Nice article - as usual, RWT is expanding my understanding of computing.
Care to speculate on the possability of a HTX version of the co-proccessor?

I'm a little confused about the RLRDRAM, is it a seperate segment of memory to the DDR2 channel(s)?
If so how does it compare to more familiar types of ram?
PC-133? DDR(1)-400? DDR2-800?
