IDT’s DDR4 chipset qualified for latest Intel Xeon; white paper explains

September 11, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
Integrated Device Technology has achieved OEM and memory supplier qualification of its DDR4 chipset on enterprise servers designed with the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3 family. DDR4 RDIMM and LRDIMM modules featuring IDT registers and data buffers are now available from memory suppliers.

IDT's DDR4 server memory interface chipsets—composed of registers, data buffers and temperature sensors—support the new generation of double-data rate (DDR) technologies, enabling faster data rates at higher densities on registered dual inline memory modules (RDIMMs) and load-reduced DIMMS (LRDIMMs) supported by the new Intel Xeon product family.

IDT announced in July that it had shipped more than 1 million of its DDR4 registers, primarily for qualification of modules using its DDR4 chipset. IDT DDR4 products include a software suite that enables server and storage manufacturers to validate and optimise their platforms.

“Servers based on the Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processor family with DDR4 memory modules using the IDT chipset deliver performance and power returns that are compelling and immediate across a host of applications and workloads,” said Rami Sethi, vice president and general manager, Memory Interface Products Division at IDT. “Having been the lead driver of DDR4 memory interface devices from specification to silicon and now to platform launch, we are pleased to see the industry transition underway.”

IDT has issued a white paper that expands on how DDR4 delivers increased data throughput – you can download “ DDR4 LRDIMMs For Both Memory Capacity and Speed here.
