Samsung ships 16-gigabyte DDR3 Modules


Samsung announced that it has shipped the world’s first and smallest high-density memory modules based on 2-gigabit (Gb), 50 nanometer (nm)-class DDR3. These modules include 16-gigabyte (GB) registered inline memory module (RIMM) and an 8GB RDIMM (registered dual inline memory module).

The 16GB high density module runs at 066 Megabits per second (Mbps) allowing up tp 192GB of total memory density for a 2-socket CPU server system. Samsung’s 16GB RDIMM module is the world’s first to operate at 1.35 volts, providing around 20 percent savings in power consumption over 1.5V DDR3 solutions.
