Default Samsung presents 32GB DDR3 memory module

Most DDR3 memory modules available today can handle 2GB while 4GB modules are hard to find in stock. If you are about to increase the memory capacity further you would have to get another 2GB module, which in the case of the Intel Core i7 platform would result in up to 12GB RAM. Memory manufacturer Samsung now offers three times the capacity with a single module. Samsung's new DDR3 memory targets Intel servers and can store up to 32GB data.

I assume only 64-bit OS can handle that...

You could have every single temp, cache folder in RAMdisk... (can you have the entire OS in RAMdisk?)

But apart from Photoshop and CAD, is there any application that would benefit from this much RAM?

Jep, 4Gb is the absolute maxium for 32-bit OS'es.
Having the complete OS in RAMdisk might be possible, but with every reboot you'll have to copy a complete OS from disk to memory and after each reboot you'll have to copy the content of the RAM back to the disk and you loose everything when power is lost or the system crashes, but other than that it'll be fast !

Professional sound and video editing software might benefit from the extra ram too ... if 64bit editions are available tough

save periodically to the harddrive or something, because everything is already in ram, you wouldnt be limited too much by disk speed, if at all

Well, My Documents always points to an HDD other than the OS one.

I'm just wondering how well the motherboards are going to handle this immense amount of memory. I don't think manufacuters test anything beyond 12Gb (6x2 or 3x4)...
Another interesting sentence is

, which probably only verifies that it won't work on your average motherboard.
