THE HAPPENING WORLD: Samsung 512 Gigabyte DDR5-7200 Memory Modules

A server fully populated with these forthcoming modules will have 8 terabytes of RAM per socket. We may be back in strange situation of the original IBM PC, which could have up to 640 kB RAM, which was larger than the capacity of its 160/320 kB floppy disc drives. Microsoft Windows, of course, cannot handle this situation: it craps out with “insufficient swap space for memory capacity”. Competently designed operating systems should have no such problems.
