Single 8GB DDR3 module running on Nehalem setup newzhunter Apr 4th, 08, 02:02 PM #1







About MetaRAM

The MetaRAM technology allows the use of mainstream lower cost DRAM components in the manufacture of the next generation high density DIMMs, without increasing the number of memory ranks or the load on the CPU. The MetaSDRAM chipset consists of flow controllers and an access manager which sit between the memory controller and the DRAM. It enables up to four times more mainstream DRAMs to be integrated into the DIMM without the need for any system level hardware or software changes. The chipset makes multiple DRAMs look like a larger capacity DRAM to the memory controller resulting in high capacity memory modules that circumvent the normal limitations of the memory controller.

Nehalem integrated memory controller supports 3 channels per socket and each channel supports 2 DIMMs so each socket can have up to 6 DIMMs. In this case, there are 2 sockets so there are 12 DIMMs altogether. 12 x 8GB = 96GB of DDR3

That is for server segment, however for high end desktop Bloomfield its possible to have a maximum of 48GB DDR3...

Haha... 64 bits has the potential to support up to 16exa byte of memory...


2^64... Use ur calculator and you know how big that number is...
