I was wondering if someone with this model of laptop could assist me in understanding if adding a second 16gb ram stick really would make a large impact in gaming performance once it unlocks the dual channel mode.
I'm currently running the stock 16gb stick and have noticed even with my most intensive games, I never go above 10gb ram...so adding another 16 would be purely just to utilize the dual channel support.
(FYI Not interested in 2x8 GB ram sticks, if I'm paying that much I'd rather just upgrade to 32)
With my current single stick I average well above 80+ FPS in BF5 and 100+ in Overwatch. 70+ in other, smaller games.
Is there any mega boost I would experience...or should I just hold off until later?
If you did upgrade, and see significant performance changes, where did you get your stick?
Does adding another stick cause CPU/GPU temps to run hotter? I've just barely stabilized the thermals with my current settings, I would hate to screw it up with another stick.
Thanks for the video- I did watch it and it was helpful.
The questions still stand though, especially since performance varies from laptop to laptop depending on the specs inside.
I guess I'm just wondering if it's really worth buying a $110 product if it just means an extra 5-10 FPS.
Just a quick important question and for you guys there with same model as mine (GL504GW) With single channel stick (16x1). I Just recently found out using the app (CPU-Z) that my brand of the stick i have is SK Hynix a brand i have never heard of.
Anyways please anyone with the same laptop specs if you can reply with the brand that came with yours?
I have watched multiple videos on YouTube mentioning that they have the laptop arriving with a (SAMSUNG Single stick.
I only ask this to take my suspicions away.
