Elpida 16GB FB DIMM Memory

Elpida on Tuesday claims to have broken a record by becoming the first memory manufacturer to develop 16-gigabyte fully buffered DIMM (FB-DIMM) RAM sticks, significantly expanding the memory ceiling for pro workstations and servers. The DDR2-based creation is twice as capacious as still-rare 8GB sticks and relies on a unique integrated packaging to fit the memory without creating excess. Although 16GB, the RAM is unusually thin at 0.3in deep and has the same power needs as a simpler 8GB stick.

The Japan-based memory producer declines to price the memory but says it will offer versions that run at 667MHz and 800MHz to accommodate different generations of systems, most of which are based on Intel's Xeon processors. Samples of the memory will be delivered to PC builders later in August, with the new RAM entering mass production during the fall.
