CPU/Memory Question Tags: CPUs RAM Memory Last response: July 20, 2010 8:33 PM in CPUs Share Drailing July 19, 2010 11:28:07 PM Is it okay to not have at least 1GB of RAM per CPU core? I have a 1055T with some G.Skill 2000Mhz RAM (4GB of it). Does this create a performance issue?

And the ram doesn't have to run at the same speed as the cpu. The board will determine the correct speed on the auto setting. You can set the speed manually if you aren't satisfied with the performance. m 0 l Drailing July 20, 2010 12:31:19 AM So it's fine that I have 4GB with 6 cores? m 0 l Related resources CPU+Memory Question - Forum cpu+memory question - Forum CPU/Memory issue - i5-4670K + ASUS Z87-DELUXE/DUAL + CORSAIR VENGEANCE PRO 2400 - Forum svchost (netsvcs) and constant CPU/memory usage - Forum Any way to get a CPU/Memory Usage "gadget" back on Windows 8 Desktop? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

What application do you have that you need a 6 core cpu for? If it is something like CS4, then you can use all the ram you can get. m 0 l amdfangirl a b à CPUs July 20, 2010 2:17:03 PM Well, if you do get a computer with more cores you'd assume you'd use more memory intensive applications because of having more cores to work with. m 0 l enzo matrix a c 131 à CPUs July 20, 2010 8:33:53 PM Drailing said:So it's fine that I have 4GB with 6 cores? It's not "per core". All 6 cores will access the same memory. Having more CPU cores does not at all relate to how much memory your computer will use. memory does not become dedicated to a single CPU core until you get down to the L2 cache, which is on the CPU die itself and usually around 0.5MB. Even the L3 cache is shared between cores. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Computer's Running Slow; CPU/Memory Problem?
