    Apacer Technology has become the first memory module vendor to introduce a high-capacity 8GB DDR2-667 ECC Registered DIMM memory module for high-end servers and workstations. Apacer, which has already launched a 4GB DDR2-667 ECC Registered DIMM module, will be using this new ultra-high-capacity memory to meet the needs of the latest AMD Opteron based servers. Apacer's 8GB DDR2-667 ECC Registered DIMM is manufactured using advanced 70nm production process technology and carefully selected server-grade DDR SDRAM components, ensuring lower power consumption, high stability and superior electrical characteristics.

    Quite common in servers.

    Though why aren't there FB variants? Are they planned?

    boils down to memory controllers supporting it (this module density). Nice module though.

    Almost looks like photoshopped :D But nicely squeezed 4x2GB sticks in to one :)

    I would buy one,

    I dont think they will, you just need airflow..just like anything else. but we will see.

    Seems they're already available.


    Doubt it, DDR2 is low powered, after all, while they won't exactly be overclocking them. And frankly, from the noise most servers emit rom the fans, I'd say that there will be enough fans to bring a little airflow over these.
    They run at the standard 1.8v too, and CL5 means they're definately not going to be very stressed at 800MHz, so it should run cool.

    Maybe when the new Intel chips come out with the integrated memory architecture stuff they've been working on -- I'd always heard that Athlons were better in server situations because of that, so it makes sense that a company making these would focus on AMD platforms for now.

    Edit: I stand corrected (see above post).

    question: how would these go with 1U racks?

    They wouldn't.


    I would say because of the small form factor of a 1U rack, the vast majority of servers would be in larger racks which could accommodate the module size.
    btarunr says thanks.

    The point is to reach max capasity for ram in vista (32gigs)

    I heard the limit is 8GB for the version of Vista that most users will have [http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/aa366778.aspx] -- I have no idea, though, why all versions just can't use the max of 128GB.

    64-bit CPUs can address 16 Exabytes of data, so this is to max out the amount of memory that the memory controller and motherboard can handle, rather than maxing out the maximum that Vista can handle, or that the CPU can use.
    Either way, I doubt server and workstations would be running the same exact versions of Vista as home users, so the limit doesn't apply there, or most likely won't.
