HCDIMM outperforms LRDIMM when benchmarked on the latest generation Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 motherboard.

Netlist, Inc. (NASDAQ: NLST) has announced that HyperCloud HCDIMM outperforms Load Reduced DIMMs (LRDIMM) when benchmarked on the latest generation Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 motherboard, configured with 384GB system memory.

"Our independent testing confirms that HCDIMM performance exceeded LRDIMM in the key metrics of Aggregate Memory Bandwidth by 17.5 percent, Time to Copy by 17.6 percent, and Cache Memory Bandwidth by almost 15 percent on a fully populated 24 DIMM, 384GB configured system," said Raji Tannouri, General Manager of CMTL.

According to Netlist, benchmarks were performed by independent compatibility test lab, Computer Memory Test Labs (CMTL). HCDIMM's Distributed Architecture results in reduced data skew and latency for superior memory bandwidth compared to LRDIMMs single memory buffer implementation.

"HCDIMM support for the highest capacity and speed configurations enables today’s key applications such as financial trading, big data analytics, virtualization, and simulation applications  such as EDA, FEA, CFD, CED to perform with optimal efficiency,” said Devon Park, Vice President of Marketing for Netlist.

Benchmark tests were performed using SiSoftware’s Sandra Lite benchmarking suite under identical test conditions with a SuperMicro X9DR6-LN4+ motherboard, dual Intel Xeon E5-2650L processors running at 1.8GHz and 384GB HCDIMM and LRDIMM.

According to Netlist, critical software applications will see faster run times resulting in increased revenue generation, quicker time to market, and reduced Operational Expenses (OPEX) through more efficient hardware, software and personnel utilization.
