Kingston demonstrate 24GB DDR3 running on X58 mobo

Six 4GB modules and lots of virtualization

We were sent a video produced by Kingston which demonstrates a massive 24GB of DDR3 ValueRAM running on a GIGABYTE EX58 UD5 motherboard.

 

The technology demo produced by the biggest memory company in the world shows the type of power 24GB of memory on a single system is able to produce. Kingston demonstrated VMware workstation and 9 VM's to almost fully use all system memory (only 3GB to spare), proving that it works, it's stable and just what the system is capable of.

 

The memory intensive Crysis game was also loaded briefly, which basically emulated the equivalent of 10 computers running on one desktop computer.

 


The GIGABYTE mobo had its DDR3 DIMM slots completely maxed out with a total of six 4GB ValueRAM memory modules that will set you back over $2000 USD once they are released later this year.

 

Will you be saving up for this extreme memory upgrade?
