CPU

WEI scores the Ram at 5.9... this can't be acceptable considering my Dell Latitude work laptop scores 7.2 on 4GB @ 1600

CPU-Z shows all 4GB at 1600 (so does BIOS)

Anyone know why this would be?

Thanks

  1. possibly because your RAM isn't dual channel

    Could be because you only have 1 stick so its running in single channel mode, get a 2nd stick of that and run it in dual channel to increase performance.

  4. Yes, you need two sticks to run in dual channel which is faster than single channel. Also, the amount of memory is taken into account. I have 32GB of 1600mhz memory and score a 7.9.
  5. Ok i never knew that one. I'll order another stick. So if i wanted 4GB total, the best way would have been 2- GB sticks to achieve dual channel?
  6. Yep 2x2Gb stick in quad channel would offer better performance. might aswell go for 8gb over 4 given how cheap ram currently is.
