its forthcoming Pentium 4 chip, and that it is “investigating” a possible DDR option for the chipset.

The Santa Clara, Calif. chipmaker – which had previously only publicly stated support for RDRAM on the Pentium 4 – said the addition of SDRAM will allow PC makers to deliver Pentium 4 systems at lower, “mainstream” prices. Company officials, however, claimed the more expensive RDRAM will continue to be the memory of choice for the performance desktop.
