Not knowing what information you are looking for, I would direct you to Rambus' web site:

http://www.rambus.com

Note: RIMMs need to be installed in pairs. Hope this helps.

You will find RIMM or RDRAM on most Pentium 3 PC's, and many Pentium 4 PC's.

For the Pentium 4 series, the modules MUST be installed in pairs.

For many Pentium 3 motherboards, the modules do not need to be installed in pairs, but you must install a continuity module (CRIMM) in the empty socket.
Performance will be slightly better with matched pairs.

RDRAM is loosing out to DDR RAM, as DDR has better "benchmark" performance numbers.

As with ALL types of RAM, you cannot mix RDRAM, DDR, or SDRAM in a single system.
Nor, can you use either type of RAM in a system that was not designed for it.

RIMM - abbreviation for Rambus Inline Memory Modules @ also known as Rambus Dynamic Read Access Memory (RDRAM). Used in Pentium3 using i820 chipsets (Camino chipsets - another name fot i820 chipsets), & Pentium4 using i850 & i850e chipsets. As I concern there are 4 types of RDRAM :
PC600, PC700, PC800, PC1600. The differences between them are the bus speed.
PC 600 - 333MHz
PC 800 - 400MHz
PC 1600 - 533MHz.
I hope it will help you....

RIMM - abbreviation for Rambus Inline Memory Modules @ also known as Rambus Dynamic Read Access Memory (RDRAM). Used in Pentium3 using i820 chipsets (Camino chipsets - another name fot i820 chipsets), & Pentium4 using i850 & i850e chipsets. Minimum memory installed are 64MB for i820(1 socket installed with 64MB and another socket with RIMM contimuity module) & 128MB for i850&i850e (2 sockets installed with 64MB each & another 2 sockets with RIMM contimuity module). As I concern there are 4 types of RDRAM :
PC600(333MHz), PC700, PC800(400MHz), PC1600(533MHz). The differences between them are the bus speed.
Important thing to know when installing RIMM:
*i820 chipsets consist 2 RIMM sockets & it allows RIMM installed with different capacity but same in bus speed.
Eg: RIMM 1 installed with 64MB PC800
RIMM 2 installed with RIMM contimuity module.
If you wish to populate RIMM 2, the memory used should be PC800 also but with different size(128MB, 256MB).

i850&i850e chipsets consist 4 RIMM sockets.
Eg: RIMM 1 installed with 64MB PC800
RIMM 2 installed with 64MB PC800
RIMM 3 installed with RIMM contimuity module.
RIMM 4 installed with RIMM contimuity module.

If you wish to populate RIMM 3&4, the memory used should be PC800 also but with different size(128MB, 256MB).
