Kingston announced it has released low-voltage registered DDR3 memory modules that have been validated for use in Intel's new Westmere-EP processor-based server platform.
The Kingston® ValueRAM® DDR3L (‘L’ for low voltage) 1333MHz (1.35 volt) server RDIMMs were certified on Intel’s Westmere reference platform
Kingston is proud to offer customers our 1.35-volt server memory and having it certified for use with Intel’s next-generation Xeon® processors,” said Stephane Rizzetto European Product Development Manager for DRAM of Kingston Technology. “Our low voltage registered server memory helps lower total cost of ownership in datacenters as it uses less power, thus producing less heat than equivalent 1.5-volt modules resulting in lower cooling costs for memory-dense servers.”
“Intel worked closely with Kingston in developing and certifying their low-voltage DDR3L memory for our upcoming Westmere-EP triple-channel server platform,” said Geof Findlay, Memory Ecosystem Manager, Intel. “Kingston’s low voltage server memory combined with Intel’s 32nm processor utilizing the Westmere architecture will help datacenters increase performance while reducing overall energy costs.”
