Corsair has just released the three largest unbuffered DDR4 kits available for enthusiasts who can afford the asking price.  Two 128GB Dominator Platinum kits, one clocked at 2400MHz and one at 2666MHz along with a 2400MHz Vengeance LPX have just gone on sale.  All three kits consist of eight 16GB modules which means that the number of motherboards that support these kits is extremely limited, the EVGA X99 Classified, ASRock's X99 Extreme4 and the Asus X99-E WS are among the few.   As you can see below the investment is rather high but if you want bragging rights, or an amazingly large RAM drive then Corsair has a solution for you.

So, ddr4 ram disk vs intel 750?

With games like GTA5 taking up 70GB and graphics cards pushing 4+GB (Windows likes 2x that for its page file), I've given up on the dream of using a RAM disk.

SSDs and now PCIe/M.2 are good enough imo, I have a 4 disk RAID0 array and drive utilization never even breaks 20% of synthetic 1.5GB/s throughput.

Not really sure who this is for. If you need that much memory for your work, you need ECC, and ECC DDR4 memory is actually cheaper than this. (Quick price check found 8 x 16GB modules for $1672, 4 x 32GB modules for $1904.)

On the other hand, this means that next-gen E3 Xeons will be able to support 64GB of RAM, which is good news, and regular mini-ITX boards will support 32GB.

Oh god, Jeremy...this is too lame even for you.
"For the rich and famous"? Dominator Platinum is one of the WORST memory brands out there. It's LITERALLY overpriced garbage for stupid kids who don't know jack about hardware.
No truly sophisticated and highly experienced PC enthusiast out there would ever buy any of this Dominator crap, you have to be an absolutely uneducated lamer to do so. Such memory brands like KLEVV (which are waaay cheaper while performing pretty much the same and looking better) own Dominator's sorry ass, any given day and minute. All aspects-wise.

For god's sakes, Jeremy...I cannot believe how actually unprofessional you are when it comes to this...it makes me cringe...

"Neither the fastest nor the quickest, Klevv Cras buyers pay a hefty price for those fancy, lighted heat spreaders."

You are having a complete psychotic break about a computer component. You do realize that, right? You're going to have a stroke if you don't relax lol.

Trolling or for real? LOL yeah those Klevv modules that came out a few months ago have been a enthusiast mainstay for years!!

Seriously, Dominator Platinum are the only DDR4 you can get with C10 stock and the higher clocked modules use the same SK Hynix chips as Klevv.

I often wish I could read what it is that some seem to read when they look at one of my posts. It must be a totally different way of interpreting life.

Instead of a post that simply informs people these DIMMs are for sale and listing the motherboards that are compatible, apparently this is a post praising the glory that is Corsair and how the Platinum series is the best available RAM in the galaxy and that you should DROP EVARYTHING AND GO OUT AND BUY THEM!!!!

I am tempted to write a post only containing lorem ipsum and see what I am accused of.

Dude, you're grade 7 math teacher was right, YOU ARE THE DEVIL!

Don't fret, Jeremy. Some people on this planet are stupid and you can't fix that. Great article!

Yes I'm mad.
I'm mad that people still fall for this Dominator Crapinum trash PR bullshit even these days, even thought they should have known better by now.

And I am mad about having to listen to your psychotic rants every time you don't agree with this site.

Crapinum. Wow. You Zinged Corsair pretty harsh there, dude.

Seriously though, it's memory. If people want it, now then can buy it. The Miracle of Capitalism.

Or should I say, Miraclism.

My Mac at work as 24GB of RAM, so i have a script that sets up a 4GB RAMdisc on boot. All my downloads and little working files go there during the day. It's helpful for keeping everything tidy (because it all disappears on shutdown) but I don't notice dramatically faster performance between that and the Mac's built-in SSD. Adobe software won't be hurried :) Likewise, Word for Mac 2016 will open little documents at around 1 per second from either medium.

That said, would it be possible to have programs installed on a 128GB RAMdisk, and have it 'mirrored' to slower, non-volatile backup storage? The RAM disk could rebuild on boot, and then offer spiffy performance, provided it's not hampered by the mirror drive.
