In the end I am frankly beginning not to care anymore.
Rambus has yet to get PC1066 mainstream, do I care anymore if they are planning some new channeling and speeds?
Hell no, those guys are SERIOUSLY DRAGGING A$$, and that plain pisses me. On top of that they charge abnormal premiums, like 299$ CDN for 256MB sticks, quality Mushkin, IIRC.

Until Rambus sets their feet and hands straight, I just don't care what they come up with, as it will barely affect us.

And for the record, I'm willing to bet PC800 sticks have sold more than PS2s did with the RDRAM in them! That's HOW much Rambus would win if they only relied on Sony's console's memory. (hint: it ain't good)

There are few places here, and it is incredibly expensive, just NOT worth the extra 2-5% performance boost.
The rare 10% boosts are, as stated, RARE!
The soon to arrive Dual Channel SiS or Intel Springdale will make sure we can finally get nearly the entire supply of 4.2GB/sec (latency hindering and all), and for little money.
