Crucial comes up with new high-density DDR4 server memory

The US company Micron Technology, which sells memory under its own Crucial brand, has announced new high-density DDR4 server memory. The new memory is available in two capacities – 32 GB and 64 GB per stick – and uses the VLP RDIMM memory standard. To achieve such high density the memory implements a dual stack of 8 Gb DDR4 DRAM memory chips to engineer a single 16 Gb component. The new memory runs at 2400 MHz and provides not only high capacity but also improved memory bandwidth.

“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 new Crucial memory comes with more features than initially expected, though. For instance the 32 GB VLP RDIMMs that the company offers are the highest density server memory modules Crucial offers for this form factor and are almost half the height (40 per cent shorter) than standard RDIMM memory modules. They enable the creation of memory dense systems and in addition to this they can be installed at a 90-degree angle to the motherboard in height-limited systems, which enables better airflow and lower system temperatures. The 64 GB LRDIMM modules are the highest density server memory modules that Crucual has ever offered. They come with a memory buffer chip that presents a single logical rank to the server, which allows users to populate more memory modules per channel with no memory bandwidth reduction. Moreover the new 32 GB and 64 GB memory modules from Crucial have been specifically optimized for Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 processors.

The new memory modules are now available at the web site of Crucial but it is unclear how much they cost.
