Transcend Unveils 2GB DDR2-800 FB-DIMM for Apple Mac Pro

Transcend Information has announced the availability of latest memory innovation: a 2GB DDR2-800 Fully-Buffered DIMM (FB-DIMM) designed specifically for Apple's high-end Mac Pro system.

The Mac Pro is based on the powerful Quad-Core Intel Xeon 5400 platform, and has a total of eight FB-DIMM memory slots, of which only two are used in standard configuration (2 x 1GB FB-DIMMs). Transcend's 2GB FB-DIMM gives Mac Pro users the option to fully populate all eight slots for a total capacity of 16GB.

With the Mac Pro's efficient memory architecture that supports four simultaneous memory channels, Transcend's 800MHz frequency FB-DIMM delivers amazing bandwidth, allowing transfer rates up to 25GB per second. The 2GB DDR2-800 FB-DIMM for Mac Pro is also equipped with a high-performance Advanced Memory Buffer (AMB) and Error Correction Code (ECC), which monitors the data that gets transferred in and out of memory and performs real-time correction of any errors found. This feature is essential for performing mission-critical or compute-intensive tasks on a Mac Pro workstation, as it can greatly reduce the risk of computational errors, while at the same time increase overall system stability.

Austin Huang, Regional Head - Sales, SAARC & APAC, Transcend, said, "We are extremely proud to have pushed the performance standards of Transcend products yet once again with the launch of Transcend's 2GB DDR2-800 Fully-Buffered DIMM. We are confident that the users of Apple's Mac Pro systems will appreciate the excellent performance offered by this product that Transcend has specially engineered for them."

Transcend's 2GB DDR2-800 FB-DIMM module for Apple Mac Pro uses robust eight-layer PCBs that meet JEDEC (the Joint Electron Device Engineering Council) standards. Their additional speed and bandwidth along with generous 2GB capacity meet the rigorous requirements of hi-end computing. The 240-pin FB-DIMM is made of 18 high-quality 70 nm 128Mx8 DDR2 DRAM chips. Each chip is selected with the strictest quality and performance standards and is manufactured using small Fine-Pitch Ball Grid Array (FBGA) packages to assure better thermal dissipation, electrical efficiency and reliable computing quality. Thanks to the included high-quality heat sinks equipped with cooling fins and highly conductive thermal compound, Transcend's 2GB DDR2-800 FB-DIMM for Apple Mac Pro also offers superior heat diffusion characteristics which greatly increases reliability and lowers system temperatures.

Product Features:

  • Specially engineered for Apple Mac Pro 8-core systems

  • High performance Advanced Memory Buffer (AMB) allows simultaneous reads and writes

  • Built-in ECC (Error-Correction Code) ensures efficient data transfer

  • Premium multi-fin heat sinks with high-conductivity thermal compound for extra cooling efficiency

  • 100% tested for performance and reliability

The device comes with a warranty of three years and is priced at Rs 5,500(MRP)
