No Shocker Here – AMD Not Going To Use FB-DIMMSFri, Sep 15, 2006 - 7:23 PM
The Inq is reporting on rumors that AMD has removed FB-DIMMs from their roadmap for 2008, which doesn’t shock us as Intel was the major force behing getting FB-DIMMs out the door and to the market.
AMD TOOK FB-DIMMS off the roadmap for 2008. They are gone, wiped, no longer pining for the fjords. With this, and Intel’s pullback, it looks like the tech is about to be put out to pasture, I can’t see how any AMB maker can justify investment at this point. It is a pity, FB-DIMM is a neat tech, and they gave out spiffy robot-guy keychains to promote it.
