It looks like AMD have caused Intel to pull their finger out at last,

for set-top boxes, cash registers and so on.

8 gig RAM on older hardware

Who made 4 GiB DDR2 for laptops?
I have only seen 4 GiB sticks in servers. There were a few for desktops,
but I haven't seen any used. I think by the time it came out, people were
switching to DDR3.
