    i remember I paid for x1 256mb ECC RAM for £280 pounds then finding out you needed another one for it to work. Working for a biscuit factory at £3.75 many many years ago. It doesn't mention how much this 128GB cost. But Well done Samsung. I'm sure Intel Optane should better this.

    Re: Samsung begins mass production of 128GB DDR4 modules

    That's nowt. I remember paying a shiny farthing and a threpn'y bit for 48k upgrade for a spectrum 16k...

    Sorry, I was channeling my inner Yorkshireman

    I do recall my father upgrading as specified above, but cannot recall the price. I do however remember parting for £39.99 for an Atari ST (520) 1MB upgrade from a shop I made a special trip to in North London! I recall seeing pot bellied pigs walking in the road on the way there!

    Re: Samsung begins mass production of 128GB DDR4 modules

    So this may sound dumb but something is confusing me, in their press release they mention bringing TSV to HBM but i thought HBM already used TSV, is Samsung's implementation different somehow?

    I regularly run games out of Ramdrive Images with my paltry 24gb - well worth the money as you get better than SSD performance without having to swap what game you have installed in the SSD.Leave the SSD for (OS of choice) and have ramdrive images stored on a high capacity HDD - a 16gb game loads into memory in just over a min at 200MB/s which most 1TB HDD's should have no issues achieving and you'll regain the min in reduced load-times over about 30 mins usually, leastways that's how it works for me with Skyrim, now I've gotta get more ram to do it with FO4, maybe a couple Samsung sticks? ^^;

    I just bought a 1TB SSD instead to solve that problem

    I solved the problem with a 4TB (2x2) raid 0 array with SSD caching, a bit out there but works great.

    Anyway this can only be good news as capacity goes up prices come down.

    Bearing in mind Zen can support upto 256GB of RAM per channel, this breakthrough by Samsung will support their partner (AMD's) vision for Zen.

    Pah. I can remember paying that much for 1MB of ram and then watching the price double++ after a fire in the Sumitomo factory in Japan. (HDDs aren't the first IT commodity to fall prey to pork belly futures traders)

    You actually have to swap the game in every time you boot up or switch game....you also are potentially causing ram bottlenecks......and your paying extra for that and dealing with pre-load times.
