Kingston Technology Company, Inc, the independent worldwide leader in memory products, on Thursday announced the release of its new line of Fully Buffered-DIMM memory modules (FB-DIMM).
Kingston's FB-DIMM modules are a high-speed, high-density memory solution for related technology workstation and server platforms. It offers memory flexibility and more expansion options, opening new horizons in memory technology.
FB-DIMMs resolve the DDR2 memory speed vesus capacity bottleneck and comply with JEDEC standards. FB-DIMM memory architecture is expected to allow up to six memory channels with each channel supporting up to eight dual-rank memory modules and two channels to simultaneously read and write in concurrent transactions.
The FB-DIMMs provides a solution to many signal integrity and quality concerns.
"It increases server memory capacity from 8 GB to 192 GB at a high speed based on a 4GB-module configuration, a twenty-four-fold increase," said Scott Chen, Vice President, APAC Business Development, Kingston.
"In addition to higher capacity, FB-DIMMs will have a peak bandwidth four times greater than standard DDR2 server modules," Scott added.
