This is a 4 GB RAM chip being currently developed. Ain't technology amazing? (But Win95, Win98 and WinME won't be able to use it since they all have a 512MB limit.)

Re: 3/4: 4 GB RAM chip

Whose 4 Gb is it? Who is currently leading in memory advancement?

Ah, I ain't impressed. Give MS enough time, and they'll produce an OS which will run on a PC which has a 100 GHz CPU and 4 of those 4 GB RAM chips like Win 3.1 did on a 386SX-25 with 4 MB.

You <b>know</b> it's true,

ram leak

you have to wonder, are we really just looking for a quicker, shinier way to screw up?

You <b>know</b> it's true,
MS, et al already had software that will bring new hardware to its knees. This was even true before Windows 3.1. MS had artifical intelligence for DOS that would place suggestions on the command line as you typed in C:\ prompt commands. It worked much like Netscape 4.x browser's URL entry. However PC hardware was not up to the task - so the artifical intelligence was never implemented in DOS.

The concept of Windoze was due to PC video hardware that was not up to the task of graphical interface demands made by Windows. It is also why Intel finally got pissted at the memory industry and promoted Rambus. It is also why Intel, Compaq, Cisco, and Microsoft all but sued the Telcos for impeding the installation of xDSL. It is why Microsoft sued US West for refusing to provide ISDN. Hardware is always behind what the current software demands are.

Which returns to the question of who is leading the charge in memory development these days.

That 4GB chip is Samsung. They are preparing for volume production of the 4GB chip in 2004.
