    "64GB active mode standard"? Are they comparing 4 16GB sticks to 8 8GB sticks?

    All this talk about higher speed and more efficient RAM is fine,but means diddly squat for most people in the realworld if it isn't affordable,as people are more constrained by costs(as are OEMs) and the Samsung PR bumpf seems to ignore costs. If this ends up costing more than similar speed RAM on an older node,it will only see relatively niche applications. Most OEMs will stick to cheaper RAM based on older technology.

    Like Apple, still using DDR3........

    Isn't that because of Intel and CPU support?

    Two 32GB sticks vs four 16GB, active mode is basically not idle.

    Something not mentioned in the article (unless i missed it skimming through) is that this isn't 10nm, it's 10nm "class", something that Samsung defines as a process node between 10 and 19 nanometers.

    Partly because of cpu choice yes. It's also probably because they get a great deal on the ram as well though

    Yep, I got confused by Gb chips Vs GB sticks

    The 2nd slide is so great it needs to be used twice?

    Actually all this talk about "higher speed" means diddly squat whilst random access latencies stubbornly remain around the 40-50ns mark that it's been sitting at for the last 15-20 years.

    Whoever can get _THAT_ down will rule the silicon world.

    All the Rube-Goldberg/Heath-Robinson workarounds for that latency (massive local caches, pipelining, etc) have come with significant downsides - and as we've seen more recently some of those include major security vulnerabilities.
