As multi-core systems gain popularity for their increased computing power at low-cost, the rest of the architecture must be kept in balance, such as the memory subsystem. Many existing memory subsystems can suffer from scalability issues and show memory performance degradation with more than one process running. To address these scalability issues, Fully-Buffered DIMMs have recently been introduced. In this paper, the authors present an initial performance evaluation of the next-generation multi-core Intel platform by evaluating the FB-DIMM-based memory subsystem and the associated InfiniBand performance.
