Assuming you can get a board and a CPU to run that fast does it add much to the performance?

AMD talks about the AM5 socket lasting but will the first generation of boards hold back faster memory?

What would be the reasoning behind 48Gb dimms instead of 64Gb?
They're SK Hynix chips afaik. It's multiples of 24GB because that's the best SK Hynix could make with EUV at this point. It's just a temporary solution until manufacturers make denser chips.

I don't really like the idea of memory sizes that aren't a power of 2. I know we always test software on systems that have a power of 2 in memory size.
