vSphere Home Lab – Intel Desktop Board DQ67SW supports 32 GB

When you’re building a new home lab or adding a new white box to your private cloud, you want to put as much memory into your servers as you can. It’s the same story as in most of the datacenters, CPUs are idling while your ESX servers are running out of memory. Intel has released a new chipset that might be worth a closer look. The Intel Desktop Board DQ67SW supports four 240-pin DDR3 SDRAM Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) sockets which can hold 8 GB each. That means 32 GBs of system memory based on  DDR3 1333 or 1066 MHz DIMMs on one board.
Based on the latest Intel® Q67 Express Chipset with Intel® vPro™ technology, Intel® Desktop Board DQ67SW is designed to showcase the superior performance quality of the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor family, enhance office productivity, and lower the total cost of ownership for your business PCs with the newest Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) 7.0.

Designed with exceptional stability and compatibility, Intel Desktop Board DQ67SW equipped with the latest SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and SATA 6 Gb/s ports with RAID support. Dual independent display capability with DisplayPort and dual DVI ports.
