All Bow Down Before the Mighty 16GB FB-DIMM!


Elpida Memory, Inc. based in Japan announced that it is going to launch a 16-gigabyte Fully Buffered DIMM (FB-DIMM), the world's largest capacity. It is based on its own unique integrated packaging technology (stacked FBGA or sFBGA) with 2-gigabit DDR2 SDRAM. Elpida has achieved development of FB-DIMM products that feature an ultra thin thickness of 7.7mm.

The chip was designed with the ultra high-end servers and workstation market in mind.

Sample shipments of the new 16-gigabyte FB-DIMM will begin later this month. Mass production is expected to get underway in the 4Q of 2008.

Now if they would just come up with 8 Gig DDR3 sticks for my next desktop build, I’d be very happy indeed!
