Introducing LRDIMM – A New Class of Memory Modules
Release Date:January 17, 2012
This paper introduces the LRDIMM, a new type of memory module for high capacity servers and high-performance computing platforms. LRDIMM is an abbreviation for Load Reduced Dual Inline Memory Module, the newest type of DIMM supporting DDR3 SDRAM main memory. The LRDIMM is fully pin compatible with existing JEDEC-standard DDR3 DIMM sockets, and supports higher system memory capacities when enabled in the system BIOS.
