Netlist Hypercloud™ Memory Achieves Compatibility Certification on Intel Server Platforms From Computer Memory Test Labs

Successful Functional Testing on Intel Server Motherboards Confirms HyperCloud Memory Module RDIMM Compatibility

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Netlist, Inc. (Nasdaq: NLST), a designer and manufacturer of high-performance memory subsystems, today announced that its HyperCloud™ memory module has achieved independent industry functional certification from Computer Memory Test Labs (CMTL), a leading independent test lab for memory modules and motherboard compatibility testing. CMTL has confirmed Netlist's 8GB and 16GB HyperCloud memory products successful functionality on, and compatibility with, standard Intel Xeon 5600 server motherboards.

"Our independent testing of HyperCloud on an array of server platforms which includes Intel-based systems, confirms the memory technology's functional compatibility," said Raji Tannouri, general manager of CMTL. "HyperCloud now joins a limited list of memory products that have passed our extensive battery of certification tests."

HyperCloud memory technology was certified by conducting a test flow that uses DDR3 RDIMM functionality processes and standard 12-slot and 18-slot Intel Xeon5600 server motherboards. These tests verify HyperCloud's, the world's first 16GB 2 virtual rank (vRank) memory module for servers, ability to populate up to 288GB of dynamic random access memory (DRAM) in a single dual-processor server.

"The CMTL certification of both our 8GB and 16GB HyperCloud modules further reinforces the capabilities of our memory technology for end-user applications," said Steve McClure, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing for Netlist. "We continue to break through the memory capacity and performance bottlenecks which our Virtualization, Cloud, and High Performance Computing customers experience. Independent testing from established labs like CMTL is important in providing both end users and OEMs with third party validation of our HyperCloud memory's capabilities and compatibility."
