Cool Hynix Introduces 2-Rank 8GB DDR2 RDIMM

MetaRAM aims to bump RAM capacity by 4x overnight - Engadget

We're not sure what whacky voodoo snakeoil these MetaRAM people are peddling, but the company's got some high profile behind it (like Intel, for one), is being led by former AMD CTO Fred Weber, has appears to have some potentially revolutionary RAM quadrupling technology. Claiming to have leapfrogged current RAM technology by 2-4 years, MetaRAM uses a specialized "MetaSDRAM" chipset that effectively bonds and addresses four cheap 1Gb DRAM chips as one, tricking any machine's memory controller into using it as a 4x capacity DIMM. Since a 1Gb chip is apparently far less expensive than a 2Gb chip, MetaRAM devices can multiply capacity at prices far lower than their competition; the company claims it'll be shipping in machines in the first quarter of this year, and Hynix has already announced their own 2-rank 8GB DDR2 RDIMMs for the second half.
it will cost u limb for each stick n a discount if u use both legs n get a Nehalem from Intel lol.
