ASUS shows DC DIMM slot on Z390 motherboard

Double capacity DIMMs

Videocardz has published several pictures about the upcoming ASUS Z390 lineup. The biggest discovery was that the Maximus XI Extreme and Gene models will come with support for DC (double capacity) DIMMs.

The DC DIMM standard is ASUS' own creation and it allow for installing more memory modules on motherboards with limited space. At the moment it's hard to tell if the DC DIMM format is going to gain momentum. As with other “standards” that have been developed by ASUS in the past this one could end up in the history books as a nice idea as well. Apart from that Samsung has unveiled their first 32GB DDR4 memory modules, which already addresses this “issue” from another angle. So far Zadak and G.Skill are offering DC DIMM kits. If you look closely, you will see that the DC DIMM module is basically a bigger version of a regular DDR4 memory module.

Since DC DIMM module simply offer more space more DRAM chips can be soldered to the PCB. At this point in time we can’t tell if DC DIMMs are going to be supported exclusively on ASUS Z390 motherboards or if other vendors are going to adapt the feature.
