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.

    0 to 100 KPH in 3.3 Seconds! NTHU Builds Electric Formula Student Race Cars with GIGABYTE

    Representing Hsinchu’s Tsing Hua University, NTHU Racing is one of Taiwan’s top Formula Student racing teams. In 2019, its electric formula student race car, the “TH04”, took second place in Formula SAE Japan. In August of 2022, its new and improved, 100% manufactured in Taiwan “TH06” will race for the gold in Formula Student Germany. Tsing Hua University built the “TH06” using GIGABYTE Technology’s W771-Z00 and W331-Z00 Tower Server/Workstation products. From finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling and analysis during the design phase, to racing simulations and experimenting with new tech during the testing phase, GIGABYTE servers provided NTHU Racing with the processing power and versatility it needed to engineer a high-performing electric vehicle that can go from 0 to 100 kph in 3.3 seconds—almost on par with Tesla’s Model S, which can go from 0 to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds.
