    My PC is from year 2011 and it has 6gb of RAM. I think why should I buy a PC for the next 8-10years with only 8 or 16 GB. A PC will get old and you can't buy every 2 years a new PC. So why not 32GB? And not every Mainboard has more than 2 slots. Your Mainboard has to be compatible with a higher Ram-memory otherwise you can destroy your mainbord plus your power adapter supply because it has to deliever enough electricity if not you can throw your pc away.

    2:02 They obviously didn't take modded minecraft into account

    Red Dead redamption 2 for pc requirements 16 gb ram+ , so much 16gb will be enough for the Future ….

    Is 64gb enough for gaming and music rendering/composing?

    If you are doing Ray tracing you will need more RAM than 16GB an example is Battlefield 5 if I have Ray tracing on low with high graphical settings I use almost my entire 16GB of RAM and I have to close a few programs so I can have enough overhead but I don't get stuttering

  7. 2:50 for example its 2019 and you like to play your fps game with 200fps the game runs much smoother with 32gb because there are less 0.1% and 1% drops and it feels more stable

    normal games 8gb
    multitasking, modded games, 16gb
    modded cities: skylines, 64gb

    if you like heavy-modding games such as Skyrim and Minecraft, you'll need more than 16gb ram..

    32GB helps with 0.1% lows in framerate. The only pro right now is to reduce stutter.

    I have 237 GB but only 20 GB left on my new pc. My old PC had 2 terabytes….

    Wow! this is old video! We need 32GB RAM or higher to play modern games since 2019.

  13. SoperX2

    Google Chrome needs all that GB ram space

  14. I use 32GB of RAM and nearly filled it (I played Minecraft and used 83% of my RAM with it and my Server running) so I don’t think that 32GB is too much

    You claim 16gb is all that is needed and 32gb is a waste and overkill. U also claim dual channel memory u won't notice any difference. I have an acer nitro 5 laptop and just added a 2nd 16gb ram stick so I went from 16gb single channel to 32gb dual channel. With settings maxed out in shadow of the tomb raider I just went from a average fps of 59 all the way up to 76fps. That's a 30% increase in frame rates. I think you need to redo your video. I also tested planet coaster. On a large park I have a 50% increase on frame rates but the game is super ram intensive

    I just got a new Alienware Laptop with 64GB Dual Channel DDR4 at 2933MHz so that I can play Minecraft with Ray Tracing at 4K.
