Is there a large difference between 8G and 16G in computer RAM?

This is determined by the situation:

1. For ordinary home users, 4GB of RAM is basically ok, 8G is enough, and when it is added to 16G, there are almost no change. Because most applications are written in a 32-bit environment, the use of RAM will not exceed 4G.

2. For game enthusiasts, the current maximum RAM demand for the game is 6GB, therefore, 8GB is sufficient for game lovers. At present, there is no difference between 8G and 16G, but there might be differences when higher demanding games occur in the future.

3. For video and animation producers, 8G is too low, 16GB is only barely ok, it is recommended to use 32G or more. In addition, be sure to set up dual channels.

It is recommended to use 16G if the CPU is above i5, when internal RAM gets larger, it can preload with more things, the speed is faster, and the multitask switching is smoother. For example, I am very lazy and often leaves 20 to 30 pages open, so the RAM usage is very high. If the internal RAM is small, switching will be very clutch, if you have larger RAM, you only need to minimize the webpage before play a game. It will not make the game clutch, so it is very convenient.

As follow is an easy way to view your computer configuration:

CPU: mainly look at the number of cores and the main frequency. The higher the above two parameters, the better the performance;

RAM: Look at the RAM size, the larger the RAM, the better the performance; the motherboard: no need to look at the parameters, mainly look at the interface, choose the interface that can meet your own needs;

Hard disk: Whether it is a mechanical hard disk or a solid-state hard disk. If it is a mechanical hard disk, look at the number of rotation speed, the larger the number of retation, the better the performance. Then, look at the capacity, the larger the capacity, the more things can be stored;

Power: Meet the needs of your computer.

RAM is one of the most important parts of a computer, it is the bridge to communicate with the CPU. All programs in the computer run in RAM, so the performance of the RAM has a huge impact on the computer.

RAM is also called internal RAM, it is used to temporarily store arithmetic data in the CPU and exchange data with an external RAM such as a hard disk.

As long as the computer is running, the CPU will transfer the data that needs to be calculated to the RAM for calculation, and the CPU will transmit the result back when the operation is completed. The operation of the RAM also determines the stable operation of the computer.

The size of the RAM will mainly affect the capacity of the computer data processing space. In general, the larger the RAM, the more applications you can open.

Two 2G dual-channels will operate much faster than a single 4G, and two 4G dual-channels are naturally much faster than 16G single RAM (there is no 16G single RAM for civilian use).

In addition, if you don't have a lot of tasks to run at the same time, 8G is just a waste. To check about RAM occupation, just click task manager - performance - RAM usage! If you run more than 8G of multitasking, you can choose a 16G RAM. If your tasks are far less than 8G, you don't have to consider 16G, you don't even have to consider about 8G.
