Kingston today announced the release of 4-GB 533 MHz and 667 MHz ValueRAM DDR2 registered ECC DIMM memory modules. The advent of new larger capacity, high-performance memory, combined with AMD Opteron processors, the latest in processor technology, and cutting-edge TYAN motherboards meets the critical performance demands of high-end computing and server applications.
"The new Kingston 4-GB 533 and 667 MHz DDR2 DIMMs are designed to support the growing need for high-density memory in AMD Opteron processor-based servers," said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston. "By partnering with technology companies such as AMD and TYAN, we are enabling our customers to deliver quality servers to the market," added Tekunoff.
"Given the capacity advantages offered by Kingston's new 4-GB ValueRAM DDR2 Registered ECC modules, AMD Opteron processor-based server applications can demonstrate peak performance to the growing server/workstation market," said Pat Patla, director, Server/Workstation Marketing, AMD. "Kingston quality and its high-density modules perfectly complement the performance and power-saving benefits of AMD Opteron processors with Direct Connect Architecture."
"The alliance between TYAN and Kingston has resulted in substantial progress for memory quality and performance for our joint customer base," said Danny Hsu, vice president, worldwide sales and marketing, TYAN. "Demand has been increasing for both memory capacity and speed as applications such as high-performance computing, clustering, bio-sciences, and virtualization gain in popularity."
Kingston ValueRAM DDR2 Registered ECC memory modules are available in 256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB, 2 GB and now 4 GB configurations to support high-end computing. Each module completes 24 hours of burn-in reliability testing, extensive dynamic testing and visual inspection. ValueRAM DDR2 memory comes with a lifetime warranty and 24/7 technical support plus legendary Kingston reliability.
The new 4-GB 667 MHz modules are shipping immediately while the 533-MHz modules will be available beginning of December.
