    Single 4 GB modules ... where are they ?

    Most of us use arrangements of 1 or 2 GB modules, aren't we ?

    I really expect higher densities than that.

    What about the 4 GB ones ?

    I'm planing on building a system which has a motherboard with only 2 banks.
    For that I would need 2 x 4 GB, otherwise I'm trapped / screwed.

    I suspect they sell 2 GB modules until they got rid of the manufacturer's stock and then BOOM, 4 GB modules are going to be promoted like there's no tomorrow.
    Only downside to this, I'll have wasted my money for 2 GB modules by then.


    So, what's the current state in development of DDR2 RAMs ?




    4 GB modules
    Sorry, this product is no longer available.

    Have sent an email, asking about the supply of these modules.

    Re: Single 4 GB modules ... where are they ?

    Well now that AMD has DDR3 capable chips I can see there being little appetite to do higher densities of DDR2, since the system builders are probably going to want to shift to the shiny new higher number right about now, since both CPU makers support the standard. Same thing happened to DDR1 - 2Gb modules were about but were always rare.

    Re: Single 4 GB modules ... where are they ?

    Hmm, looks like my mATX can't cope with more than 8 GB.
    It will have to be this then.

    Most DDR2 motherboards can't do over 8gig

    Shame really.

    OMG, have just noticed the small print ...

    OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 / 800MHz / 4GB Modules / Vista Upgrade Edition
    * Currently only P45 and P43 chipsets support 8GB/16GB RAM densities.

    My dream has just collapsed.

    Bummer !

    Re: Single 4 GB modules ... where are they ?

    I have a G33 mATX Gigabyte board, which I think is equivlant to P35? Has 4 slots and will happily take 8GB (4x2GB) according to the manual. I would check your mobo manual before believing OCZ, allthough I wonder if its a limit on module size, rather than total capacity installed, i.e only P43/45 chipsets can handle single 4GB modules?

    Erm, where are the 6gig or 8 gig moduls? There are boards out there that can support 16 and 24 gigs.

    But to be honest whats it to be all used for?

    Depends what you're doing with your system.

    Yer, OK... I was kind of thinking that this being a small system was going to be a media pc, or second PC, with another big PC as well.
