64-bit Query with 128GB RAM

There's this other forum I goto an although its main purpose is not computing one of the boards does reside to computing. There's been one little debate between 1 guy vs all others. Obviously I myself is in the "all others" category, though I just like getting more opinions on other people. Basically, like the title says.. Which relates to any Windows 64-Bit OS, can it work with 128GB RAM? I'm actually really curious what all you people think and then I could also forward this to which ever need be on my forum too. (Sorry if this is in the wrong area)

And thanks to any techies who reply =D

There's a significant difference in the Memory Manager between Windows Server OS's and Windows Client OS's (like XP, Vista, Win7) - so the question just isn't a simple yes or no answer.

Depending on the version (and the 64 bit requirement), the limits range from 8 gB (Vista Home Basic 64 bit) to 2 tB (some Windows Server versions)

This board will support 256GB of ram. There are plenty that support 128GB, 144GB and 192GB.

No, the image below is NOT Photoshop'd.

Wow.. Wouldn't the System be rather slow-ISH (Very much ISH), since data would get so scattered throughout the ram?

Nah, think about Solid State Drives.

Quote:
Relatively deterministic read performance:[25] unlike hard disk drives, performance of SSDs is almost constant and deterministic across the entire storage. This is because the seek time is almost constant and does not depend on the physical location of the data, and so, file fragmentation has almost no impact on read performance.
This would be the same with your ram, no real fragmentation issues amongst the ram due to the fact that you can hit anywhere in the memory with relatively the same speed.

Some servers make even the most powerful desktop PCs look like a TV remote.

Consider this beast, a BladeCenter QS22/LS21 Cluster, PowerXCell 8i 3.2 Ghz / Opteron DC 1.8 GHz , Voltaire Infiniband. Oh yes, it does silly things with numbers. The PowerXCell 8i 3200 MHz does 12.8 GFlops. lol.

Cores: 129600(!)
Rmax (GFLops): 1105000
Rpeak (GFlops): 1456704
NMax: 2329599
NHalf: 0

Those numbers boggle the mind. This system benched 1.059 petaflop/s (the first ever to break the petaflop barrier) in running the Linpack benchmark application. One petaflop/s represents one quadrillion floating point operations per second.

Oh, one day... My cell phone is going to be able to do petaflops... Until that day... I'll have to stick with the touch pro II.
