Much of the focus upon RAM these days is the ever-increasing speed of the various rival technologies: with DDR-II just around the corner and RDRAM continuously scaling further in clock speed, it's no wonder that performance and bandwidth are the main talking points.

The typical DIMM, and indeed a RIMM, have not changed much over the past few years. Perhaps the most visible evolution is the heatspreader, which is present on all RIMMs, and some high-performance DDR SDRAM DIMMs, designed to assist cooling.

It would not be difficult to come up with the conclusion that DRAM module development is not going anywhere very fast. This however, is not the case, especially in the server market.
