    Considering that a 128 GiB DDR4 LRDIMM seems to cost around 3500-5000 U$D, these should be at the very least 10K. Thus, 160K U$D to outfit 8 TiB to a single AMD Rome...

    Anyone wants to buy my kidney?

    I'm sure there is probably a metric that show these memory modules make sense for the price the charge.
    IE storage space/ server power / software costs due to extra CPU vs cost of memory

    Either way it's another dynamic to review when purchasing equipment for sure.

    For us home lab users, probably be 10 years before they make sense from a $ perspective.

    Maybe we'll get lucky and it will drive down prices for 8/16 GB modules... probably not, but it's still cool that they can cram that much onto a standard DIMM.

    SAP HANA and other in memory DB’s is the market for sure. Cost of dimms is almost irrelevant compared to other costs.

    Time for Intel (and AMD) to start supporting more memory per socket given the huge core counts these days.

    Quantity pricing at big customers was $2000 for 128GB LRDIMMs months ago but prices have been falling.

    Yeah DBs come to mind. A really performant all memory MySQL instance could be crafted and all of the tables could fit in memory with 4 to 8TB of ram — MySQL cuz that is one of the legacy systems we use at work.
