Fear not readers, this is not an announcement that AMD will be shifting to RDRAM for Socket AM2, so sit back and relax.
Advanced Micro Devices has agreed to pay Rambus $75 million over five years to license technology that helps boost the speeds at which computer chips communicate with one another, according to CNN Money. On the heels of the announcement Rambus shares shot up 11 percent to close at $17.86 each.
Rambus generates revenue by developing technologies such as those licensed by AMD, patenting them, and selling the rights to the technology to other companies.
