Netlist Demonstrates Superiority of HyperCloud Memory Over

Netlist Demonstrates Superiority of HyperCloud Memory Over LRDIMM at
SuperComputing 2012 
Memory Shootout at SC '12 
Memory Performance Benchmark to Take Place at Booth # 1409 
IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/12/12 --   Netlist, Inc. (NASDAQ:
NLST), a leading provider of high performance memory solutions for
the cloud computing market, will demonstrate a comprehensive
performance benchmark of its flagship memory product, HyperCloud(TM)
(HCDIMM), at the SuperComputing Conference. 
The demo will consist of a comparison of two Intel Romley-based
servers both running SANDRA 2012 by SiSoftware. SANDRA benchmark
measures sustained memory bandwidth, not burst or peak, and is
therefore directly applicable to many HPC software programs where
data throughput is paramount. One server will be equipped with 768GB
of the industry standard 1333MHz 32GB LRDIMMs and the second server
with the same amount of HyperCloud 32GB HCDIMMs.  
The benchmark results show a 39% greater throughput for the server
with HyperCloud memory compared to the server equipped with LRDIMMs.
Since both systems ran SANDRA fully loaded with three DIMMs per
memory channel at the same frequency of 1333MHz, the 39% advantage
can clearly be attributed to the lower latency and higher performance
of the HyperCloud memory system. 
HyperCloud memory utilizes a distributed buffer architecture to
reduce latency and incorporates Netlist's patented rank
multiplication and load reduction technologies. Rank multiplication
enables more DRAM capacity and load reduction reduces the loading to
the memory interface allowing HCDIMMs to run at faster speeds at
maximum capacity.  
"As companies today increasingly process and capitalize on big data,
there's an increasing need for more memory in servers. However,
memory performance in these servers is not keeping pace with
processor technology, creating a high density memory cliff," said
C.K. Hong, CEO of Netlist. "HyperCloud breaks this bottleneck and
allows servers to operate at their peak potential. By doing so,
HyperCloud increases performances of applications in such key areas
as securities trading, analytics, virtualization, and simulation." 
HyperCloud is shipping in volume with the world's top three selling
servers from IBM and HP, and is implemented across a number of
high-performance computing applications in industries such as
electronic design automation, financial services, oil & gas,
aerospace and automotive.
