BOISE, Idaho and GLASGOW, United Kingdom, June 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, is now shipping DDR4 server memory. Designed to enable next generation enterprise environments with increased speed, bandwidth, and energy efficiency, Crucial DDR4 server memory modules are available for immediate purchase through select global channel partners and at crucial.com.
The modules are up to twice as fast and deliver double the memory bandwidth over DDR3 technology when it was introduced (1066 MT/s and 8.5GB/s with DDR3 vs. 2133 MT/s and 17GB/s on DDR4), and are expected to get even faster as the technology matures. Operating at 1.2V, Crucial DDR4 server memory uses up to 20 percent less voltage than DDR3 technology when it was introduced (1.5V). In addition, Crucial DDR4 server memory can be up to 40 percent more energy efficient than previous generations of DDR3 memory, when coupled with other technologies introduced with DDR4. Crucial DDR4 server memory is optimized for future Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 product family-based systems.
"The speed and efficiency benefits of DDR4 technology mark a significant advancement in server computing," said Shannon Poulin, Vice President of Intel's Data Center Group. "As a brand of Micron, Crucial not only understands the technology needed to support the evolution of computing ecosystems, but also how to best service the needs of our mutual channel customers. We're thrilled to continue Intel's collaboration with Crucial, as we reach yet another milestone in enabling next-generation server platforms together."
"Data-intensive server applications continue to require higher densities of memory as they struggle to meet ever-increasing and more demanding workloads," said Michael Moreland, worldwide product marketing manager, Crucial. "Crucial DDR4 memory modules, coupled with Intel's next generation of Xeon processors, push speed and bandwidth capabilities to a new level to meet these needs and deliver increased performance and efficiency to the entire server infrastructure."
