RE: M25 Memory



fixed

Wow what a great find. They do not have the 8GB modules yet that I wanted to max the system at 32GB but I can afford to by 16GB of Kingston memory and throw it away later when I can upgrade to 32GB and still save over $30G.

Ok IBM business partner, let's start negotiating now!

40K for 32GB. That is outrageous. I am hoping that there may be used
memory from an older Power 5+ system such as a 595 or so that would be
compatible with the new Power 6 M25.

Hey one can hope! But if any one know of a source for less expensive
memory?

Comments Mixing of different capacity modules is NOT supported


From their info I think the 32 GB isn't available at the moment ... may explain the price.
Here in Germany Kingston wants 492,- Euro per 8 GB Kit which gives 984,- Euro for
16 GB, which is far away from your price. And as far as I know, IBM service accepts memory from Kingston in their systems/service contracts.
