AMD FirePro RG220 has Rambus memory

Posted on Wednesday, May 05 2010 @ 18:53:55 CEST by

Bright Side of News noticed Rambus makes its entry into the GPU market with the new ATI FirePro RG220 graphics card.
Enter FirePro RG200 [RG stands for Remote Graphics]. AMD's latest professional graphics card comes with quite an unique set of features, which include mixing the RV711 GPU [not the Evergreen DirectX 11 family], RealTek's 10/100/1000 3-Port Gigabit Switch, PLX PCIe Bridge chip and PCoIP Comp/Tx controller. Memory is from one side 512MB of GDDR memory for the GPU and yrs, RDRAM memory for the PC-over-IP controller.

In this way, RDRAM finally makes a debut on a graphics card, yet not in the way Rambus hoped/planned to be. Interestingly though, ATI and subsequently, AMD keep on innovating - AMD/ATI was the first company to put HDMI, DisplayPort, GDDR4, GDDR5, PC-Over-IP, and now - RDRAM memory on a graphics card.
