Netlist Demonstrates Industry's First 32GB HyperCloud Memory Module With Cirrascale's Blade Server at SC11

Cirrascale Server, With Future Intel® Xeon® E5 Family Processors, Demonstrates New 32GB Virtual Dual Rank HyperCloud RDIMM

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - Nov 15, 2011) - Netlist, Inc. (NASDAQ: NLST), a designer and manufacturer of high-performance memory subsystems, today is demonstrating the industry's first 32GB virtual dual rank (2vR) HyperCloud™ memory module. For this demonstration, Cirrascale's premiere blade server was configured with future Intel® Xeon® E5 family processors and HyperCloud memory. The demonstration of the 32GB HyperCloud module, which enables an unprecedented 768GB of RDIMM memory capacity in two-processor servers, successfully validates its readiness for use in next generation devices.

"Customers running memory intensive applications, such as electronic design automation and simulations used in the discovery of oil and gas deposits are requiring more computing power and, as a result, more memory," said Dave Driggers, founder, CEO and CTO of Cirrascale. "Netlist has developed an ideal solution that not only achieves higher performance, but also maximizes the use of existing technologies, allowing us to differentiate our server offering."

"For high-performance computing applications, HyperCloud memory offers performance advantages of more than 20 percent compared to alternative technologies in two-processor servers," said Steve McClure, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at Netlist. "Demonstrating the industry's first 32GB 2vR RDIMM operating with next generation server and processor technology solidifies our leadership position and highlights the benefits of Netlist's unique memory technologies over other memory solutions."

The 32GB 2vR HyperCloud RDIMM combines Netlist's patented rank multiplication and load reduction technology with widely available 4Gb DRAM. Netlist's innovative Planar-X technology further enables cost-effective packaging of 72 4Gb DRAMs into a standard RDIMM form-factor, producing the lowest-cost, highest-density DRAM server module in the market. This makes HyperCloud memory ideal for high performance computing (HPC) segments such as electronic design automation (EDA), oil and gas simulations, automotive and aerospace engineering, and financial services -- especially high-speed trading and simulation platforms.

Netlist is showcasing its 32GB 2vR HyperCloud RDIMM with Cirrascale at SC11 in booth number 2625 this week.
