If Crucial could tell you one thing about its new 64GB DDR3L Load-Reduced
(LRDIMMs) for servers, it would be that they enable more DIMMs per channel
for up to
twice the installed memory capacity per server. By enabling high-end server
environments with demanding workloads to reach the maximum amount of
installed memory possible, dramatic performance gains in memory bandwidth
and overall server productivity are possible, all while reducing power
costs relative to adding additional servers. Utilizing 1.35V (vs. 1.5V) for
optimal energy efficiency, Crucial LRDIMMs offer up to a 35%
increase in memory bandwidth compared to standard registered DIMMs and
eliminate the channel ranking limitation of standard DDR3 registered DIMMs.
These new memory modules also are compatible with OEM servers and
warranties, allowing users to upgrade their existing server infrastructures
without having to purchase an entirely new system. Crucial LRDIMMs fully
support the latest Intel Xeon processor E5 family.
