Increase the processing power of your ThinkServer dual-processor system's with Intel® Xeon® processors. Boost your system’s performance for advanced applications, technical computing, multi-thread applications and multitasking.

Intel® Xeon® processor with Nehalem technology
The new processor technology for the second generation of ThinkServer

  • Clock speeds up to 2.53 GHz
  • Increased parallelism, enhanced algorithms
  • Simultaneous Multi-Threading (SMT)
  • Large caches and increased memory bandwidth
  • Extremely power-efficient
  • Integrated DDR3 memory controller
NEW ThinkServer DDR3 RDIMM memory is the next generation of SDRAM memory to take advantage of Intel® Nehalem technology. DDR3 memory enables high I/O data transfer rates and reduces power consumption over DDR2 technology. Faster data transfer rates mean higher performance, and with DDR3 memory this is achieved without straining the system's power needs.

In order for your ThinkServer solution to reach peak performance, you’ll need ThinkServer Memory. Nothing can compare to the reliability of ThinkServer memory.

Features and benefits:

  • Test-proven 100% compatible on listed ThinkServer Systems
  • Meets stringent ThinkServer reliability standards.
  • Higher-bandwidth performance increase, up to 1333MHz per second
  • Performance increase at low power input (1.5V power supply)
  • Enhanced low-power features conserves energy
  • 2GB and 4GB memory support advanced ECC and memory mirroring
  • Lenovo limited warranty
  • Authenticity seal on every RDIMM

Memory is one of the most vital components to keep your ThinkServer system operating at maximum performance. Push the boundaries of productivity for all of your server applications — whether it’s Web hosting, transactions, e-commerce, or file and printing services. ThinkServer DDR2 memory upgrades boost overall performance to meet increasing application needs while being a cost-effective solution

PC2-6400 CL6 DDR2 SDRAM memory is intended for customers looking to improve the overall performance of single-processor TS100 and RS110 ThinkServer systems

PC2-5300 CL5 DDR2 FBDIMM memory provides customers with the ability to improve the overall performance of dual-processor TD100, TD100x and RD120 ThinkServer systems, and also provides additional data integrity with advanced ECC, memory mirroring and memory spare technologies.
