What's the difference between RDRAM and SDRAM...?
RDRAM (Rambus dynamic random access memory) and SDRAM (synchronous dynamic random access memory) are two different types of memory technology. RDRAM is newer and in some cases faster, but SDRAM is less expensive.
The most important thing to know is that you cannot use RDRAM in a system designed for SDRAM or vice versa. The two types of modules are different sizes and shapes, so they won't even fit into the same memory slots. You should buy whichever memory type was designed for your system.
SDRAM is dynamic random-access memory that is synchronized with the system bus. RDRAM provide a fast current memory with a maximum speed of 100 MHz and transfers data up to 800 MHz. RDRAM memory chip contains an integrated memory controller. SDRAM memory modules, where a single memory controller is located on the northbridge chip of the motherboard. RDRAM is much more expensive.
