It appears to me this is how they (the memory suppliers) are going to stabilize memory prices perhaps even increase the price.


Now isn't it true that with a process shrink they can stuff more transisters into the same area that the larger process once filled and that being the case with more transistors acting like capacitors wouldn't that allow for more memory capacity on the same size chips as the previous process chips were?


So perhaps we can look forward to 3 or 4gig memory modules with systems running with 12gigs or more in trichannel? 



12 gigs of ram on tri channel is going to fking sweet. I hope this stuff is available in jan-feb some time when i do my i7 build.
