Product Overview of IBM 46C7488 8GB Memory

The IBM 46C7488 is a type of computer memory that is designed to enhance the performance and efficiency of computer systems. It is a high-speed memory module that is commonly used in server and workstation systems. This article will provide an in-depth explanation of the features and specifications of the IBM 46C7488 memory, including its capacity, speed, technology, form factor, and other key characteristics.

Capacity of IBM 46C7488 Memory

The IBM 46C7488 memory has a capacity of 8GB, which means that it can store up to 8 billion bytes of data. This memory capacity is ideal for high-performance computing tasks, such as data analysis, scientific simulations, and virtualization. The memory capacity is determined by the number of memory chips installed on the memory module. In the case of IBM 46C7488, the memory module has eight memory chips, each with a capacity of 1GB.

Speed of IBM 46C7488 Memory

The speed of memory is measured in MHz, and it determines how fast the memory can read and write data. IBM 46C7488 memory has a speed of 1066MHz, which means that it can read and write data at a rate of 1066 million cycles per second. This high speed is essential for high-performance computing tasks that require fast data access and transfer rates. The memory speed is determined by the memory controller, which is the component that manages the flow of data between the memory and the CPU.

Technology of IBM 46C7488 Memory

IBM 46C7488 memory uses DDR3 SDRAM technology, which is the third generation of Double Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random-Access Memory (SDRAM). DDR3 SDRAM is an improvement over the previous generation, DDR2 SDRAM, and it offers faster data transfer rates, lower power consumption, and higher memory capacities. DDR3 SDRAM is also backward compatible with DDR2 SDRAM, which means that it can be used with motherboards that support DDR2 SDRAM.

Form Factor of IBM 46C7488 Memory

The form factor of memory refers to its physical size and shape, and it determines how the memory module fits into the computer system. IBM 46C7488 memory has a form factor of RDIMM (Registered Dual In-Line Memory Module), which means that it has a register that buffers the control signals between the memory and the CPU. The RDIMM form factor is commonly used in server and workstation systems that require high memory capacity and reliability.

Rank of IBM 46C7488 Memory

The rank of memory refers to the number of memory modules that can be accessed simultaneously by the memory controller. IBM 46C7488 memory has a quad rank, which means that it has four ranks on a single memory module. The quad rank design allows the memory controller to access a large amount of memory with fewer memory modules, which reduces the cost and complexity of the memory subsystem.

ECC of IBM 46C7488 Memory

ECC (Error Correction Code) is a feature of memory that detects and corrects errors that occur during data transfer. IBM 46C7488 memory has ECC support, which means that it can detect and correct single-bit errors and detect multi-bit errors. ECC is essential for mission-critical applications that require high data reliability and accuracy.

CL of IBM 46C7488 Memory

CL (Column Access Strobe Latency) is a measure of the delay between the memory controller requesting data and the memory module returning the data. IBM 46C7488 memory has a CL of 7, which means that it has a latency of 7 clock cycles. A lower CL value indicates faster memory access and transfer rates.

PC3-8500 memory

Are you looking for the higher bandwidth option in the SDRAM sequence? Look no further as the DDR3 (Double Data Rate 3) is one such device. A higher speed predecessor to DDR2, the DDR3 Dynamic Random Access Memory modules improved data transfer rates, better voltage handling, and signal integrity. Thus, if you're looking for an upgrade in your daily life PC or a business server room, these PC3-8500 DDR3 RAMs can be the ideal choice.

PC3 8500 RAM is far beyond the expectation due to faster data transfer rates and higher memory clock speeds. Thus, eliminating the bandwidth problems now, keep your hands on the PC3 RAMs.

PC3-8500 Reduces The Supply Voltage:

Are you looking for the PC3 8500 memory? There must be a solid reason behind the fact: improved virtualization, faster data transfer speeds, higher bandwidth peak rates, and lesser supply of voltage. Yes! The DDR3 memory module utilizes lesser voltage than its predecessors and is now regarded as the efficient RAM module to fit in the devices. The voltage is reduced to 1.5 volts as compared to 1.8V.

Pre-Fetch Buffering Increased the Operation Speed:

Overall, the PC3-8500 DDR3 has paved the way for faster operational speed by utilizing the prefetch option. The prefetch buffer is increased up to 8 bits with an 8n architecture to offer a winning combination in 4 clock cycles. Thus, no matter if you're choosing the 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, 96GB, 128GB, or 256GB, DDR3 SDRAMs have much to offer for your servers.

PC3 8500 RAM utilizes Four Mode Registers:

Not only PC3 8500 but all the DDR3 SDRAMs now utilize the four-mode registers which were not possible in the previous generation DDR2. The CAS read and write latency support further boosts the performance for all four registers.

Apart from the mode registers, the DDR3 SDRAM includes the x4, x8, and x16 data output configurations, which were also a significant part of the previous generation. One major difference lies in the data banks, which are eight in number for the DDR3, ensuring that the business centers and central server rooms have better performance.

On-Die Termination Supported:

These PC3 8500 SDRAMs now support the On-die termination as well. This way, the PCB circuit layout will hold the correct termination and will not confine or limit the data transfer speeds.

Muli-Pin Configuration:

Most of the tech-savvies are not happy with the low-pin configuration in the DDR and DDR2. In comparison, that's not the case with these PC3 DDR3 RAMs, as it holds the 240+ pin configuration overall.

Why buy from ALLHDD?
