I think it was closer to 90%. Yeah, Rambus would have to make something to need to license other peoples technology.
Man I hate Rambus so much. Sure, they created a lot of the tech behind SDRAM, DDR and GDDR, but the way they got it into the marketplace pisses me off. For those who don't know, they sat on the board that designed DDR and had a lot of influence on it. Only after DDR was standardized did they mention that, "oh, by the way, we have patents on all that technology we suggested you use, so now you all owe us money if you want to produce DDR". Not only that, but by competing against DDR with their own RDRAM, they ensured the only winner in the end would be Rambus. Total scum.
