Uh, you might be up to something here.
The new memory system "can" address memory beyond the 2 GB range, yet all programs that want to access it, needs to be recompiled (wonder if that will be a big change in the source?)
I don't know if the whole range of another 2 GB could be used with this method or only lets say 512 MB, would be nice to hear a statement
If enough memory could be addressed beyond the barrier than we would have some kind of memory protection, wouldn't we?
Given the fact that only system programs (the ones you posted) and specifically written programs (which in turn would have to follow strict rules) could adress them..
To the best of my knowledge, only 256K is allocated out of Graphic ram as accessible in the current OS. I could be wrong now....
Yes, it still is, but maybe that will change too (not with the new memory management) but maybe with an updated gfx driver?
People are dying.
Entire ecosystems are collapsing.
We are in the beginning of a mass extinction.
And all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth.
