What the ...
@"DDR, DDR2, DDR3, LPDDR, LPDDR2, GDDR2, GDDR3, GDDR4, and portions of GDDR5 memory controllers"
What so Rambus now controls patents on all memory controllers?! ... Or is this another patent Chess game to expand its meaning by implied wrong doing (by bullying people to sign up to their licencing protection racket) rather than actually outright proving wrong doing. See world just about everyone but you has signed the Rambus licencing agreement so they all agree with Rambus, so now you, you and you hiding at the back can now also pay us protection money or we beat up up in court, after all the judge will see all these companies already signed up to our licencing protection racket so they all agree with us) ... that seems to becoming a common game these days in patent legal cases. Get people to sign licences even when they have done no wrong, then force everyone else to sign the licences by saying look all these companies already agree with us as they have signed up so now you have to licence from us as well. WTF!
So now Rambus controls every memory controller?!
Surely the rest of the industry can get behind JEDEC and its standards to beat Rambus back into line, otherwise this legal move (and PR move) sounds like Rambus now lay legal claim to all memory controllers?!
That's a wonderful deal for Rambus to imply wrong doing on just about all major memory controllers as now every memory device and every CPU and GPU can now have a Rambus patent tax added to it!
Wonderful and so in the end we will all end up having to pay more to cover that Rambus patent tax! (and worse still its multiple times! (CPU+GPU+RAM)) on every bit of technology we now buy ... oh joy! :(
