Whatever happened to...Quad Band Memory? Posted December 27, 2002 EST 12:55AM by Agitator!!


Over the years there have been many promising products that never make it. Some don't even make it to market, while others arrive but never quite catch on. Quad Band Memory (QBM) was announced back in November 2001. Here it is December 2002 and there still aren't any QBM products on the market. Will this turn into another case of vaporware? It is still too early to tell. However, it finally appears that products are just around the corner. For more on the latest developments for QBM, click here.

Comment: What's the point? It'll only be replaced by another memory technology in a few months and DDR is plenty fast enough for all but the most ultra-demanding applications (like Doom III!!!)

Comment: Uhh, why not make QBM-DDRII? :-) (DDR-II is supposed to help a bunch with crosstalk issues right? Is that the only thing really holding them back..or timing issues?)

Comment: not athlon, speed yes, but not the extra bandwidth. P4 will take advantage of it.
Hammer will have 800mhz FSB and will take advantage of it using sync operation.
so bottom line is, no for now but yes later when both Hammer and P4 800mhz FSB comes out.

Comment: A P4 could right now. (533 FSB), AMD will have to wait for Hammer. (Althon XP/MP's FSB (266/333MHz) is full with pc 2700 or pc 3000 ddr ram)

Comment: Will systems even be able to take advantage of that extra bandwidth?
