4x4gb vs 2x8gb

Go to solution Solved by Spudbilly,

I know the thread is resolved, but one consideration not noted yet is if you are overclocking. Usually 2 dimms vs 4 is better and sometimes extreme you go with just 1 some times. Also dual rank ram modules can perform better than single rank...probably too technical, but there is a difference. 

Will I see a performance difference between a 4x4gb kit and a 2x8gb kit of ddr4 memory if they run at the same speed and latency. thanks

4x will cause more trouble because higher load on the memory bus and with high Clockrates DDR4-3000 or more, its not that easy.

 

And you can upgrade it more easily.

 

THIS POSTING IS SPECIFIC ABOUT DUAL CHANNEL SYSTEMS!

For Quad Channel systems, you obviously get the 4x...
