Intel may stop pushing FB-DIMM for server

Posted by DigiTimes

Intel's upcoming 5100 chipset (San Clemente), part of the company's 2-way server platform Cranberry Lake, is expected to support RDIMM (registered DIMM) memory modules instead of FB-DIMM (fully buffered DIMM). With San Clemente returning to support RDIMM, plus the fact that Intel will launch a technology similar to AMD's on-CPU memory controller design in its Nehalem processor series, there is a possibility that Intel will stop pushing FB-DIMM, according to sources at server makers.
