SK Hynix Develops 128GB Stick of DDR4 RAM

SK Hynix, one of the leading producers of RAM modules, announced a single stick of DDR4 with 128GB capacity.

While this is intended for the server room, it makes me wonder how much ram our systems will have in the near future. At present is difficult to find a board that can support more than 64GB in total, let alone twice that, per stick!



Us us typical desktop user, or even the most hardened enthousiast, let's face it, this is super crazy overkill, eight times over, and that is only one stick!

With servers consuming more and more memory, it is clear why these exist. Lower power requirements of DDR4 and the sheer ammount of memory.

SK Hynix Senior Vice President Sung Joo Hong said this;
Quote:
“The development of the world’s first 128GB DDR4 module has its significance in opening ultrahigh density server market”

“The Company will further strengthen its competitiveness in premium DRAM sphere with the development of high density, ultrahigh speed and low power consuming products”
With it still unclear how much memory next generation Haswell-EX motherboard Intel X99 motherboards will support, we could be looking at the potential to have a very large bank of memory in our future systems.

While can can assume that this stick will not be compatible with a consumer Haswell-E system... but we can always dream, right?

RAM might become a viable storage method after all.

One of them is equivalent, if not more than my SSD. I could use one of those as my OS and steam drive.

Now i want them to create 128GB of GDDR5 vram. Then i'll be impressed.

Though in all seriousness this won't be cheap but will be far faster than any Sata 3 SSD in the world... Looks like onboard(literally) storage is the future!

Dude. That will probably be the next big thing for Laptops. You can have 128GB of RAM fitted, you split 8GB off for normal RAM use and use the rest for your primary partition. Add in a normal 1-2TB 2.5" HDD for storage and you pretty much have a desktop storage setup.

Now give it like 5 years before its actually implemented and cost much less. Though this makes me wonder what exactly this tech could do for mobile. Obviously on a much smaller scale but it could be the one thing that actually makes the top end phones different in speed, considering they all basically use the exact same specs..

The way things are going it wont be long before we start talking terabytes of ram instead of storage
