Intel Penryn to use Rambus XDR memory?

There are rumours that there will be server and desktop chipsets for the Intel 45nm Penryn processor that use Rambus XDR memory.
Let me be the first to say that if this is true, it is about #(*&$# time someone used this memory for something useful, on paper anyway, it looks to be the 'better way'.

On a more strategic level, perhaps Intel dummied AMD and Sun to commit to FBD and DDR3 just about the time Intel dumps it.

Again, it's speculation, but if it's true it's real devious guys, pat yourself on the back.
