Crucial Launches Two New DDR4 Server Memory Modules with Higher Densities
Today, Crucial expanded its server memory product portfolio with two new offerings including a 32 GB DDR4 VLP RDIMMs and 64 GB DDR4 LRDIMMs. According to the manufacturer, the new DDR4 server memory modules are designed to allow for increased memory density, performance and bandwidth.
Both modules have quoted speeds of 2400 MT/s and offer the higher densities thanks to a dual stack of 8 GB DDR4 DRAM die to engineer a single 16 Gb component.
“Crucial’s latest additions to its DDR4 server memory line-up is our highest density offerings to date and enables greater installed memory per server,” said Michael Moreland, Crucial worldwide product manager. “These new server modules provide density levels appropriate for memory intensive applications like data analytics and modeling, as well as meeting the needs in the hyperscale environments.”
The 32 GB VLP RDIMMs are the highest density server memory modules that Crucial offers for their form factor. They are almost 40 per cent shorter than a standard RDIMM module, which makes them an ideal fit for memory dense systems like blade servers and microservers.
Further, these 32 GB RDIMMs can be installed at a 90-degree angle to the motherboard, enabling better airflow to keep the system cool.
Meanwhile, the 64 GB LRDIMM modules are integrated with a memory buffer chip that presents a single logical rank to the server, making way for more DIMMs per channel while maintaining memory bandwidth.
Both modules are backed by a limited lifetime warranty, and are available for purchase at www.crucial.com and through select global partners.
