Samsung produces 32GB server module

Korean semi giant Samsung Electronics said it has made what it claims is the first 32GB load reduced, dual inline memory module (LrDIMM) aimed at the server market.

The module uses 40 nanometre four gigabit DDR3 processors, and will go into mass production in the second half of this year.

The prototype that Samsung has sampled include 72 four gigabit DDR3 chips plus an extra memory buffer chip. The company said that reduces the load on the memory subsystem and claimed that the load reduction can be as much as 75 percent.

The introduction of the 32GB module means that machines can support up to 384GB per CPU. Two way servers can support up to 768GB.

Samsung also claimed that servers kitted out with LRDIMMs will process data at 1,333 megabits per second.
