SGI Altix Systems Make Giant Leap to 21 Terabytes of Globally Addressable
Memory at Customer Sites

,----[ Quote ]
| Silicon Graphics, Inc. (SGI) (Nasdaq:  SGIC) is in a category all by itself 
| when it comes to massive globally shared main memory and globally addressable 
| memory on SGI(R) Altix(R) 4700 systems. With numerous installations in the 4 
| TB range, and a number more in the 8 TB range, the groundbreaking scalability 
| of SGI systems extends to 21 TB of globally addressable main memory at 
| customer sites. This is over five times the size of memory that other vendors 
| can offer today. The system is designed to accommodate 128 terabytes of 
| globally shared memory under the control of a single instance of the Linux 
| operating system! The system may also be partitioned among multiple instances 
| of Linux and provide globally addressable shared memory among OS instances 
| via SGI's unique NUMAlink(R) interconnect technology.

Vista PCs: Suffering from Memory Loss?

| A reader wants to know why his new computer--which is supposed to have
| 4GB of memory--keeps telling him it really has only 3GB


Running Microsoft Windows Vista 64bit and 4GB Ram

| I then ordered 4GB (2 sticks of DDR667) of ram from Newegg.com. Everything 
| arrived fine, I installed the ram which is very simple. With a D630 it 
| involves talking off the keyboard to insert the first stick and then to 
| install the second stick you just have to remove the back panel. I stuck in a 
| Microsoft Windows Vista 64bit version and started the install. Everything 
| went fine, Vista installed rather fast so I was really happy at this point. 
| It rebooted after successful install, was loading into windows and then blue 
| screened. I was devastated lol.
