16GB DDR2 memory modules to show up soon

16GB DDR2 memory modules to show up soon news post from TweakTown's online news computing and technology content pages

It's been reported over at TGDaily that Micron plan to release the world's first *16GB* DDR2 module by the end of the year, these of course focused on the server market however. These modules will use a twin-die 36x2x2Gb stack arrangement and are expected to carry a humongous price tag of somewhere between $14,400 and $21,600 PER module :O

 


Servers memory capacity will get a boost later this year with availability of 16 GB modules. Micron is currently sampling the devices, which are built in a 36x2x2Gb "twin-die" stack configuration. Commercial availability is planned for late 2006.

 

Ultra-dense DDR and DDR2 memory modules ar etypically used in high-end server environments when a memory upgrade makes more economical sense than replacing a complete server. However, high-end memory is not quite mainstream in terms of pricing and typically out of reach for the average customer.
