SMART Modular Technologies (WWH), Inc. announced its 8 GB dual-rank PC2-4200 registered DIMM (RDIMM) that features advanced packaging technologies and the MetaSDRAM chipset. Designed for use in high-end servers, the RDIMM doubles available storage capacity while lowering cost compared to traditional dual-rank modules, and improving system performance by lowering power consumption with the use of a four-rank module system. Well suited for embedded computing, the RDIMM provides up to 32 GB of total capacity on the San Clemente-based, Cranberry Lake 4-slot small form factor platform offered by Intel. By replacing four traditional 4 GB dual-rank RDIMMs with two of these 8 GB dual-rank DDR2 RDIMMs, designers can reduce power consumption by up to 20 percent.
