Samsung releases 1 GB FB-DIMM Posted on 26/11/2004 at 10:26 by Marc
Samsung has just announced a FB-DIMM 1 GB DDR2 module. The FB-DIMM technology (Fully Buffered Dual In-Line Memory Module) is used to increase server memory density. This technology uses point to point links and serial signaling similar to PCI-Express to restrict the number of lanes to use.
So with 420 lanes it is possible to use 6 channels in FB-DIMM. With each channel able to manage up to 8 memory modules (48 in totals) the memory size will increase as well as the memory bandwidth compared to existing products. Samsung is planning to start the 1GB FB-DIMM mass production during the first half 2005.
