Micron this week announced that it had begun sampling of its 256 GB multiplexer combined (MCR) DIMMs, the company's highest-capacity memory modules to date. These brand-new DDR5-based MCRDIMMs are aimed at next-generation servers, particularly those powered by Intel's Xeon Scalable 'Granite Rapids' processors that are set to support 12 or 24 memory slots per socket. Usage of these modules can enable datacenter machines with 3 TB or 6 TB of memory, with the combined ranks allowing for effect data rates of DDR5-8800. "We also started sampling our 256 GB MCRDIMM module, which further enhances performance and increases DRAM content per server," said Sanjay Mehrotra, chief executive of Micron, in prepared remarks for the company's earnings call this week. In addition to announcing sampling of these modules...
