New modules provide significant cost advantage compared to current 4Gb-based DDR4 modules
Taipei, Taiwan (Computex 2015), 2 June, 2015 - Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, is now sampling Crucial DDR4 2400MT/s 8Gb-based RDIMM, LRDIMM, and ECC UDIMM server modules through its Technology Enablement Program. Engineered to enable higher density modules, 8Gb-based DDR4 memory allows for increased performance, bandwidth, and energy efficiency.
Higher density modules, when combined with the next DDR4 speed increase of 2400MT/s, create greater channel bandwidth and channel density, as well as increased energy efficiency. Ultimately, these benefits provide more value per gigabit than current 4Gb-based offerings. Taken together, the increase in density, bandwidth, and value deliver a lower total cost of ownership for users.
"Our 8Gb-based modules will enable the next-generation of energy efficient servers to more readily keep up with the ever-increasing memory density and bandwidth demands of virtualisation, HPC, and big data applications," said Michael Moreland, worldwide product marketing manager, Crucial. "These modules can play a significant role in nearly any server strategy, no matter whether it is a new installation of a single server or the scale-up or scale-out of an existing deployment."
Designed for the next-generation processor product families, Crucial 8Gb-based server memory is extensively tested to mission-critical standards and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.1 The Technology Enablement Program provides channel partners who are currently developing or evaluating DDR4-capable platforms early access to Crucial DDR4 8Gb-based RDIMMs, LRDIMMs, and ECC UDIMMs. The new modules are expected to be available in late July and will be included in the Reliance Program.2 For more information about Crucial DDR4 memory technology, visit uk.crucial.com/ddr4.
