I'm more of a desktop guy and I got the Pro's (WRX80) confused with the non Pro's (sTRX40) which do have 256GB max capacity. The Pro's weren't really my jam until this article. I'm getting up to speed though. Tom's and Anandtech are big helps.

Still not quite right ... your specs are from way back to first and second gen ... 3rd gen desktop is 1 TB and the 3rd gen "pro" versions are 2TB, (but I guess 4TB "in theory" like the other guy said). The "pro" versions just straddle the space between EPYC and regular desktop TR

What TR's have 256 and 512GB capacity limits?

Figure you would know because that was your claim. I thought 1st gen was limited to 512gb, and maybe second gen.
I do know. That's why I said it. It's not a claim. It's fact. You don't know this area as well as your think. You shouldn't be saying people are wrong without doing research first, especially with how late your last reply came.

I got up to speed on Zen 3 TR PRO within an hour of this article was published when I mistakenly confused the new TR PRO with the non-PRO's. You should do the same with TR parts so next time you can speak confidently before you try to correct someone.

The max theoretical RAM for TR is 1TB. It is limited by module density for unbuffered RAM, at the motherboard level.
