It is a type of memory. RDRAM (Rambus DRAM) is a type of SDRAM (synchronous dynamic RAM) designed by the Rambus Corporation. It is a type of DDR (Dual Data Rate) memory. It was supported by Intel for use with Intel processors from year 2000 to 2003 after which Intel started supported the standard DDR memory modules instead of RDRAM modules. Since then its usage and market has significantly reduced with standard DDR and then DDR2 picking up market share.

Rambus has been in fight with various memory vendors for patents and royalty payments for many years .
