In how many years will 32 GB of RAM be standard?

>> No.66220364

4GB is the minimum for an office PC.
8GB for power users
16GB for gamers and small content creators.

By 2022 I expect this to double.
So maybe 2026?

32GB is reasonable if you do any sort of virtualisation on your desktop, I hit 16GB with 2 vm's open along with other normal applications running.

>> No.66220643

When Intel or AMD support LPDDR4 for laptops 32GB will be the bar for "this is a good amount". So probably 2023 for it to be standard.

>> No.66220817

Acutally you can. It's called Ramdisk.

you may not like it but this is how future will look like

>> No.66221187

you need to look at laptops.

The average laptop today sells with 4GB soldered period. SOMETIMES you get lucky and it comes with those 4GB + a socket with/without another module (usually another 4GB). 8GB laptops start to show up in the "relatively expensive" range.

6 years ago it was a similar situation but with 2/4 GB. By this logic, in about 6 years 8GB will be the min specs in the average lappie and 16 will be the "relatively expensive" range, with 32 biut being top tier.

My bet is 10 to 12 years before 32GB becomes the standard.

I'd say 32GB is pretty low if you're doing much of anything in VMs. At work, I typically have 2-3 VMs open, each of which is hogging 8-16 GB. The stuff I have open in my host OS usually consumes another 16. I'd be fucked with only 32 GB.

Theoretically it actually is possible to quadruple your DRAM with software, though. Just write a program that compresses all the data going in and out of /tmp/ (or a symlink to it) by a factor of 4.

You get more when ram is cheap, but these days no point spending too much on ram when you don't need it. The cheapest ram per stick was during DDR2, DDR1 was a shitstorm with one of the largest fab shuts down or something.

Fucking this. If only offshore pajeets didn't keep writing shitty code and making bloated software 2x2gb RAM would be the standard to which all software would be designed for.

Fuck chrome, fuck windows, fuck android, fuck M$FT office, fuck all this botnet bloated proprietary shit that runs like dog turd. W10 regularly hits the 3.5gb RAM mark for me and that's when I'm just using my PC regularly. On the other hand Arch Linux usually hits around 1gb, 1.5gb at most for me.

My mum has 4GB for he office PC.
It's enough for W10 + Firefox/Chrome with 5 tabs and MS Word.

My sister has 8GB for her games.

I have 16GB because I use Photoshop/Lightroom/Premier and have 20 tabs open. However I find myself running out of memory more and more. I'll probably upgrade to 24GB by the end of the year.

I remember when 2GB was enough and you could run Crysis on it, which still looks better than most games, 10 years later.

Can someone explain to a non /g/ why ram usage is considered bad. Shouldn't I want as much shit that I'm likely to use stored in the ram as possible and just have it dumped when the extra space is needed? I understand that you don't want chrome relying requiring 4gig to function properly at any one time, but why would you want it to dump infomation for any other reason than showing off small ram usaging in performance monitor?

Notice how I never mentioned increasing features or capabilities. So the "march of technology" is a higher resource requirement for the same tasks? If that is true why are cars and home appliances becoming more efficient?

>> No.66227079

6GB is a "recommended" amount now for the majority, 4GB being minimum. For normal PC use (no development, no heavy gaming) 8GB will be fine for decades.
Although technically the minimum amount doubled every 5/6 years the PC market in it's current form won't evolve as fast anymore.

it's depend what you do inside the VM, if you're running a bunch of services and generate a lot traffing, of course 16GB isn't enough.
