With the Xeon 7500/6500 processors in the x3850 X5, having more ranks gives better performance.The reason is because of the addressing scheme, which can extend the pages across ranks thereby making the pages effectively larger and therefore more page-hit cycles.
Another important guideline is to populate equivalent ranks per channel.
For instance, mixing one single-rank DIMM and one dual-rank DIMM in a channel should be avoided.
So it sounds like the main implication of different ranks will be the max # of ranks supported by the chipset...
Yes, it is partially driven by the chipset support.
In general, single-rank memory modules are built using x4 (“By 4”) DRAM chips and are more expensive than dual-rank memory modules (which are built using x8 DRAM chips); both module types have the same number of chips but the x4 DRAMs are more expensive than x8 DRAMs.
Dual-rank memory modules may limit future upgradeability and capacity of servers when using PC2700 or PC2-3200 memory.It culminates with a final on Monday to close the event.

PROGRAMMING NOTE: The event has less TV coverage than in year’s past, and the only time it will be on will be Monday night when the finals are shown starting at 7 p.m. However, Tiger Net will be on hand and we will bring you updates Saturday, Sunday and Monday, with scores and notes as they happen on our board and on Twitter.
