LRDIMMs, RDIMMs, and Supermicro's Latest Twin

The advantage of HCDIMMs is that HCDIMMs run one speed bump faster than LRDIMMs. So while LRDIMMs have to throttle back to 1066MHz at 3 DPC, HCDIMMs run at 1333MHz. According to a Netlist sponsored report, HCDIMMs offer about 17% higher bandwidth, which sounds reasonable to us. Secondly, the distributed buffer architecture is the same architecture that DDR4 is converging on. [Read More]

Netlist claims to accelerate EDA applications by 8%

A memory company says: we can make EDA applications run faster. That is the claim for a press release and white paper that I was sent the other day, so I wanted to find out what this was all about. They start to present the facts such as processor speeds growing at 60% per year, with hard drive capacities keeping pace but memory performance only growing at 9% per year. The number of cores increasing etc. As a reference they turn to DDR3 which they say can transfer up to 10.6 GB of data per second [Read More].

Interop In Advance: HyperCloud Claims To Overcome Server's Natural RAM Limits

Interop NYC 2010 (Oct 18-22) begins one week from today and in this final stretch before the show, InformationWeek will be posting highlights for attendees to watch for (it's not too late to register). One of those highlights will be server RAM from a company called Netlist. But it's not just any RAM. Netlist claims that this memory -- called "Hypercloud" -- is uniquely qualified to address the needs of cloud computing and datacenter consolidation (particularly where virtualization is in play).

Netlist goes virtual and dense with server memory

Netlist, a publicly traded company based in Irvine, California that was founded in 2000 and that you have probably never heard of, will probably make a big splash at the SC09 supercomputing trade show next week. Netlist, which makes memory modules on an OEM basis for various companies, said Wednesday that in December it will roll out a virtualized, dense memory DDR3 module that will be able to trick servers into having more main memory than they are supposed to.
