I recently purchased a Dell N5110. It's described as having a maximum memory of 2x4Gb. What is the reason for the maximum module size of 4Gb?
Is it impossible to manufacture DDR PC3-10600 with more than 4Gb addressable (i.e. the standard limits it)? Is it that they just haven't started making them, yet, so manufacturers only offer what's available? Is it limited by its addressing lines to only 32bit. Something else?
It would be nice to think there's a way to increase memory beyond 8Gb in the future, and I can't see why this wouldn't be possible from a hardware point of view.
