Mobile XDR architecture the future of mobile devices, 3D gaming


Faster gaming, more resource intensive applications, longer battery life, and hopefully a bit cheaper on your pocket. That is basically what you can expect when Rambus’ Mobile XDR memory architecture is implemented into the next-generation of mobile devices.

The Mobile Memory Initiative was introduced last year, and today Mobile XDR has been unveiled promising a future of devices that exceed power and performance targets dramatically.

“Future mobile applications demand far higher performance and longer battery life than today’s mobile products can achieve,” said Sharon Holt, senior vice president of Licensing and Marketing at Rambus. “Mobile XDR memory provides the ideal solution for designers to offer leading-edge mobile content in a dramatically lower power and cost-effective manner. Uniquely, the Mobile XDR architecture delivers these benefits in SoC and DRAM devices that can be built with current manufacturing infrastructure reducing both risk and time-to-market.”

The Mobile XDR memory architecture is expected to achieve throughputs of over 17GB/s of memory bandwidth from a single Mobile XDR DRAM device while extending battery life by over 30 minutes. This means device designers will be able to develop resource intensive multimedia applications using stereoscopic 3D HD video. Even 3D gaming will be made possible on future smartphones, tablets, netbooks and other multimedia devices.
