why in the world would they pay 7 times the amount for the same capacity?
anyone in the server world would be buying regestered memory anyway so that's not an argument.
What I've read is that the chips used in 4GB unbuffered sticks are still quite expensive. Until they can get the costs down, the jump is going to be huge.
A 3 x 4GB set of Crucial Registered/ECC DDR3 goes for about $350, for comparison.
