SMART Modular Technology Announces 24GB CoolFlex DDR3 RDIMM

SMART Modular Technologies, Inc., a leading independent designer, manufacturer and supplier of value added subsystems including memory modules, flash memory cards and other solid state storage products, today announced the addition of a 24GB CoolFlex RDIMM to its product lineup. The 24GB DDR3-1333 1.35V RDIMM helps solve unique memory capacity constraints in servers. SMART's CoolFlex module product family uses state-of-the-art flexible substrate technology to increase system memory capacity.

Servers configured with two processors and sixteen registered DIMMs are generally limited to a maximum memory capacity of 256GB. When using 16GB DDR3-1333 RDIMMs these systems can be fully populated. However, when switching to 32GB four-rank RDIMMs, the maximum number of DIMMs per Channel (DPC) drops down to one. A system configured with two channels per processor and four DIMMs per channel can only be populated with one 32GB RDIMM per channel for a total memory capacity of 128GB. SMART's new 24GB Coolflex RDIMM solves this constraint by allowing these systems to be fully populated with sixteen 24GB RDIMMs totaling 384GB and representing a 50% increase in memory capacity.

Transcend Announces 32GB DDR3 Load-Reduced DIMMs

Transcend Information, Inc., a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, today announced the arrival of its 32GB DDR3 Load-Reduced DIMM (LRDIMM) memory module. An important component of today's powerful servers, LRDIMMs use a specially designed buffer to minimize the load on the server memory bus, allowing administrators to maximize memory capacity, increase performance, and reduce the power consumption of their systems.

In standard RDIMM technology, the data bus connects directly to the multiple ranks of DRAM chips on the module, which increases electrical load and limits system speed as more modules are added. In contrast, Transcend's DDR3 Low Voltage LRDIMMs feature a full memory buffer chip on the module, which acts as a go-between for all signals sent from the host to the DRAM chips, reducing the electrical load on all interfaces. Compared to standard RDIMMs or UDIMMs, a system using Transcend LRDIMMs can support more modules per channel and higher maximum memory capacity without sacrificing speed.
