  IRVINE, CA, Nov 12 (Marketwire) -- 
Netlist, Inc. (NASDAQ: NLST), a leading provider of high performance
memory solutions for the cloud computing market, will demonstrate a
comprehensive performance benchmark of its flagship memory product,
HyperCloud(TM) (HCDIMM), at the SuperComputing Conference.

    The demo will consist of a comparison of two Intel Romley-based servers
both running SANDRA 2012 by SiSoftware. SANDRA benchmark measures
sustained memory bandwidth, not burst or peak, and is therefore directly
applicable to many HPC software programs where data throughput is
paramount. One server will be equipped with 768GB of the industry
standard 1333MHz 32GB LRDIMMs and the second server with the same amount
of HyperCloud 32GB HCDIMMs. 

    The benchmark results show a 39% greater throughput for the server with
HyperCloud memory compared to the server equipped with LRDIMMs. Since
both systems ran SANDRA fully loaded with three DIMMs per memory channel
at the same frequency of 1333MHz, the 39% advantage can clearly be
attributed to the lower latency and higher performance of the HyperCloud
memory system.

    HyperCloud memory utilizes a distributed buffer architecture to reduce
latency and incorporates Netlist's patented rank multiplication and load
reduction technologies. Rank multiplication enables more DRAM capacity
and load reduction reduces the loading to the memory interface allowing
HCDIMMs to run at faster speeds at maximum capacity. 

    "As companies today increasingly process and capitalize on big data,
there's an increasing need for more memory in servers. However, memory
performance in these servers is not keeping pace with processor
technology, creating a high density memory cliff," said C.K. Hong, CEO of
Netlist. "HyperCloud breaks this bottleneck and allows servers to operate
at their peak potential. By doing so, HyperCloud increases performances
of applications in such key areas as securities trading, analytics,
virtualization, and simulation."

    HyperCloud is shipping in volume with the world's top three selling
servers from IBM and HP, and is implemented across a number of
high-performance computing applications in industries such as electronic
design automation, financial services, oil & gas, aerospace and
automotive.
