    Um, yeah you did read that right, 128 GB ! SK Hynix Inc. announced that it has developed the world's first highest density of 128 GB (Gigabytes) module based on 8 Gb(Gigabit) DDR4 using its advanced...

    These chips are packed so tight it looks like a photoshopped joke.

    Reminds me of high density SDRAM when they looked like that for 256MB->512MB->1GB

    Like so.

    Except for one problem - ram needs to be refreshed often to keep memory =]

    I'm guessing $1000 per stick and no motherboards will support it except servers

    edit: dur it even says high density server market.

    I think a better option would be to run a really stripped down version of linux with zen and run a VM with GPU passthrough. You could set it so when you boot up the computer, it loads a disk image from a HDD/SDD to RAM, then automatically runs the VM. Then when the VM is shut down, the host automatically backs up the VM to the HDD and continues to shut down the PC.

    Great news ! Should also be a indication of future ssd drives capacity.

    I'm not too sure about that. That's comparing apples to oranges. What it will do is immensely improve large-scale data analysis and scientific research.

    I think he must have been talking about those DDR-based dedicated RAM Drive external boxes that have the audacity to call themselves SSDs. Those things rely on a UPS, dedicated on-board battery, or a dedicated SSD cache to maintain data in case of power loss. They connect to the PC motherboard via eSATA or a proprietary PCIe card. Accelerated Logic Systems calls their the "Hyperdrive", OCZ calls their the "Aeon Drive" and there's a bunch of others that follow the same basic principle.

    No I know, but those drives tend to perform abysmally and are very expensive. I think those drives would be a lot more appealing if they acted like fake RAID 0 controllers. Most desktop PCs have way more SATA ports than anyone has a use for. If a single RAM drive could operate in 4x RAID 0, you'd get some amazing performance out of that without the need for the painful process of setting up a "low-level" VM.
