Samsung to demonstrate for the first time a 16 GB VLP memory module at the VM World 2010
Samsung will demonstrate for the first time a 16-Gigabyte (GB), very low profile (VLP) memory module at the VM World 2010 in an IBM HS22V blade server, running on Intel Xeon 5600-series processors. The Samsung 16GB 40nm-class DDR3 memory provides a powerful green solution, consuming 70 percent less power than four 4GB DDR3 modules and over 40 percent less than two 8GB modules, in setting a new “standard” for lower power consumption in servers. The module’s very low profile (18.75 mm high) allows it to be used in extremely compact blade servers.
Samsung High-density, 40nm-class DDR3 will benefit data center mangers, IT directors and server farm managers who need to work with large data sets at significantly faster speeds than those offered by most servers on the market today.
