Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced memory technology, today announced that it is the first in the industry to start mass producing 32 gigabyte (GB) memory modules, essential for cloud computing and advanced server systems, using 30 nanometer (nm) class* four gigabit (Gb) DDR3 DRAM chips.

“With this module, Samsung has secured the highest level of product and solution competitiveness in the DRAM market for PC, server and mobile applications,” said Wanhoon Hong, executive vice president, memory sales & marketing, Samsung Electronics. “We also plan to ship more energy-efficient 4Gb DDR3 DRAM based on 20nm-class* process technology in the second half of this year, which will significantly expand the rapidly growing market for green IT memory solutions. Moreover, we intend to keep delivering the greenest memory products with optimal performance for customers,” he added.

That shit'll probably cost you like $2k a piece, if not some larger completely insane price.

WTH? :O

Did they mean to write 32GiB = 4GB or did they really manage to cram 32GB on a single stick :O

A 16GB module costs ~$550, I'd expect these to possibly go for around ~$1200.

Consumer Chipset never support memory above 4GB per DiMM. This has to change. we need Non-ecc 8GB ones !

Sweet. Time to max out a 64-slot 8-way Xeon box (and Server 2008 R2) with 2TB of RAM!

Get a fast enough hard drive and you could cash a whole disk or a sizeable portion to the ram, that would give a huge increase in system responsiveness.

wrong, 8 gb SODIMM already exist and officially supported by consumer motherboards
ASUS P8H67-I Deluxe and ZOTAC Z68ITX-B-E support 8gb SODIMM (and have 2 slots)

non-ecc 8gb DIMM sticks do not exists, but manufacturers say they are already supported by latest generetaion INTEL and AMD platforms (sandy bridge and amd chipsets)
ASUS P8H67-I, ECS H67H2-I, ZOTAC H67ITX-A-E, INTEL DH67CF, INTEL DH67CF

* According to Intel® SPEC, the Max. 32GB memory capacity can be supported with DIMMs of 8GB (or above). ASUS will update QVL once the DIMMs are available on the market.

no 8 GB SODIMM did not exist. (8x1 GB didn't exist). SODIMM is notebook memory, there is no way SODIMM get 8GB sooner than desktops. :roll:
Anything 8GB are above are ECC memory for server boards. Only some AMD board support ECC.
All i5 i7 memory controller known to man today does not support ECC memory.
These only support 8x1GB Dimms non-ecc that did not exist in consumer market.

Well, on the board I was thinking of there would still be two x16(x8) slots open for PCIe SSDs such as the OCZ P88 1TB after four video cards are installed. Two of them would yield read/write speeds over 2GB/s.



But if you can live with a pair of 590's or 6990's - that leaves open two x16(x16) slots for Fusion-IO Octals. Now we're talking read and write of 12GB/s and 9GB/s. A bit more respectable for a 1TB+ RAM drive... though we might be toeing the line in terms of overkill.

Maybe I was wrong about zomg's post.

I went to samsung's website to look at their DDR3 module line up.
http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/Greenmemory/Products/DDR3/DDR3_Lineup.html

There is actually an 8GB SODIMM module :pimp:
You can google part number: M471B1G73AH0
Right now I can find one for $412.68

All other 8GB DIMMs on the line up came up as ECC memory when I google the part numbers.
Well. Here is 8GB SODIMM ! :pimp:

@Jizzler
Fusion-IO Octals might have to break a bank to get one or two. Plus virtual memory on SSD reduce it's life time.
I'd favour Gigabyte I-Ram RAMDISK more (although its only Sata1)
