8x512GB RAM in a 64 core Threadripper system...

Split that into 16 virtualized systems for 1-4 core CPU, configure 220-240GB RAM as a RAM Drive leaving 16-36GB RAM...Half all that for 32-2 core systems...

Sounds like the perfect way to cut the operating overhead and footprint of places like libraries, cyber cafes, schools...

Typo in the article:
Samsung expects mass production for its DDR4-7200 512GB memory module
Should be DDR5

7.2Gb/s, 512GB
since when is RAM slower than an NVMe SSD? Or is it 0.9GB/s per module (I see 20 modules in the graphic)? Or is it 0.9GB/s per stack (8 stacks/module * 20 modules leads to 160 stacks*0.9GB/s/stack = 144GB/s)?

It's 7.2Gb/s per IO pin. Each DIMM is 64-bit (maybe extra for ECC), so it's for 57.6 GB/s for 1 DIMM. For a system with 8 channel memory, it's upward of 400GB/s.
