Cool idea memory modules with external 4pin power connectors on the top edge. Talk about memory over clocks. Or each memory module could have a connector on the top edge for a size D Energizer battery for battery back up purposes. I guess a smaller battery would work but why not go for the gusto and put a damn semi truck battery on there for backup purposes.

Interesting idea, i like to see creativity like that, gets me thinking. If you could somehow embed/integrate the os into ram, it would make allocation of some system files faster, and therein make booting an os faster. If that idea took off, ram would be "WIndows only" or "Mac Only" hence making Linux obsolete unless it can be rewritten like a flash drive, as opposed to unwritable like a BIOS (and i'm saying that in the sense that a BIOS is not meant to be rewritten however it CAN sometimes)

I realize that you would always have to power the RAM (cause it looses its data once there is no electricity), but 16+ gigs of RAM would be enough for a Windows installation (Maybe not Vista, but XP is only like 3-4 gigs) or a distro of linux to create an instant-on machine??

BTW Windows in Ram has been a dream of mine since Windows 3

16Gb of ddr3? Yes Please. Can I run that in dual or even in tri channel?

The problem is not "finding mainstream applications capable of feasting on hordes of memory", it's time for 64 bit to happen, time for the OEMs to stop being cheap and put 64 bit OSes on all their machines, time for all applications to finally have 64 bit binaries.

And isn't it 16Gb (as in gigabit) rather than 16GB (gigabyte)?

This is great news since DDR3 RAM of lesser density will drop in price & allow DDR3 in general to go mainstream with such a technology release. When that happens, I'll probably switch over to the Core i7 after everything has panned out for the best (if it does...).
