Kingston squeezes the potential out of the Quad Channel-64 Gb or RAM in the Sandy Bridge E.

The new Intel platform, Sandy Bridge E, brings as a novelty the inclusion of the Quad Channel technology. This technology allows us to optimize the use of the different RAM modules installed in the equipment reducing latency times by sending the information to the RAM to several modules, not all to the same one. Thus, it is advisable to use as RAM modules as memory channels are allowed by our mainboard. The Sandy Bridge E will have a minimum of 4 sockets and a maximum of 8 sockets. If we install RAM modules of 8 GB to each of these modules we obtain 64 GB RAM DDR3 in one computer.

The manufacturer of Kingston memories carried a show of a kit of quad channel memory with 64 GB of capacity which is expected to be released after the Sandy Bridge-E come to the market.

The kit shown during a conference includes 8 DDR3 modules of high performance, each with 8GB of RAM and works with a basic frequency of 2,400MHZ with some unknown intervals for the moment.

It was a practical demonstration made by Kingston to show what they are capable of. In the domestic ambit there is little use for it, since the applications we use everyday work just as well whether we have 8 or 200 GB of RAM. Nevertheless, it can be very useful for the companies working with images of huge dimensions, videos, renders, etc.

The Intel Sandy Bridge-E processors and the main boards that come with them will be available from the mid-November. The initial collection of CPUs will include three models, two of which will use a 6-core design, while the third will pack only four computer cores.
