Nanya has released 2GB and 4GB 800MHz DDR2 RDIMM memory modules for the new 45nm AMD Opteron "Shanghai" processors.
“Nanya worked closely with AMD on the launch of the Quad-Core AMD Opteron processor (codenamed “Shanghai”) to ensure that Nanya DDR2 800 RDIMM would take advantage of the dramatic enhancements in energy efficiency and performance enabled by the new Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors,” said Dr. Pei Lin Pai, Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing and Spokesman of Nanya Technology Corporation.
“Both AMD and Nanya understand the increasingly critical role that memory plays in the overall performance of our customers’ datacenters,” said John Fruehe, director, Server and Workstation division, AMD (NYSE:AMD). “With significant enhancements in the new Quad-Core AMD Opteron processor that enable increased memory bandwidth, such as support for DDR2-800 memory, and Nanya’s new memory modules, we are confident that our joint customers will realize superior performance while keeping energy costs low.”
Nanya’s DDR2 800 RDIMM will power new Quad-Core AMD Opteron processor-based platforms. NT4GT72U4ND0BV and NT2GT72U4PD0BV are available now in production quantities. The modules are registered 240-Pin Double Data Rate 2 (DDR2) Synchronous DRAM Dual In-Line Memory Module (DIMM), organized as a 2 ranks 512MX72 high-speed memory array and a 1 rank 256Mx72 high-speed memory array. Nanya DDR2 RDIMMs are manufactured using raw cards developed for broad industry use as reference designs. The use of these common design files minimizes electrical variation between suppliers. All Nanya DDR2 SDRAM DIMMs deliver high performance, and it will always give high-end users the ultimate experience.
