    Surprised to see no mention of RDRAM when describing the NetBurst architecture given how key that was to the Intel strategy of the time (and how many review sites, Tom's included, thought that it would have been better to go with DDR/DDR2).

    Well, long story short, it just didn't make the cut. The amount of information that could have gone into each of these pages would have simply been too much. We have reviews for several of these processors and for their related chipsets that users can read for more information, this piece is supposed to be a condensed look at the processors, so not everything made it in.

    OK, just confused by the fact that you did mention memory types from Sandy Bridge onwards...

    The processor also featured several other improvements, including support for higher-performance DDR3.
