Would have really liked to see dual channel 4GB 2x2GB to see if that still gets a measurable difference just for fun. (And yes, we still read those.)

I have 16 gigs 4 x 4gb 3200 mhz is that better or should i buy other ram?

Just saying, if you go 32Gb RAM its never a bad idea. 4x8Gb with fast RAM and you wont be unhappy.

Hi Jay. I am experiencing some bad stuttering playing Ark : Survival Evolved online. I have a 8th Gen I3 at 3.6ghz, with 4gb ram. And a Gtx 1650 4GB GPU. Will an additional 4gb ram in my 2nd dimm slot, help with that??

From my experience, i find that you can have expensive 8gb of ram overclocked as i did, and gtx 1080 8gig also overclocked, but the results are way more in favor to the amount of ram you have, Ghost Recon Breakpoint at 8gb of ram froze for few seconds during game-play, when i added another 8gb of ram pushing it to 16gb of ram, as a result the game opened faster, loaded faster and it did not freeze as to load components within the game its smooth, even navigating through windows apps was faster, and yes opening google chrome its a huge difference too!

Hey, my i5 7200U has a dedicated 2gb 920m with builtin 4gb RAM (nonremoveable). will I get more fps with a 4+4gb (dual channel) or with 4+8 or even 4+12 gb config (since these will be single channel) Basically, should I go for high memory or dual channel here? I've heard dGPU doesnt benefit much from dual channel ram since it has it's own vRam. So i should go for more memory? Only asking for gaming/fps.

I don't know if this has been tested, but have ya'll thought about utilizing smaller memory sticks across all four channels of a motherboard? AE: 4 sticks of 4GB would definitely open another variable yet a surprising outcome.....can i contemplate another video maybe?

So if I wanted 16gb of ram, would using 4, 4gb sticks make it a lot faster? Or does it not matter beyond dual channel

My games will run over 60 fps no problem ...gtx 1060 /i5-7400...but many games are starting to freeze up for a split second every now and then....but it will never go below 60 ....but me having 8gb ram doesnt help....apex is really the only demanding game that doesnt freeze consistently it might here and there but it so rare

So I wanna assume that this is also true for quad channel? 4 x 8 is better than 2 x 16?

I've been probably running the same budget Gaming PC since 2010. I5 650 dual core 3.2ghz Radeon HD 5770 ASUS P7P55D 2.0 PCIe slots. And only ran 4gb GSkill Ram in 2x2 config. FHD 500gb from WD. Cooler Master Power supply that's kinda loud but works in a cooler master case. It ran for years on all the games I wanted to play like EVE, Battlefield 2 and 3, TF2, War Thunder, HF2 etc. I only now updated it with a 2TB WD FHD, with win 10 plus a ZTC AC1900 Wireless card, and up to 16gb RAM of 1333mhz Ripjaws in 4x4 config. Wow, simple updates make all the difference. I'll save up and get a 2TB SSD. No reason to change the whole setup until my i5 dies. Very happy with my budget build.

8 gb is not enough in today's PC. IMO 16gb is the min and I actually just got an error that said 16gb wasn't enough and to lower my memory use for the first time ever while playing the new banner lords

Getting 8 GB today is a really bad idea in general, especially as in 2019 RAM prices were very low and still kinda are. Newer games, like Anno 1800 for example, have maxed out my previous 16 GB already after playing for a bit (I upgraded to 32 GB soon after - always dual channel of course, everything else would be stupid, as seen in this video). Also, avg fps don't tell the whole story, 99.x th percentile would be useful here.

It would be fun seeing if 4 sticks of 4Gb are better then 2 sticks of 8Gb. Theoretically, it should be according to the same logic explained in this video but by how much?

I definitely always run in dual-channel, but this test is horribly flawed. No one on EARTH is going to be running a 2080 TI with only 8 GB of RAM/one RAM stick. If they are, they should never be allowed to own a computer again. I get that it was to maximize bottleneck, but that's completely unrealistic and will NEVER match a real-world scenario. You should have done this test with a 570/580 or 1650 Super or something.
