NVIDIA Unveils New Open Standard Memory Specification

NVIDIA announced the results of a collaborative memory development effort called Enhanced Performance Profiles, or EPP, which allows consumers to easily expose new, advanced performance memory settings built into high-performance memory DIMMs for even higher levels of overall PC system performance. In addition, NVIDIA also announced that Corsair Memory is the first memory vendor to announce support for the new EPP specification, and is expected to have new EPP-based memory DIMMs available in the channel later this month.

Developed as an extension to the traditional Serial Presence Detect (SPD) found on today's high-performance DIMMs, Enhanced Performance Profiles allow memory manufacturers to integrate additional module performance data in the unused portion of the JEDEC standard SPD, allowing compatible motherboards to read and take advantage of added performance capabilities. Enhanced Performance Profiles were developed as an open standard, and immediate adoption is expected shortly from other motherboard partners and PC memory suppliers.

While memory modules with Enhanced Performance Profiles will work on any motherboard, only motherboards equipped with specificial BIOSes, such as those designed for NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCPs, will detect the presence of these new capabilities and prompt the user to set PC boot parameters for guaranteed optimized settings. End users will be able to measure the impact on benchmark performance and verify detailed parametric settings using common system utilities such as Lavalys EVEREST or NVIDIA nTune.
