Hynix Announces Validation of the World’s First 8 GB 2-Rank DDR3 R-DIMM

Hynix Semiconductor today announced the validation of the HMT31GR7AUP4C, the world’s first MetaRAM based 8 GB 2-rank DDR3 RDIMM, on Intel’s Nehalem CPU based Tylersburg-EP platform
When fully populated with 3 DIMMs per channel, the Hynix 8 GB RDIMM operates at 1066 MHz speed. Competing industry standard modules exhibit performance degradation to 800 MHz when operating under full load. The Hynix 8 GB DDR3 RDIMM enables a maximum capacity of 144 GB operating at 1066 MHz in a dual processor Tylersburg-EP platform, not possible with industry standard DIMMs.

Hynix 8 GB DDR3 RDIMM satisfies the market demand for high performance server memory and expects to secure a leading position in this market. The 16 GB DDR3 RDIMM based on MetaRAM technology is slated for introduction in the third quarter of this year. The emerging LR-DIMM (Load Reduced-DIMM), the future standard for memory buffer, is expected to adopt performance objectives similar to MetaRAM.

Volume production of the 8 GB DDR3 2-Rank RDIMM will begin from second quarter of this year. Hynix also plans to receive Intel validation on 8 GB DDR3 RDIMM operating at 1333 MHz in the first half of this year.Source: Hynix
