today we’re going to be taking a look at
Bram and the differences between single
channel and dual channel and how 8 gig
16 gigs and 32 gigs will affect your
gaming experience on the horizon
platform at 1080p we’ll be taking a look
at 5 different titles at two different
graphical presets first the minimum
preset and this is to try and remove the
GPU as the bottleneck and then we will
look at the highest preset that the game
has and this is to see what a more
typical gaming experience will be like
okay now before we get to the results I
wanted to quickly go over what single
and dual Channel means now if you look
at a motherboard you’ll see these long
slots beside the CPU now typically there
are four of these but sometimes there
are two of them and depending on the
motherboard chipset there may be eight
most mainstream chipsets will have four
and these four are broken up into two
channels a channel and B Channel both
with a 1 and a 2 so we get a 1 a 2 and B
1 B 2 to use dual channel you’ll need to
have one stick of RAM in both a channel
and B channel such as a 2 and B 2
everyone got that good here are the
specs – my aunt Esther ik the
motherboard is an asrock X 470 Taichi
the CPU is a risin 520 600 with all
cores overclocked to
4.1 gigahertz the CPU cooler is the up
here ac-12 RGB the GPU is an overclocked
ZOTAC gtx 1070 mini the ram i’m using is
the g.skill Aegis 8 gig dims that are
running at 3,000 megahertz and the
timings are 16 18 1838 the PSU is an
EVGA 650 GQ and I have the games loaded
up on a team group 1 terabyte SATA 3 SSD
now on to the results I started the
testing in Far Cry 5 at the low preset
and check most dim configurations and
the results were as to be expected the
one a kick dim was the slowest the two a
kick dims
single-channel were slightly faster the
to a kick dims running dual-channel or
again slightly faster and running three
or four dims are pretty much within the
margin of error of the two a kick dims
running a dual-channel
this was the only title and preset that
I was testing so many different dim
configurations call this a proof of
concept and yes I know some games may
not have such a gap between single
channel and dual channel but the
opposite is likely true as well that the
game may have more of an FPS gap it all
depends on the type dirt for is next the
one a kick dim still managed to reach
287 FPS on average with the one percent
lows at 239 having two 8gig dims running
in single channel gave a three and a
half percent gain to both the average
FPS and the one percent lows running to
a kick dims in dual Channel gave an
additional 8% gain to the average FPS
and a nine percent gain to the one
percent lows testing for a gig dims
added another two percent to the average
FPS while only adding one percent to the
one percent lows the next title up is
Resident Evil 2 1 a kick dim reached 147
FPS on average with the 1% lows dropping
to under a hundred the to 8gig dims
running in single channel gave a minor
boost to a hundred and fifty three
average FPS and the one percent lows
were able to stay over 102 a geek dims
running a dual channel gave a massive
17% gain to the average FPS and a
whopping 22 and a half percent gain to
the one percent lows having all four
dims added only another 4 FPS to the
average for a total of 183 with the one
percent lows at 130 on to the division 2
and we see much the same thing 1 a gig
dim reached 154 FPS on average with the
1% lows dropping to under 95 FPS to 8
gig dims running in single channel aim a
boost of 6 and a half percent to the
PS and a seven and a half percent boost
to the one percent lows allowing it to
hit 102 eight gig dims in dual channel
gives an eleven and a half percent gain
to the average FPS and an eighteen
percent gain to the one percent lows
with four dims the average FPS was 188
and the one percent lows were 120 for
the last title is more hammer verma tied
to one eight gig dim had an average FPS
of 126 with the one percent lows at
eighty five to eight gig dims running in
single channel managed to bring the
average FPS up to 131 and the one
percent lows or unchanged at eighty five
to eight gig dims in dual channel give
nearly a 17 percent gain to the average
FPS bringing it up to 153 while the one
percent lows jumped twenty three and a
half percent to 105 for dims brought the
average FPS up to 158 and the one
percent lows to a hundred and six so
when using a2 and b2 as the baseline as
this is the recommended configuration
there is an average loss of 14 and a
half percent on average when using one a
cube dim and a sixteen and point four
percent loss to the one percent lows
when using to a keg dims in single
channel there’s an average loss of ten
and a half percent to the average FPS
and a twelve point eight percent loss to
the one percent lows playing with for a
kick dims had a modest boost of two
percent to the average FPS and a
two-and-a-half percent boost to the one
percent lows so as you can see when we
remove the GPU as the bottleneck there
can be a sizable performance difference
between single channel and dual channel
okay now let’s see what happens when we
stress the GPU a little bit more
starting with Far Cry 5 at Ultra one a
gig dim managed an average FPS of 85
with one percent lows at 64 to 8 gig
dims running in single channel
eighty-eight FPS while the 1% lows were
at 66 to a gig dims running in
dual-channel
average 95 FPS with the 1% lows at 68
and running with all four dims gave an
average of 97 FPS with the one percent
lows going up to 75 which is a 10
percent gain over the two a key dims
running in dual-channel dirt for at the
ultra preset had won a gig dim being
able to reach an average FPS of a
hundred and six with the one percent
lows at 78 to eight gig dims running in
single channel are within the margin of
error of the one a gig dim now to eight
gig dims in dual channel gave a little
more than a three and a half percent
gain to the average FPS while seeing a
seven and a half percent gain to the one
percent lows and running all for a gig
dims didn’t change anything at all
Resident Evil 2 at the max preset had
won a gig dim able to reach an average
FPS of a hundred and seven with the one
percent lows at 78 to eight gig dims
running in single channel are within the
margin of error of the 188 dim to eight
gig dims running in dual channel gave a
two FPS game to the average over the
single channel test while we see a 5
percent gain to the one percent lows and
again running all for it gig dims didn’t
change anything over the other dual
channel test Division two at Ultra we
see one 8 gig dim reaches an average FPS
of 68 with the one percent lows at 46 –
a key dims running in single channel on
average had a 69 FPS and the one percent
lows are improved to 51 and that’s an 11
percent gain now this indicates that 8
gigs is simply not adequate when playing
Division 2 on Ultra to a gig dims in
dual channel ran at an average of 70 FPS
and we see an increase of
seven-and-a-half percent for the one
percent lows and again we see 4 8 gig
dims didn’t change anything over the
other dual
we’ll test vermintide to at extreme one
a gig dim had an average FPS of 84 with
the 1% lows at 62 a keg dims running in
single channel managed to bring the
average FPS up to 90 with the 1% lows at
63 to 8 gig dims running in dual channel
ran at an average FPS of 100 and the 1%
lows are improved by 17 percent to 74
now this indicates that vermintide 2
really prefers dual channel memory
configurations and to finish it off the
4 gig dims brought the average FPS up to
106 and the 1% lows to 78 as you can see
the difference between most
configurations are much smaller now that
we are more GPU bound and again using a
2 B 2 as our baseline there is a 7% loss
to the average FPS when using one 8 gig
dim and a 10 and a half percent loss to
the 1% lows when using to a gig dims in
single channel there is a loss of 5% to
the average FPS and a 7 percent loss to
the 1% lows and with 4 8 gig dims we see
a 1 and a half percent gain to the
average FPS and a 3 percent boost to the
1% lows so what did we learn we learned
that as always it depends on what title
you’re planning on playing and what
graphics card you have in your system
because if you are someone who likes
playing at the highest settings possible
and only have a mid-range graphics card
then there’s a pretty good chance that
you won’t see much of a difference
between single and dual channel but on
the other hand if you’re someone who
likes playing at high refresh rates much
like myself then using dual channel
configs to keep those frame times as
smooth as possible would be in your best
interest
another argument someone could make
would be for budget builds because if
you break down the frames per dollar
then using a single dim can make a lot
of sense but at the time of recording in
the middle of 2019 ramp prices have
gotten pretty affordable so you’d
probably only really be saving about 42
50 dollars going with the 180 dim now
that is depending on the type of RAM you
go with and on top of that I feel the
days of eight gigs being enough for
gaming are certainly numbered now this
is because more and more games are
starting to have eight gigs being the
minimum requirements and because of that
I would certainly recommend buying 16
gigs now if you want to buy one 16 gig
dim or to 8 gig dims that’s on you but
if you want to have the best gaming
experience possible you should be going
with 16 gigs well that’s it for now is
