Everyone knows you need 128 GB of RAM to replicate a human... Duh! What IS the "RAM cap" of 64-bit, anywayz??

Beyond the limits of the operating system, 64 bit is whatever 32 bit was (3GB), to the 32nd power (i.e. (2^32)^32).

I respond with link. It's a quick read.

And thus we are capable of hitting the ram cap of the 64-bit era.

The RAM cap of the 64bit era is 16 Exabytes, that is the equivalent of 16.8 Million Terabytes.

RAM is cheap; however, 128 gigs of it is not. That's what, 8x 16 gig sticks? Who sells 16 gig sticks?

I can't think of anything a general consumer would need that much RAM for other than a RAM drive. A developer could probably make use of it, but I wouldn't be using that platform if it were me.

And I just upgraded to 8GB on my DDR2 system, pfff.
