LRDIMM sales occur – and benchmarks
Inphi reported Q2 2012 results.
Inphi suggests sales of both 16GB LRDIMMs and 32GB LRDIMMs.
It is likely that most of these may be 32GB LRDIMMs, since 16GB LRDIMMs are non-viable vs. RDIMMs.
Inphi is shy about reporting benchmarks for LRDIMMs – saying they will be available second half of 2012.
Benchmarks for LRDIMMs should have been available prior to LRDIMM launch.
And Netlist after that – implications for Netlist
Inphi will report results on July 25, 2012.
