GeIL Launches a Wave of New 6-channel DDR3 Kits

GeIL wants to be the first manufacturer touting the term "hexa-channel" (6-channel) DDR3 memory. While machine architectures using 6-channels (384-bit wide) memory interfaces don't exist, dual-Nehalem Xeon machines use two triple-channel memory arrays. It's a play of the word "6-channels" there. In any case, GeIL is now selling DDR3 memory in kits of six modules. Its lineup spans across three of its main memory product-lines: Value, Ultra, and Gaming series. The kits are available in a variety of configurations that include specified DRAM speeds, and timings, as listed by the table below. The kits come backed by the company's lifetime warranty.

Why is the "Value" a set of six sticks? Wouldn't a real value set consist of 3x1gb sticks? Tell me these arn't aimed at dual cpu setups only.

still a good OC IMO... So for dual Xeons you NEED 2 triple chan RAM?

You'd WANT 6 sticks for dual Xeons.

As far as needs go, I believe you can do 1 stick per CPU, though I'd have to check on that...

If it wasnt' it wouldn't exist?

Ofcourse it is useful , many large sites use huge recources. (Like Microsoft , ebay)

also 771 = server socket , skulltrail motherboard = server motherboard

Absolutely.

With the introduction of multi-core processors, the amount of power a server can have is enormous. Servers with one or two processors used to mean that it only had one or two cores. You'd generally have it running a service or two and it's RAM needs were easily met. Today you can have 2, 4, 8, and soon 12 or 16 core servers with 16, 32, 64, or more gigabytes of RAM running a buku number of virtual machines.

Gainestown is already here...but I don't see that RAM aimed at the server market. It's like the BlackDragon 8 GB kit of DDR2 that they marketted as Quad Channel (Geil claimed certain motherboards like the P5K Deluxe would run Quad channel with their RAM). Which was nothing more than Dual Channel. It's RAM for i7 and probably i5 motherboards because of the 3 stick sets am I wrong?
