dual channel is fast right? is 32gb abit too much? lool
depends on your use. I purchased 2 of the above for a total of 32gb but might occasionally get put to the test in audio production software
i have 16gb atm, comp is constantly at 57% tons of chrome tabs, some programming, photoshop etc
32GB is perfect for me. I personally have gone over 32gb in my usage but my workload is different from most people. At idle with just browsing tabs open in background I sit around 14-16gb with other software is around 20-25.
I still recommended people to get 16GB at least. It allows multi user login without another user needing to log out.
Never had any issues with 16GB. Might become a problem in 2-3 years but right now 32GB seems overkill. No games use it and you'd have to have some specific tasks that require 32GB to take advantage of it.
What if I use chrome?
As a developer, I would definitely use 32GB. I've been thinking of building a new box, this might be time to start.
I have 24GB in my ~5 year old machine, found 16 actually wasn't enough (especially if I left Chrome open while going to play a game.
Started at 8, bought 16, found that wasn't enough so added the original 8 back in as well. Probably not great from a channel setup (it's 2x4gb and 2x8gb) but I don't run out of memory anymore.
Looking at building my replacement machine at the moment, might just grab this RAM because it's not going to get much cheaper over the next 6 months.
i have 8gb hyperx Predator,3200MHZ. will i able to add this to get 32 gb ? or its better to get anothyer hyperx predator ? Thanks.
Always better to match up memory, for stability.
Last time I checked 8+16 = 24?
a lot of ram deals the past 2 days… wait or buy??!?!
Don't need 32GB RAM but want dual channel…don't want to pay $30 more for 2x8…I don't see any solution here.
edit: almost out of stock. Universe once again solving my big dilemmas for me :p
If you've got ryzen then it's immediately about a 30% hit for single channel.
If you've got intel it's less, but still significant, ~15-20% IIRC.
Could you explain what you mean? If I'm using Ryzen, 2 x 16GB is 30% better than 1 x 32GB or am I misunderstanding?
Yeah, pretty much. Definitely depends on the scenario, but ryzen is very memory dependent, meaning you want to saturate all the possible channels and have it ideally at the fastest possible frequency.
This is probably a worst case scenario, but the difference is pretty substantial, tested with a 3900X:
@BenR31415: This is good to know, thanks!
lol that's me right now should I buy or not.. oh wait it's out of stock too bad
2x8GB version of this is available at Amazon (international but free with Prime) for $126.
$18 extra not too bad though.
I have g skill trident z that are 3200 16gb. Would these go together? Hard to find much info on the internet or I'm not searching the right things.
Mixing and matching memory is normally not recommended. It's not guaranteed to work, but I've never run into a situation where it doesn't.
Your bigger problem will be that the timings (eg CAS latency) will go to the slower of what the two sticks are capable of. Not a huge issue in the grand scheme of things.
2x8GB is better than 1x16GB if your motherboard supports it
Is out of stock already, always too late :'(
