Is 4GB of ram still normal in present day? I switched from 2GB and everything works perfectly. For me personally, it is enough.

12GB is the patrician choice.

It's actually not. 16GB is standard nowadays.

This! Unless you're working on a side project or using a lower-end rig for other various reasons. But for your main rig 16GB is the standard.

I have 16 Gigs in my main machine, but I also use that one for photoshop/premiere and music production. I use my laptop for pretty much only browsing the web and reading and I never reach past 4 Gig doing that. So I'd say, you do you, there's no point in upgrading if you don't need it.

i mean, main rig has 8gb, t510 has 4gb and im working in setting up a minecraft server with 2gb and a ib with 1gb, 16gb seems too much of a meme, yet again i didnt upgrade my pc until its intel 2 quad and 2gb of ram shit the bed

When will 32GB be the standard?

The cheap second-hand laptop I got last year has 8GB and that's been a pretty big change for me, I was used to 4GB up to that point. I'm still shocked to hear of people using 16. Though I suppose using a bunch of ever-expanding spyware (read: Windows) can be pretty intensive. Unless I suddenly have a change of heart and start getting heavily into gaming, I don't think I'll ever need more than this.

Standard for what? for hardcore gaming maybe, also for Pixar level modeling or Hollywood level video edition, for other tasks no, I run a lot VM and I don't need more than 8GB, of course when I do that work I only can do that work, same with video edition and other similar tasks. Of course if you use a super bloated system even 16GB eventually become not enough.

Agree, its a meme, and a very bad one.

I hope never ever.

I got 32 gb.

At work we have build machines with 64 GB memory and it is filled up within seconds if you try doing link-time-optimization on anything big.

 No.413

4GB is the budget choice as 2GB once was, I don't imagine doing anything on the latter smoothly except bloatless web browsing or really old PC games.

 No.414

Depends on the OS. Windows 10? No.
Linux, bsd or otherwise (excluding solaris or anythhing using zfs)?
Sure, it's fine.

As long as you avoid like KDE or gnome or whatever. I am at 193mb idle with windowmaker and like 12 dockapps

I have 16GB in my laptop from 2011. Works pretty well.

>When will 32GB be the standard?
Hopefully never. That would mean programs become so infested that you _need_ 32GB of RAM for everything to be working properly.
Stop making programs more bloated than they already are please, thank you.

yeah, a big part of the issue is consumer grade computers and professional computers are kind of blurring together; you have spotty 13 year old boys in their bedrooms using rigs that would be powerful enough to be a professional workstation. if consumer computers get capped at a certain level, then hopefully consumer software stays less resource heavy. plus it'd encourage pro software (daws, 3d modelling software, etc) to optimize better to get to da consoomers

I hope never, I use a t400 with 6GB of ram, and I don't know why i bothered on plugging the 4 GB stick because i never use more than 2 gbs

 No.468

Unused RAM is wasted RAM.

 No.470

>>468
How can i use it?

 No.471

Compile something of reasonable size with LTO, it will make your computer swap like crazy.
