I'm not convinced FB-DIMM wasn't attacked by Rambus. Specifically, anyone trying to make AMBs. Intel has already paid-up for full access to the RMBS patent portfolio, which fully protects them. Virtually every other DRAM manufacturer has either paid Rambus to go away for 5 years, or been in continual litigation. Samsung recently agreed to pay Rambus $900 million over 5 years for past transgressions.

Really, who hasn't Rambus gone after? They'll attack anyone in the DRAM industry.
