8GB RAM still the sweet spot for you, dear gamer.

You might not know the name SK Hynix. I didn’t at first, until I did a quick Google search and realised that it’s just the company that used to be Hyundai Electronics. That doesn’t mean bugger all, of course, I just thought I’d throw it in there.
Anyway, SK Hynix have taken to crowing in public a bit lately after revealing that it has developed the world’s first 128GB DDR4 RAM module. The news is supposed to excite the “ultra-high density server market” according to SK Hynix’s head of DRAM Development, Senior Vice President Sung Joo Hong. Mass production of the modules won’t start until the middle of next year.
Hopefully it all turns out to be a bit like Formula 1, where ABS brakes and KERS eventually find their way into the consumer market at an affordable price. 128GB sticks of RAM for $100? That’d be fun to run Photoshop on. God, now I’m fantasizing about scrubbing through footage in Premiere Pro without contracting a seizure.
