How much RAM (Memory) do you need for different workloads?

Updated: May 8

Holoware will go through some fundamental memory-buying suggestions for a few common workloads.

What is RAM?

RAM is a type of volatile memory that is extremely fast. It provides a way for your programs to retrieve and temporarily store data as needed.

Optimal Speeds:

The speed of RAM is determined by its frequency and timings. For tasks needing rapid data access, such as video editing or gaming, the lower the absolute latency, the better the performance. DDR4 RAM speed also depends on the processor you’re using. So, if you’re buying an AMD workstation, go with 3600 Mhz CL16 RAM.

Dual Channel vs. Single Channel:

Make sure to choose a RAM kit with two or four sticks of memory if your workloads involve 3D rendering, video editing, or CAD simulations. In comparison to a single-channel kit, dual-channel RAM delivers a performance gain of 3% to 17%, according to benchmarks.

You can select from a variety of RAM configurations based on the following factors:

• Speed • Latency • Capacity • Number of Modules

Reasons to update your RAM include the following:

• Reviving old computer • Ability to handle more complex projects • Boost your Performance

Using Different RAM Units:

Each kit is factory tested to ensure that all of the modules in that kit are compatible. If you buy individual RAM kits, you won’t get this warranty. This is why you should pick your RAM storage carefully, preferably, at the start of your purchase, which leads to the question:
