    Jury will find for the plaintiff (Rambus)

    So you are saying that Intel has admitted lying to the world in 2001 when this came out, and specifically to the multitudes of technology companies attending the 2001 Intel Forum for whom this document was created.

    Please reproduce a quote from a high-level Intel executive to corroborate your contention. You can't, and I don't think the jury would buy that explanation either.

    Intel intended Rambus for it's mainstream memory for several generations of their chipsets as this document indicates.

      During the trial, it was discovered that Intel had an internal roadmap which was moving away from RDRAM, and was forced to display an external roadmap due to arbitration while trying to cut ties with Ramscam.

      I thought you were paying attention to the trial, or are you only looking for facts which bolster your beliefs?

      • You mischaracterize what "Intel said." During the trial, the cartel produced two former low level Intel employees who spoke of an internal Intel roadmap. Intel is a very large organization with a lot of employees, not all of whom have the same opinions about techology and the way Intel should go. Just because two low level former employees did not like Rambus and imagine that Intel was lying to the world about it's intentions surrounding RDRAM doesn't make it so.

        I just provided what "Intel said", from the very top of the organization. Want more? Here's what Pat Gelsinger, Intel's former VP of Desktop Products said at the 2000 Intel Developer Forum:

        "We're not changing our memory strategy. We need a next generation technology and the best way to accomplish that is RDRAM (Rambus memory). He said that Intel was incorporating two channels of Rambus memory into its future chipsets to emphasise that. "Our roadmap is not very different from what it was before," he said. "We'll ship multi millions of i820 [chipsets] in the next quarter, and some of these will be in two + two configurations, mixing synchronous memory and Rambus memory." That confirms our earlier story of a new rev of Caminogate which combines the two disparate memory standards. He said: "We do expect that the launch of RDRAM into the value sector will be longer and slower than we thought." The introduction of technology such as Willamette needed two channels of such memory to be able to deliver speeds in excess of 3GHz per second, he said. "We are not deploying or building products that use DDR in the mobile or desktop space. It [DDR] is too late, too little, it doesn't work and it doesn't fit in the desktop,"
