Kingston Technology, the world’s largest memory manufacturer has just demonstrated a 24GB total ValueRAM DDR3 memory solution running on Gigabyte GA-EX58 UD5 platform during the recent CeBIT event held in Germany. These memory configurations are made possible with six separate modules with each having 4GB DDR3 memory on board. During the demonstration, the memory manufacturer showcased a VMware workstation running with nine VM clients simultaneously while still able to have ample memory left for smooth performance.
According to Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager of Kingston Technology, each virtual machine was allocated with 2GB of memory space and they only utilized 21GB with still around 3GB left for other running applications. Powered by Intel 920 Core i7 CPU and further supported by NVIDIA graphics solution, the impressive performance will definitely exceed what is needed by real applications in both office and home environment.
As expected, the solution is not cheap at all. At a price of $2000 for all the DDR3 memory solution, it is too high to be affordable even for enterprise users with no real life usage requirement. Anyway, it is good as a marketing tool to attract media and users to continue push its next generation products to market space.
