SMART Modular Introduces New Low-Power DDR2 FBDIMMs
SMART Modular Technologies today announced its new lineup of low-power fully-buffered DIMMs (FBDIMMs) available in densities up to 4GB for mainstream server and high performance computing (HPC) applications.
Utilizing the industry's lowest power 1.5V DRAMs and advanced memory buffers (AMBs), SMART's new modules achieve an average of 20 percent power savings compared to modules using standard 1.8V DRAMs and AMBs. Reducing power consumption in servers is now a top priority for OEM system designers because improving server efficiency helps reduce power consumption and minimize thermal issues that can degrade system reliability and data integrity.
By using 1.5V 1Gb DRAMs in conjunction with x8-based configurations, SMART's new modules cut in half the number of DRAMs needed per rank from 18 to 9, helping OEMs achieve the lowest possible power combination.
SMART offers 1.55V FBDIMMs, which are targeted at Intel-based server platforms specifically configured to support 1.5V operation, in DDR2-667 and DDR2-800 speed grades.
