OK, it seems the E2X00 Xeons don't support any other ECC types: Is Registered ECC Memory Compatible with Intel® Xeon®...

```
Description Can I install the Intel® Xeon® E-2224 Processor and Registered ECC DIMM (RDIMM) memory on a server board?

Resolution Only Unregistered ECC DIMM (UDIMM) memory is supported with all Intel® Xeon® E-2100 Processors (formerly codenamed Coffee Lake) and Intel Xeon E-2200 Processors (formerly Coffee Lake Refresh).```

Your UDIMMs are x8 configuration, not 8 rank (likely single or dual rank). The single socket platforms that share CPU sockets with the consumer line cannot take RDIMMs or LRDIMMs, just UDIMMs.

My guess is you won't see any, with DDR5 arriving at the end of the year. The platform would also need to support the higher density should they come out in DDR4. Probably wouldn't be all that cost effective anyway, given that 32GB UDIMMs are double the price of RDIMMs. For $1k in RAM, you might as well go to the higher end platforms that support RDIMMs.
