Transcend Intros 16 GB and 8 GB Server Memory Modules

Intel may have made it possible to build newer, better and more secure servers, but its Xeon E5 processors can't do anything on their own, so Transcend decided to offer some backup, so to speak.

While leaving it to others to create motherboards and racks or server blades, Transcend looked at the field where it excels: memory.

Long story short, it has launched a pair of Registered DIMM (RDIMM) memory modules.

Their capacities are of 16 GB and 8 GB, while the rest of their specifications make them suitable for different types of applications.

To start off, the 8 GB RDIMM is a low voltage module with a clock speed of 1,333 MHz. It is constructed with DDR3L 512Mbx8 DRAM chips.

It can operate on 1.35V instead of needing 1.5V and, by using it instead of two 4 GB modules, can cut power by up to half (50%). The lower electrical load on the memory controller helps.

Meanwhile, the 16 GB DDR3-1600 RDIMM is the so-called “highest density” module Transcend has at the moment.

Built out of 4 Gb DDR3 1 Gbx4 35nm DRAM chips, it is stable and durable while cutting power costs by up to 75% compared to four 4 GB modules.

The operational frequency is of, as one can guess from the name, 1,600 MHz, while the latency is of 11-11-11-28.

“Fully compatible with the latest generation of Intel Xeon and Core i7 processors, the cost-effective DDR3 memory modules provide increased memory density and higher performance, while significantly reducing power consumption,” the company says in its announcement.

Unfortunately, the formal press release did not hand out the prices of the memory, not that it matters much. Since these aren't consumer products, companies will probably negotiate with Transcend depending on their relationship, as well as volume order, speed of delivery, etc.
