Boise, ID, and Glasgow, UK, 12 September, 2013 - Crucial, a leading global
brand of memory and server memory, today announced the 64GB Crucial DDR3L
Load-Reduced DIMMs (LRDIMMs) for servers, which enable more DIMMs per channel
for up to twice the installed memory capacity per server. Additionally, these
modules offer up to a 35 percent increase in memory bandwidth per server
compared to standard DIMMs, and eliminate the channel ranking limitation of
standard DDR3 registered DIMMs. The Crucial DDR3L LRDIMMs is designed for IT
professionals that manage high-end server environments with demanding

The 64GB Crucial DDR3L LRDIMMs operates using 1.35V, unlike the 1.5V common in
DDR3 RDIMMs, making the new module more energy-efficient and cost-effective,
especially in large deployments. Since Crucial LRDIMMs transmit power in a more
efficient manner to the CPU (via the data path buffer), they use less voltage,
which allows for additional power savings. These new memory modules are also
compatible with OEM servers and warranties, allowing users to upgrade their
existing server infrastructures without having to purchase an entirely new
system. Crucial LRDIMMs fully support the latest Intel(r) Xeon(r) processor E5

'For memory-intensive server applications such as cloud computing,
virtualization, and in-memory databases, optimizing the capabilities of new or
existing hardware is by far a more cost-effective solution than purchasing
additional servers,' said Michael Moreland, worldwide DRAM product marketing
manager, Crucial. 'The new 64GB Crucial LRDIMMs allow servers to reach the
maximum amount of installed memory possible, which can enable dramatic
performance gains in memory bandwidth and overall server productivity, all
while reducing power costs relative to adding additional servers.' 

Crucial DDR3L LRDIMMs server memory is halogen-free and RoHS compliant.
Available in densities up to 64GB and kits up to 192GB, the 64GB LRDIMM will be
available to purchase in early calendar Q4 2013. Crucial LRDIMMs are backed by
a limited lifetime warranty and are rigorously tested to meet or exceed the
high-quality performance specifications customers have come to expect from
Crucial. As a brand of Micron, one of the largest manufacturers of DRAM in the
world, Crucial engineers work to design, refine, test, manufacture, and support
an extensive line of memory modules. For more information about Crucial server
