To avoid recurring themes: never. So now you can stop asking (and everybody else, don't bother, thanks).

Sorry for my previous reply, but maybe you can imagine the number of times this question has been asked before and, often, answered. (And I really do not want to play the recurring "are they there yet?" game, even if it's only once a year. I work on the things that I choose to work on.)

How about this answer: When computers have 64 times as much ram, i.e. 64*16 GB = 1 TB of ram. So, perhaps in 12 years assuming doubling every 2 years?

If we have a doubling every 2 years, then 5 more years should suffice. I bought my current PC with 64 GB almost 3 years ago. But I don't expect to buy a PC with 1 TB of RAM in 2020.

If I am wrong, and by 2020 we also have somewhat affordable 10 TB SSDs, things could get interesting.
