  1. Samsung has unveiled a new heavyweight DRAM module claimed to be the industry's "highest-density monolithic DDR3 device." Engineered for use in high-end servers, the 32GB stick is made with 36 dual-die 40nm 4Gb DDR3 chips. This announcement follows roughly one year after the company unveiled its 50nm 2Gb-based 16GB RDIMM, and the new 32GB module reportedly offers equal, if not more performance, with little increase in power consumption.

    Holy Cow! I wasn't even aware that 16GB RAM modules were available. Imagine the day when 32GB modules will be the standard in home PCs... *drifts off to fantasy land*

    Super! Will this be 40nm, DDR3, ECC >> price fixed <<, server memory?

    I saw the name "Toshiba" mentioned, and I think that's a fair question.

    All I have to say is hurry up with the desktop version!

    YAY!

    But seriously get that out then work on mobos (for desktops) that can handle upwards of 128 gigs ram...

    You can never have to much ram...

    As long as your board can take it.
  6. yep. would be fun playing vcop 2, and using TC++ ;)
