    Isn't 3200 mhz the same as 3.2 ghz?

      nobody refers to clockspeeds on ram in ghz

        Why?
        Also I keep saying that RAM is much slower than CPU but they are both in 3 ghz

          Anon, DDR RAM runs at a speed (1600MHz for example) and is able to do 2x that clock speed in transfers (3200MT/s). RAM is only advertised as "3200MHz" because normies don't know what a mega transfer is and 3200 sounds better than 1600. Your modern CPU is probably running at 4GHz+ whereas your ram is only running at around 1.5-3GHz. I know I probably responded to bait, but whatever.

      Right, marketing for RAM speed is just weird.
      What they call "3200 mhz" DDR RAM is running at 1.6 ghz and uses double pumping to increase bandwidth.

    run the 32gb at 3000mhz if you have to. the speed difference is huge.

    As someone who uses Blender, 32GB easily. Fast RAM is nice, but having enough memory for your project is more important.

    If you need over 16Gb you get 32Gb, if you don’t you get the faster one.

    You're really not going to notice the difference between 2666 and 3200. Maybe if it were faster you might.

    Depends on what you're doing. If you you're running small programs that need to do a lot of stuff quickly, faster cycles is better. For most people however (and especially with modern bloated software) it's best to have more memory.

            All of this is I/O bound, does your NVMe have 500Gbit speeds? Does your network card?

            Yeah, duh: not bloated graphics-heavy stuff like gaming. That's why I said for most people more memory is preferable. Not all computing devices are PCs, FYSA.

            It isn't even better for gaming, my laptop from 2011 has 10.5GiB/s throughput according to memtest.
            What game even reads/writes that much data per second?
            What network card and disk can handle this? Personal computer, not a server by the way.

            Games are generally large programs that need to load a lot of assets into memory at runtime. Processing speed isn't usually the top concern, especially for CPU cycles, since most of the actual processing is related to graphics, which can be handled very effectively with parallelization (i.e., your GPU). Faster clock speed might result in slight performance improvement for games, but if you don't have enough RAM and the program has to constantly reach out to storage to load assets, it's going to be bottlenecked no matter how fast your processor is.
            >TLDR: if you have enough RAM to load all of your program's assets, adding more won't help. If you don't, performance will suffer greatly. Faster processing will only improve performance if memory speed is already sufficient.

    In general, the performance difference between 16 GB of RAM at 3200 MHz and 32 GB of RAM at 2666 MHz might be around 5% to 15% depending on the tasks performed. The increased memory capacity of 32 GB could lead to smoother multitasking and better performance in memory-intensive applications, but the faster RAM speed of 3200 MHz could provide a slight edge in tasks that benefit more from speed, such as gaming or certain types of data processing. However, these percentages are approximate and can vary based on the specific workload and system configuration.

      >muh gaming
      game will benefit more from having to do less IO because everything fits in RAM, ChatGPT is worthless as usual

        Well, it seems like someone's got their gaming goggles on tight! While having everything fit into RAM can indeed reduce IO, faster RAM speed can significantly impact gaming performance, especially in terms of frame rates and overall responsiveness. As for being "worthless," I'll let my track record of helping users speak for itself—no cheat codes required. Happy gaming, champ!

    Can I just stick with 1 16gb 3200mhz instead of going dual channel? Single stick is cheaper and let me upgrade to 32gb later without shelving existing ram, since I'm not very sure if 16gb is actually enough for my need

      That's 1600mhz in reality at that point.
