SMART Modular Announces 8GB Dual-Rank DDR2 Registered DIMMs
SMART Modular Technologies yesterday announced its first cost-effective 8GB dual-rank PC2-4200 registered DIMM (RDIMM), featuring SMART's advanced packaging technologies and the MetaSDRAM chipset from MetaRAM. Designed for use in high-end servers, SMART's new RDIMM doubles available storage capacity, while significantly lowering cost compared to traditional dual-rank modules, and improving system performance by lowering power consumption with use of a four-rank module solution.
The new module combines SMART's advanced DDR2 packaging technologies with the MetaRAM chipset architecture, enabling servers to replace the functionality found in modules built with more expensive components. For example, SMART's 8GB RDIMM doubles the maximum memory capacity from 128GB to 256GB on AMD Barcelona-based 32-slot motherboards for high performance computing (HPC) and server applications. Also well suited for embedded computing, the SMART RDIMM provides up to 32GB of total capacity on the San Clemente-based, Cranberry Lake 4-slot small form factor platform offered by Intel. Using conventional modules today to achieve these system densities would be impractical because of increased cost and power consumption and degradation of system performance due to excessive module bus loading.
