Smart Modular has recently introduced 64GB DDR3 load-reduced DIMM (LRDIMM). Smart Modular’s 64GB LRDIMM is optimized for high-end servers and will be launching in Q2 2012 to serve scientific, engineering, and financial computing applications that require high memory capacity and performance. Specifically, this product targets next-generation Intel Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge server platforms for high-performance computing applications.
The new LRDIMM combines innovative module packaging technology leveraging off-the-shelf commodity DRAMs to provide the industry’s highest density LRDIMM at the lowest possible cost.
The new 64GB LRDIMM utilizes a single JEDEC-compliant memory buffer chip, a dual PCB structure and a leading edge interconnect technology to provide maximum performance and density while achieving server-grade quality and reliability.
It is configured as 4Gx72 with eight ranks using 8Gb x4 DDP DRAMs running at DDR3-1333. Using rank multiplication allows the LRDIMM to enable more ranks of DRAMs to be populated on the memory module and be seamlessly accessed by the CPU memory controller.
