Transcend Information, one of the world's top makers of memory modules, this week unveiled its first memory sticks with thermal sensors aimed at servers and workstations. Thermal sensors will memory reliability, efficiency, and overall system stability when coupled with platforms that support monitoring of temperatures as well as real-time adjustments of memory speed.
For high-end systems that constantly process huge amounts of data under non-stop operating conditions, microprocessor speed regulation and various other techniques to prevent overheating have become increasingly important in hardware design. However, issues with overheating or malfunction of memory modules are not rare. In order to prevent such problems and also enter new markets, Transcend began to offer server-grade DDR3 modules that come equipped with an advanced thermal sensor. This allows motherboard chipsets to monitor the exact temperature of each memory module and adjust the memory load accordingly, ensuring the best possible system performance while at the same time protecting the DRAM modules from potentially catastrophe failure and compromised system stability.
Transcend’s thermal sensor equipped DDR3 memory modules include ECC DIMMs and Registered DIMMs in both 1333MHz and 1066MHz versions, all of which comply with JEDEC standards.
Each Transcend memory module undergoes rigorous testing to ensure the best performance possible, and comes with a lifetime warranty and the comprehensive support of Transcend’s renowned global service network.
