Transcend today announced its new Value DDR4 memory modules lineup that includes DDR4 2133MHz UDIMMs, RDIMMs, ECC-DIMMs and ECC SO-DIMMs, fully compatible with the latest Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 server family processor, Haswell-E CPU with X99 chipset and micro servers.
The newly announced DDR4 memory modules claim to bring superior performance, increased stability and ultra-low power consumption of 1.2V. These features combine to make the new DDR4 series memory modules from Transcend the perfect choice for cloud computing, virtualization, and high-performance computing.
For these new DDR4 memory modules, Transcend is using top-quality DRAM chips that ensure stable performance and durability. Thanks to the utilization of higher density components, the capacity options offered range from 4GB to 32GB. The new modules support high speed transmission of 2133MHz and come with up to 17GB/s memory bandwidth.
Another major highlight of the new DDR4 lineup is their ultra-low operating voltage of 1.2V, bringing up to 40% reduction in electrical load of the memory bus when compared to 1.5V standard DDR3 DIMMs. The lower power consumption helps extend battery life on portable devices such as notebooks and a general reduction in energy consumption when used on larger form-factors. Along with lower power consumption, the new memory modules generate lower heat than DDR3 memory modules, increasing the overall reliability of the module.
The newly announced DDR4 memory modules come with JEDEC (Joint Electron Device Engineering Council) compliance and are claimed to have undergone strenuous 64 bit kernel, single-core and multi-core testing to ensure the highest quality possible. All the products announced today will carry Transcend’s renowned Limited Lifetime Warranty.
These new memory modules should be available for purchase soon, although no pricing information has been announced yet. In the coming months we should see a number of other DDR4 based memory modules get announced, specifically targeted at the consumer PC market.
