Today Samsung announced it will stop production of Rambus chips. The Sega Dreamcast uses Rambus chips. Possible no Dreamcasts for Xmas concidering Samsung was the only Rambus manufacturer making chips. Lokk for a big drop in Intel also.
interesting. I was nearly ready to pull the trigger mid-last week on RMBS and decided NOT too....lucky call. Intel really screwing 'em it sems. I think many RMBS chips are already inventoried, not sure what outcomes re Dreamcast system. That wouold sure hurt them and help SNE. Don't know the technology enough to predict. I think you're right....should cost Intel shareholders too.
Intel has been way down - don't know what type of chip Rambus uses, but you may want to take a look at Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) Another great stock. Not sure if this is the same chip they make as Rambus. (audio/video kinda stuff)
