Kingston Server Premier DDR5 RDIMMs Launched

Validation on 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processors

Earlier today, the 64GB, 32GB, and 16GB Server Premier DDR5 4800MT/s were introduced by Kingston Technology Europe Co LLP, a subsidiary of Kingston Technology Company, Inc. The 4th generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processor was used to validate these registered DIMMs, which were formerly codenamed Sapphire Rapids.

Server Premier Memory

Server Premier is the industry-standard memory product from Kingston that is offered in accordance with specifications for usage in white-box servers. It has received platform validation and qualification from top motherboard and system makers. All Kingston server memory solutions go through a rigorous dynamic burn-in process designed to catch early-life failures at the factory and have a locked Bill of Materials to provide a consistent brand and revision of primary components, including DRAM, register, PMIC, SPD hub, thermal sensors, and PCB.

Features

Locked Bill of Materials (BOM), Part Change Notifications (PCN) – 90 days, 8Q roadmap visibility, server platform validation, leading server motherboard manufacturer qualification and limited lifetime warranty are some of the characteristics of Server Premier. It also provides industry-leading service and support.

Working With Intel

The 4th Generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processors will support next-generation DDR5 server-class memory for the first time and has eight memory channels with a maximum of two DIMMs per channel, or 16 DIMMs per CPU socket. Each DDR5 Registered DIMM has a peak bandwidth of 38.4GB/s @ 4800MT/s, which, when combined in multi-channel setups, yields a significant performance improvement over DDR4-based servers.

This may also extend to other Intel processors in future. On-die ECC (ODECC), doubling the number of banks and burst length, improved refreshes, the addition of a power management circuit (PMIC), more temperature sensors, decision feedback equalisation (DFE), and dual independent 32-bit subchannels are just a few of the advanced features that DDR5 introduces for a more dependable and efficient memory subsystem (40-bit for ECC).
