Crucial shows off 64 GB LRDIMM modules for servers

Crucial Technology has announced the company’s first LRDIMM (load-reduced dual-inline memory module) memory modules with the record capacity of 64 GB. The new memory allows users to populate twice as many memory banks and will power the next generation of servers.

The 64 GB Crucial modules offer DDR3 memory technology but operate at 1.35V unlike regular DDR3 memory, which needs 1.5V of power. The memory also runs at 1333 MHz at CAS 9 and offers up to 35 per cent better memory bandwidth per server compared to regular DIMM memory that runs at 1066 MHz.

“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. 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,” said Michael Moreland, worldwide DRAM product marketing manager at Crucial.

The new memory fully supports the latest Intel Xeon E5 Ivy Bridge-EP processors and comes with halogen-free technology. Backed by lifetime warranty the memory is expected to be on the market in Q4 2013. Its pricing is still unknown.
