The Pentium 4 definitely has had it fair share of struggle and strife. In part, one of the reasons why Intel took some "heat" about the P4, was their choice of system memory interface. True, RAMBUS does provide serious bandwidth advantages over legacy PC133 subsystems but cost factors and business practices of Intel's memory partner, have proven to be a serious thorn in their side. Not too long after the release of Pentium 4, arch rival AMD signed up in the DDR SDRAM camp and provided a lower cost alternative with bandwidth in the same ballpark as Intel's RAMBUS solution. It became evident that regardless of performance, Intel also needed a solution for the value segment and RAMBUS couldn't be part of that picture. Naturally, one would think that a DDR SDRAM P4 solution would be a logical move for Intel. However, with so much invested in the RAMBUS architecture, Intel wasn't going to steal their own thunder by ushering in new memory support so soon, that would compete head on with RDRAM. No, instead they decided to take an interim step backwards somewhat, to PC133 SDRAM again and then follow on later in Q1 '02, with a DDR SDRAM i845 solution for the P4.
