Come on Rambus, just realize that you failed. And it was years ago.  Why are you trying to go after the companies that survived? DDR was cheaper and succeeded by DDR2. Go suck one.

It'd be nice to see Rambus actually release a competitive product instead of suing companies that are...

And?

 Rambus was an expensive piece of hardware that only the rich (now only CEO's) could afford. Besides it wasn't compatible with any other platform except intel's crap. I was glad to see them go.

Man, your nuts. While RAMBUS was a huge mistake for the P3, when paired with the P4, it propelled it to massive performance gains as it worked in Dual Channel mode. All AMD had at the time was the Athlon XP line and even they couldn't touch the performance of the P4 + RAMBUS setup. ALso RAMBUS is used in consoles.

Actually, Rambus is a company. The "expensive piece of hardware" you're thinking of is RDRAM, made by Rambus.  The company is very much still around, with most of its revenue coming from chip licenses.
