LPDDR2 caps out at 533/1066. That crawls compared to DDR3. Then again, if you wanted to devote the die area and power to it, you could easily slap 4GB of 'slow' LPDDR2 at 2048b width under the lid of a Westmere/Haswell-EX. Would you give up 1MB of L3 for that (picking die tradeoffs out of thin air)? How about 2MB?

On a $5000 server chip, why the )#$(*# not?
