Kingston Technology Ships Memory Solutions for Growing  x86 and ARM Microserver Markets
        1.35v ECC SO-DIMMs, Unregistered DIMMs Available in 1600MHz, 1333MHz Frequencies and 8GB, 4GB Capacities

Hsinchu, Taiwan – July 11, 2013-  Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it is shipping server memory solutions for microservers, a new and growing segment of the server market. Kingston® has both 1.35v low-voltage ECC SO-DIMMs and unregistered DIMMs in 1600MHz and 1333MHz frequencies to support both x86 or ARM-based processors and system-on-chip (SoC) designs.

Microservers are quickly gaining in popularity as companies seek powerful, yet more energy- and physical-space efficient solutions that serve specific data center needs or cloud applications. Examples include web and cloud hosting, and big data where terabytes or petabytes of information sets are analyzed per second. Kingston’s low-voltage, high-performing microserver memory modules are the perfect match to help accomplish these tasks.

“New low power SoC designs such as Intel’s Avoton and ARM-based designs from Calxeda, Applied Micro and Marvell have allowed early adopters to bring microservers to the server market,” said Ann Bai, DRAM Sales Director, APAC region, Kingston. “As the microserver ecosystem and marketplace develops and grows, we are here to serve our partners and customers with low-power, high-performance memory offerings.”

Kingston is celebrating 25 years in the memory industry. The company was founded on October 17, 1987, and has grown to become the largest third-party memory manufacturer in the world. The 25th anniversary video and information including a timeline of Kingston’s history can be found here. In addition, HyperX memory is celebrating its 10th anniversary. The first HyperX high-performance memory module was released in November 2002.

One thought on “Kingston ships memory solutions for x86 and ARM microserver markets”
  1. I wonder, when the memory company try harder to give us more aggressive timings. I remmeber that the Mushkin Enhanced DDR400 memory have a 2-2-2-5 timings, witch make it kinda fast and powerfull memory. Given todays timings that are way, way slower it seems that the memory speed did not improved single bit. It is nice to have a “1600MHz” DDR dimms, but the real freqency is quite different AND the timings are more that 4x worser compared to the DDR 400 module, that is 4x “slower” by the fake marketing numbers.

    So, unless the “1600MHz DDR” have timings 8-8-8-20 (CAS, TRP, TRCD, TRAS) – then it is actually slower to the old good Winbond Mushkin Enhanced rams with 2-2-2-5 timings 🙂

    (IIRC TRAS 11 was faster settings and works, because it mean less refreshes = more time to acess the ram itself… so not all timings are “the lower the better” – TRAS is different)
