Samsung today announced that it has solidified its leadership position in the server
memory market with a new 8GB product offering. Following the introduction of its
8GB Registered Dual In-line Memory Module (R-DIMM) in October, Samsung has now
increased the density of its Fully Buffered Dual In-line Memory Module product
line-up (FB-DIMM) to include 8GBs by adopting 80 nanometer 2Gb DDR for
high-speed servers.
OEMs that use Samsung’s high-density memory can increase the amount of installed
memory and keep slots in reserve for future upgrades. Samsung memory such as the
new 8GB FB-DIMM is ideal for space-constrained applications in blade and 1U
servers.

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a leader in advanced semiconductor technology,
today announced that it has solidified its leadership position in the server
memory market with a new 8GB product offering. Following the introduction of its
8GB Registered Dual In-line Memory Module (R-DIMM) in October, Samsung has now
increased the density of its Fully Buffered Dual In-line Memory Module product
line-up (FB-DIMM) to include 8GBs by adopting 80 nanometer 2Gb DDR for
high-speed servers. This represents a significant leap forward in advanced
server memory architecture.

OEMs that use Samsung’s high-density memory can increase the amount of installed
memory and keep slots in reserve for future upgrades. Samsung memory such as the
new 8GB FB-DIMM is ideal for space-constrained applications in blade and 1U
servers.

The FB-DIMM architecture overcomes the previous limitation of two-to-four module
capacity per channel. A FB-DIMM system’s DRAM module content can be increased to
as many as eight modules without reducing the speed. The new system can also
process an increased amount of data at the same time with the advanced memory
buffer (AMB) chip connecting each module in the system point to point. As a
result, the server market demand for high density DRAMs is expected to increase
significantly.

With Samsung’s high-density memory modules, designers can take full advantage of
increased memory support in the latest server operating system to maximize
performance. In addition, Samsung is offering next-generation memory solutions
such as the 8GB FB-DIMM to allow servers to benefit from ultimate memory density
and bandwidth.

Samsung’s complete product portfolio includes all variations of DRAM memory from
DDR to DDR2, and R-DIMMs to FB-DIMMs with densities ranging from 512MB all the
way to 8GBs.

The FB-DIMM standard has been adopted by JEDEC, providing designers a choice
between R-DIMM and FB-DIMM for next generation DRAM and system design. It is
designed to add an AMB chip to the existing DRAM module, enabling the DRAM
within the module to communicate with the system through this AMB chip.

Market research firm, Dataquest, has forecasted that the worldwide server DRAM
market will have an expected market size of 34.1B ln megabytes in 2006.
