Because it is a solution looking for problem.
And the BOM is pretty low. May be, not exactly 1.3x as in eBAy price case, but probably way less than 2x.

Those are things that customers want and know why they want them. Quite different from NVDIMM-N.

Now, if a year or two from now there will be customers that bought 3DXP DIMMs and found out that they are very useful in principle, but too slow, then. may be, these customers will start to look for NVDIMM-N and will be willing to pay the premium. Of course, they probably would want something bigger than 16 GB.
