Supports new Intel Xeon processor 5600 series
Lexar Media, a provider of memory products for digital media, has launched Crucial DDR3L-1333Mhz 1.35v energy-efficient server memory modules in support of the new Intel Xeon processor 5600 series.
Available in 1GB, 2GB and 4GB RDIMM and very low profile (VLP) RDIMM modules, Crucial DDR3L memory modules are compatible and have been validated with the new Intel Xeon processor 5600 series.
The new DDR3L memory is compatible with legacy DDR3 systems and will also run at 1.5v, although 1.35v voltages are only achieved when the overall system supports them, the company said.
According to Lexar Media, the new DDR3L technology enables an overall memory subsystem power savings of up to 20% over DDR3 and up to 40% memory subsystem power savings over legacy DDR2-based servers.
In addition, the reduction in memory power consumption also reduces the cooling demands of the overall system. DDR3L memory provides no-compromise performance compared to DDR3, and considerably higher throughput in comparison to DDR2, Lexar Media claims.
The company said that the crucial energy-efficient DDR3L 1.35v modules are covered by the crucial reliance program, which includes limited lifetime warranties, dedicated toll-free support, and the option of an on-site spares program.
Jim Jardine, senior worldwide product manager of Lexar Media, said: The benefits of energy-efficient DDR3L memory are clear – most notably the significant reduction in memory sub-system energy consumption and overall system cooling demands.
“Additionally, all Crucial DDR3L 1.35v memory has been fully validated and certified compatible with the Intel Xeon Processor 5600 series, so customers can rest assured their server infrastructure investment will perform reliably and efficiently with Intel’s newest processors.
