Your motherboard can’t handle Samsung’s chonky new 512GB RAM modules

Samsung is laying the groundwork for servers to pack in tens of terabytes of system memory with a world first: a 512GB PCIe 5.0 DRAM module. This is what the Compute Express Link (CXL) memory module was designed for, and allows for massive amounts of memory to be jammed into a system, operating over PCIe 5.0 rather than a standard memory slot. 

This is the first memory device that supports the PCIe 5.0 interface for data center and enterprise server usage. The South Korean hardware giant is certainly preparing us for the future of big data.
