This new dual-channel DDR2 (DDR400) memory option unleashes the power of the Intel Processor with its 800MHz front-side bus speed by matching the processor front-side bus bandwidth with an equal and balanced 6.4GB of memory bandwidth. This new higher peak bandwidth / transfer rate delivers up to 20% higher performance than the previous DDR memory offerings. DDR400 memory is the highest performing memory architectures available in the Intel server market today. One of the key features of this new memory advance is the FBGA (Fine Pitch Ball Grid Array) packaging technology which allows for a slim module design that increases the air flow space between the memory module and the circuit board. This increased air flow equates to improved system thermal performance and overall system reliability.
Features & Benefits:
• Higher peak bandwidth/transfer rates for increased performance delivers up to 20% higher peak bandwidth than DDR memory
• Memory Expansion to 8GBs for xSeries x226, Z20 and Blade servers
• Lower power consumption and better thermal characteristics are ideal for Blade servers delivering a 50% power reduction when compared to DDR memory
• Up to four DIMMs per channel compared to three DIMMs with DDR, resulting in as much as a 25% improvement compared to DDR memory.
