Netlist Introduces Lowest Cost and Highest Performance 32GB 4R RDIMM

32GB 4R PlanarX RDIMM Provides Highest Density, Most Cost Effective Memory Solution Across All Intel and AMD Server Platforms

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 14, 2012) - Netlist, Inc. (NASDAQ: NLST), a designer and manufacturer of high-performance memory subsystems, introduced its 32GB 4R PlanarX Registered DIMM (RDIMM). The innovative circuit design of PlanarX modules allows twice the number of smaller density monolithic DRAM components within standard DIMM dimensions compared to industry standard product which uses the more expensive DRAMs in dual die packages. Also by operating at 1.35vt., 32GB 4R PlanarX reduces power consumption in power-sensitive applications across all Intel and AMD based server platforms.

"Netlist is pleased to offer the 32GB PlanarX memory solution, allowing our customers to deploy the largest and the most cost-effective memory solution in the industry on all of their server platforms," said C.K. Hong, Chief Executive Officer of Netlist. "This innovative, lowest cost-per-bit product joins our lineup of other high density products including 16GB and 32GB HyperCloud HCDIMMs, enabling maximum memory densities at the highest performance on all leading edge dual processor servers."

The new 32GB 4R PlanarX module provides the most cost effective memory density by leveraging the Company's patented PlanarX technology and is supported on all server platforms. Supported quad processor servers include the Intel® Xeon® Processor E7 family, AMD® Opteron 6200 Series and Intel® Xeon® Processor E5 family. Supported dual processor server platforms include all generations of Intel® and AMD® processor based servers.
