New 64GB Crucial LRDIMMs Double a Server’s Memory Capacity
New 64GB DDR3L Load-Reduced DIMMs Deliver Up To 35 Percent More Memory Bandwidth for Demanding Workloads
- High-density Crucial® DDR3L Load-Reduced DIMMs enable users to populate more DIMMs per channel for up to twice the installed memory capacity of a server
- Offers up to a 35 percent increase in memory bandwidth compared to standard registered DIMMs, and eliminates the channel ranking limitation of standard DDR3 registered DIMMs
- Utilizes 1.35V for optimal energy efficiency
- Available in densities up to 64GB and kits up to 192GB
Boise, ID, and Glasgow, UK, 12 September, 2013 – Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and server memory, today announced the 64GB Crucial DDR3L Load-Reduced DIMMs (LRDIMMs) for servers, which enable more DIMMs per channel for up to twice the installed memory capacity per server. Additionally, these modules offer up to a 35 percent increase in memory bandwidth per server compared to standard DIMMs, and eliminate the channel ranking limitation of standard DDR3 registered DIMMs. The Crucial DDR3L LRDIMMs is designed for IT professionals that manage high-end server environments with demanding workloads.
The 64GB Crucial DDR3L LRDIMMs operates using 1.35V, unlike the 1.5V common in DDR3 RDIMMs, making the new module more energy-efficient and cost-effective, especially in large deployments. Since Crucial LRDIMMs transmit power in a more efficient manner to the CPU (via the data path buffer), they use less voltage, which allows for additional power savings. These new memory modules are also compatible with OEM servers and warranties, allowing users to upgrade their existing server infrastructures without having to purchase an entirely new system. Crucial LRDIMMs fully support the latest Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family.
“For memory-intensive server applications such as cloud computing, virtualization, and in-memory databases, optimizing the capabilities of new or existing hardware is by far a more cost-effective solution than purchasing additional servers,” said Michael Moreland, worldwide DRAM product marketing manager, Crucial. “The new 64GB Crucial LRDIMMs allow servers to reach the maximum amount of installed memory possible, which can enable dramatic performance gains in memory bandwidth and overall server productivity, all while reducing power costs relative to adding additional servers.”
Crucial DDR3L LRDIMMs server memory is halogen-free and RoHS compliant. Available in densities up to 64GB and kits up to 192GB, the 64GB LRDIMM will be available to purchase in early calendar Q4 2013. Crucial LRDIMMs are backed by a limited lifetime warranty and are rigorously tested to meet or exceed the high-quality performance specifications customers have come to expect from Crucial. As a brand of Micron, one of the largest manufacturers of DRAM in the world, Crucial engineers work to design, refine, test, manufacture, and support an extensive line of memory modules.
