Hmmm if its clocked at 1066 (or defaulted at) id definatly pick up some eventually when they become more main stream.
Hynix Semiconductor today announced the validation of the HMT31GR7AUP4C, the worldâ€™s first MetaRAM based 8 GB 2-rank DDR3 RDIMM, on Intelâ€™s Nehalem CPU based Tylersburg-EP platform
When fully populated with 3 DIMMs per channel, the Hynix 8 GB RDIMM operates at 1066 MHz speed. Competing industry standard modules exhibit performance degradation to 800 MHz when operating under full load. The Hynix 8 GB DDR3 RDIMM enables a maximum capacity of 144 GB operating at 1066 MHz in a dual processor Tylersburg-EP platform, not possible with industry standard DIMMs.
Hynix 8 GB DDR3 RDIMM satisfies the market demand for high performance server memory and expects to secure a leading position in this market. The 16 GB DDR3 RDIMM based on MetaRAM technology is slated for introduction in the third quarter of this year. The emerging LR-DIMM (Load Reduced-DIMM), the future standard for memory buffer, is expected to adopt performance objectives similar to MetaRAM.
Volume production of the 8 GB DDR3 2-Rank RDIMM will begin from second quarter of this year. Hynix also plans to receive Intel validation on 8 GB DDR3 RDIMM operating at 1333 MHz in the first half of this year.
