Elpida Memory, Inc., Japan's leading global supplier of Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM), today announced that it has shipped samples of its Fully-Buffered Dual in-line Memory Modules (FB-DIMM) that provide advanced performance for next-generation servers. The industry standard specification is complete and will be confirmed by JEDEC (Joint Electron Device Engineering Counsel).

FB-DIMMs have been designed to provide significant performance gains over current Registered DIMM solutions, and they will offer unprecedented speeds up to 4.8 Gigabits per second (Gbps) data rate, equivalent to 6.4 Gigabytes per second (GB/s) data bandwidth. Existing DDR2 Registered DIMMs offer only 3.2 Gigabytes per second.
