Netlist Introduces Hyperstream Low Latency Memory

Increased memory bandwidth, low latency DDR3 RDIMM delivers performance benefits for Financial Services, Oil and Gas and other high-performance computing applications

IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Netlist, Inc. (Nasdaq: NLST), a designer and manufacturer of high-performance memory subsystems, today announced availability of its HyperStream low latency memory modules. Netlist also announced today that a major financial services firm has completed evaluation and made its first purchase of HyperStream memory for deployment in its datacenter.

HyperStream is available from Netlist in standard 4GB and 8GB DDR3 1333 MT/s and 1440 MT/s RDIMM configurations, both LP (30mm) and VLP (19mm) form factors.

"Financial services, oil and gas, and other high-performance computing (HPC) end user application benchmarking shows the performance benefits HyperStream offers," said Steve McClure, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing for Netlist. "HyperStream's increased memory bandwidth and reduced latency can provide significant competitive advantage in financial markets and reduced runtimes in large grid HPC modeling."

HyperStream is now available from Dell's Software and Peripherals Group. Additional information is available by contacting a Dell Sales Representative. Dell part numbers for the 4GB and 8GB DDR3 1333 MT/s LP HyperStream RDIMMs are A5157004 and A5156990, respectively.

In addition, HyperStream 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 4GB and 8GB HyperStream memory products successful functionality on, and compatibility with, standard Intel Xeon 5500 and 5600 server motherboards.
