It's buffered RAM and fast too, but it's generally used in servers because of that. It's very expensive, but good technology. Here's an article that explains how it works:

I'm thinking it will with minor changes in the technology. Right now, we're looking at DDR3 in the immediate future. I hope they do make a version of FB-DIMM for regular desktop PCs.

Maybe AMD will skip DDR2? That would be cool
