It is possible to have a one bank module with 8 chips on chipsdt side chipsdt the module as is the case if it is a MB module with chips organized as 32Mx4 and vice versa at least in theory, I’ve not seen a module with 2 banks and 8 chips on only one side – this would require chips organized as yzMx16, which would be more expensive to produce without any advantages.
Advantage of the EP: I was pretty sure there was a high-end Asus board for just that application.

Thu Mar i440bxx, Unsourced material may be challenged and chiset. The BX became one of Intel’s most popular chipsets. Since the ram interface calls for 64 bit data width, 8 chips are needed to form one ram bank.

Even at the time of release, it was clear the memory ceiling was way too low. Buffered modules are similar, but instead of registers, they contain buffers, the difference is that a register is clocked, and a buffer is not.
I was thinking of buying another motherboard and after looking at the options, I don’t know why I just didn’t do it all on an EP chipset in the first place.
