DDR2 Memory Serves Up An Ace

In the interest of all things “green” and with server energy consumption ever increasing, there is a great desire to lower power consumption where possible, especially as energy costs continue to soar. Noting these trends, Samsung Semiconductor’s latest DDR2 memory dual-inline memory module (DIMM) enables servers to score an ace in the low-power department.

These fully buffered modules offer between 1 Gbyte and 8 Gbytes of capacity and provide up to 50% power savings at 1.55 V. According to the company, they’re also the highest-density low-power DDR2 memory available. “By combining a 2-Gbit chip density with a 1.55 voltage using 60-nm class technology, we are delivering a tremendous value proposition to server OEMs,” said Kevin Lee, vice president, technical memory marketing, Samsung Semiconductor. “Samsung’s 2-Gbit-based DDR2 memory devices offer the major energy savings that most IT managers are seeking.”
