    I've been on 6GB for many years without issue. However, I've just checked the Battlefront 3 recommended specs and it asks for 16GB

    I always like to double what is seen as the "standard" at the time of building my PC, but this is purely to future-proof and I doubt I've ever really seen the benefit of doing so...

    Never mind...even if it does not help gameplay, 32gb will add a few inches to your manhood...

    Is that true? lol

    Its been over a year since this thread was started and apparently we still dont need 32gb. I'd be willing to be this still holds true this time next year.

    aaah good for you use AMD RAMDISK can use for temporaney data saved, can up hard speed to any game to have big maps or other game to use temporany dates

    According to a friend of mine, 64Gb is recommended for playing free cell.

    That is an interesting thought.

    If 8GB graphics cards become popular, well you probably want more main RAM than graphics ram so perhaps 16GB will become more common.

    Depends how heterogeneous it all gets I think. The DX<10 model of memory assets is still used, but doesn't need to be. Stick 16GB of vertical stacked ram on an interposer and have both CPU and GPU share it.

    I assume heterogeneous will still always be NUMA, so distinct memory regions would have a point?

    Always... would be a bold claim. How does it work on the PS4? I can see them sticking to virtual pools for ease of use for a while though.

    Slowly?

    Perhaps we will end up with big APUs with HBM and powerful graphics such that if you want faster graphics you plug in another APU. Multiple APUs still gets you back to having to be careful which APU you allocate your memory on to keep it local to where it is used.

    An alternative would be a PS4 APU style existence, what you bought is what you have unless you go out and buy an entire new system, and I don't see that ever being acceptable to many, so I think we are stuck with graphics cards for the foreseeable future.

    If we are stuck with external GPUs at a 7nm process, then given how silicon is going ATM that may well be the computing definition of "always"

    Re: (I know it's a repeated subject) A friend said they have 32GB for gaming *eyeroll

    Plug in Xeon Phi's for more int compute, GPUs for more vector compute, local mem acts as cache while move engines/NVLink etc. works to give access to the main block memory on the central APU module(s)

    OK, so that's back to NUMA again for the add-ins at least, so probably not a server architecture that'd work, but given the reduction in costs and increase in bandwidth for vertically stacked mem I wouldn't be surprised if APU+solder RAM becomes more common place - and performant enough - for most uses. It's only GPU vendor competition that's really stopping it being my choice too. CPU/Motherboard/RAM I'm almost upgrading in sync these days.

    I still have 8GB. I've never thought "damn, I need a extra 8 or 24 GB of RAM"

    I do gaming, video editing (although annoyingly my video camera is broken right now ) and I also edit my photos. Amongst other more "normal" day to day use of my computer, web browsing, office, etc.

    I've always followed the school-of-thought that you should try and get double whatever the present-time optimum is for future proofing but to be honest, 32gb is an incredible amount of silicon that wont get used

    I've had 16gb DDR3 for years (I bought Aria value RAM basically to see what it would be like and it's been rock solid) and I hardly ever use any of it

    I'm thinking about 32gb DDR4 for my next build but then again I'm also thinking about buying a Subaru Impreza and stuffing some tissues down my jeans.
