There will also definitely be a supply chain problem.

There will be a price war on DDR5 this fall, it is limited to specific chip sizes and more expensive. There will have to be 16 chips of ram on the motherboard for all that.

Now I'm not saying its not going to happen but there is a possibility. It also gives Microsoft a lot of price flexibility if they stick with this plan.
