DIMM

  • What is it?
    DIMM stands for dual in-line memory module; more commonly, it is called a RAM stick. It is a long, thin strip of printed circuit board containing RAM (random access memory) chips, with pins that connect it directly to a motherboard.

    DIMM has become the predominant type of memory modules on the market because it is natively 64 bits, allowing for faster data transfer than its 32-bit SIMM (single in-line memory module) predecessor, while consuming less power. Common types of DIMMs include UDIMMs (unbuffered DIMMs), FB-DIMMs (fully-buffered DIMMs), RDIMMs (registered DIMMs), LRDIMMs (load-reduced DIMMs), SO-DIMMs (small outline DIMMs), MicroDIMMs, and UniDIMMs.

  • Why do you need it?
    All the computing power in the world would be for nothing if you didn't have the memory to match your processor. Larger and faster memory means data can be moved from the hard drive to the CPU more quickly, eliminating bottlenecks and allowing the server to handle larger workloads. By choosing the latest DIMM products for your servers, you can improve overall server performance without breaking the bank.

  • How is GIGABYTE helpful?
    The majority of GIGABYTE servers, whether it's our H-Series High Density ServersG-Series GPU ServersR-Series Rack Servers, or S-Series Storage Servers, are outfitted with the latest RDIMM/LRDIMM DDR4. RDIMMs (registered DIMMs) place a buffer, known as a "register", between the memory module and the memory controller, reducing the strain on the controller and improving system stability. LRDIMMs (load-reduced DIMMs) are similar to RDIMMs but add an additional buffer to the address and data lines, further reducing the load on the controller while enhancing capacity and speed. DDR4 is the latest generation of "double data rate" high bandwidth DRAM, with higher data transfer speeds and lower voltage requirements than the previous generation. These excellent DIMM components help GIGABYTE servers achieve their maximum potential.

    What is a Server? A Tech Guide by GIGABYTE
    In the modern age, we enjoy an incredible amount of computing power—not because of any device that we own, but because of the servers we are connected to. They handle all our myriad requests, whether it is to send an email, play a game, or find a restaurant. They are the inventions that make our intrinsically connected age of digital information possible. But what, exactly, is a server? GIGABYTE Technology, an industry leader in high-performance servers, presents our latest Tech Guide. We delve into what a server is, how it works, and what exciting new breakthroughs GIGABYTE has made in the field of server solutions.
