Did you really miss out on nVidia's nForce? It's a dual DDR solution giving a total of 4.2 GB/s of bandwidth with superior latency.

Didn't you mean "It will be a dual DDR ..." It isn't out yet, and if previous problems with 266MHz DDR are any indication nVidia will face a lot of problems making that solution work. Plus you don't mention that the 4.2 GB/s includes graphics bandwidth. When I see it for sale by major OEMs and see how it tests, then I'll give this proposed solution credit if it so deserves. It does look interesting, but I'm skeptical.

The true test won't come until next year when we can compare DDR and RDRAM on more comparable systems. Until then I'm going with what Intel says: RDRAM is the preferred solution.
