Kingston Technology Europe Co LLP has recently announced that its 64GB, 32GB and 16GB Server Premier DDR5 4800MT/s Registered DIMMs have been validated on the 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processor (formerly codenamed Sapphire Rapids).

For over 35 years, Kingston has been the memory brand trusted by leading server manufacturers and the world’s largest data centres. Server Premier is Kingston’s industry standard memory solution sold by specification for use in white-box servers and is platform validated and qualified by leading motherboard/system manufacturers.

Featuring a locked BOM (Bill of Materials) to provide a consistent brand and revision of primary components (including DRAM, register, PMIC, SPD hub, thermal sensors, and PCB), all Kingston server memory solutions are 100% tested and undergo a rigorous dynamic burn-in process designed to catch early-life failures at the factory.

Intel’s 4th Gen Xeon Scalable Processor is their first to support next-generation DDR5 server-class memory and features eight memory channels, arranged in up to two DIMMs per channel or 16 DIMMs per CPU socket.

At 4800MT/s, each DDR5 Registered DIMM provides a peak bandwidth of 38.4GB/s, which when grouped in multi-channel configurations provides a marked increase in performance over DDR4-based servers.

DDR5 introduces advanced features for a more reliable and more efficient memory subsystem, including on-die ECC (ODECC), double the number of banks and double the burst length, improved refreshes, inclusion of a power management circuit (PMIC), additional temperature sensors, decision feedback equalisation (DFE) and dual independent 32-bit subchannels (40-bit for ECC).
