Is 8GB of RAM Enough In 2018?

Published on Feb 5, 2018 3,820,174 views

The commonly held wisdom is that you can get by with 8GB of RAM, but with how much Chrome and Windows 10 use does this still hold up in 2018?

Most modern games and your Windows OS can easily use around 7GB RAM according to Windows Task Manager and MSI Afterburner. Better to be 16GB which is minimum recommended for VR gaming according to AMD that way you don't have to worry about limiting yourself so much.

  • Ionut Croitoru
    Ionut Croitoru 4 месяца назад @Комите́т госуда́рственной безопа́сности like I said, it does improve your performance and experience in games, but it doesn't use less memory. My first problem is usage. FPS is still decent as long as the usage is less than 7.5 GB of RAM. When I'll have money, I'll definitely buy another stick of 8GB of RAM.
  • Комите́т госуда́рственной безопа́сности
    Комите́т госуда́рственной безопа́сности 4 месяца назад @Ionut Croitoru Dual channel increases the speed of your ram, and thus allows your computer to load things onto ur ram faster and load things off faster, which can cause 15% fps improvements in most games.
  • Ionut Croitoru
    Ionut Croitoru 4 месяца назад Комите́т госуда́рственной безопа́сности from what I know, single channel just give me worse performance, not more usage of ram.

  • Ionut Croitoru
    Ionut Croitoru 4 месяца назад @Slice Z For me, it isn't. Can't play gta onlone, shadow of the tomb raider, battlefield v and many others. It uses 8/8 gb ram and starts paging file on the hard disk which means lag, and fps drop. Not playable. I saw a deal on newegg, 85$ 16gb DDR4 3000MHZ CL16, but I don't have money and also they don't deliver in my country.

    Flinch 9 месяцев назад 8G is enough for 64 bit, now [using the standard MS rule of thumb: multiply their minimum memory required by 4]. But if you want to make sure your machine can survive the next bloatware attack [ahem, upgrade] by Redmond... better make it 16 just to be safe. But I would be remiss to leave out one honorable mention: Adobe and it's ever expanding, hard drive clogging, boot time lagging, network slowing offerings. And shame on the companies that think a pdf format provides security: it provides just a minute enhancement.

  • Chris Wyble
    Chris Wyble 10 месяцев назад I'm still rocking the same 4g since 2010kinda thinking about bumping up to 8g lately, just to see what difference it makes. My MBP has produced, start to finish, 3 albums for me in that time and I'm constantly creating in between that, not to mention the projects I work on for friends. I don't game on it, so I can't speak for that, but I do download and stream a whole lot of movies. I'm not a Mac snob, in fact I'm pissed at them for telling me this one couldn't upgrade further than Snow Leopard cause of the hardware, when with a minimal amount of research, I've been running El Capitan for almost a year now. My point is, it's got alot more to do with how you educate yourself and how you maintain your machine.The more you understand what you're looking at and have, at least, SOME idea of the processes going on, the more likely it is that, the serious issues known to body most computers, you'll have emptied with the trash when it was still just a minor glitch.

    tarrker 10 месяцев назад +Ezzedine Gamer "stop this"? LoL what? This is my first comment and I'm sharing my opinion. How dare I? I'm actually kind of in the same boat with you on that one except I'm poor as a dog. Most weeks I'm lucky if I can afford food. Needless to say my wife keeps me from spending any money on hardware. My PSU took a dumb earlier this year. The only reason I even have a computer right now is because my little brother is awesome and just got me a new one. He earns boatloads of money at his job. I could probably do the same if I had a functional body and brain. x_x

The smaller games in early 90's fit easily in 720KB disk, even on 360KB, but already in the very early nineties there were multi-diskette games. Some could be played from disks (the game asked to "insert disk #4" and most could be installed on HDD if you had the space. Then there were games which had to be installed and required a lot of RAM too, like DooM for example. And in the end of 90's it was already CD's mostly.

Whoops, it seems that 4GB means 4 000 000 000 bytes, not 4 294 967 296 bytes, as 'free -m' command shows that my 16GB setup has total of 15850MB of RAM - the old 1000 vs. 1024 scam. P.S. my first ever computer had memory space of one megabyte, and not many games used even nearly that much.

    Soviet Reunion 6 месяцев назад This is why I use Firefox. Gave up on Chrome years ago when it became nearly unusable due to the crazy RAM usage. Ironically the only reason I ever switched to Chrome in the first place is that it had lower RAM usage than Firefox way back when it still had a small fraction of Firefox's market share.

    fghsgh 3 месяца назад @Vlado Vladimirovich that is because it uses windows' internal rendering engine, which is not counted into the ram usage

    fghsgh 4 месяца назад (изменено) Try Waterfox! It looks like Firefox from before version 57 (including compatibility for legacy addons but all other security) and my whole system-wide RAM usage with 40-50 tabs open is just 2 GB, although I should say that is on Linux. EDIT: plus it actually doesn't spy on you
  • Pop Films
    Pop Films 4 месяца назад Yeah I switched back to Firefox about a year ago for that reason. I still never have more than 5 tabs open but between that and Lightroom or Premiere my PC got really slow.

  • Richard Atkinson
    Richard Atkinson 5 месяцев назад I noticed this issue recently, and managed to find minimum and recommended RAM for Chromium. It said on a Windows machine they actually recommend you to have 16GB Ram but you can get by on 8GB. So I no longer see the point on using any chromium based browsers any more. I didn't actually mind MS Edge, but with the news that they are going to the Chromium source too, I won't be using it. I too have gone back to Firefox whose recommended RAM is 4GB.

    Håkon T. 5 месяцев назад With like 40 Youtube tabs you might get 4gb ram usage, tested it just now, with on Youtube tab my Chrome browser fills about .5 gb RAM, maybe a bit much for a web browser, but not "crazy RAM usage".

  • Fusion42 Music
    Fusion42 Music 6 месяцев назад Right? What is up with Chrome lately. I also used to use Firefox back in the day, before Chrome was as big a deal as it is now. At the time, Chrome seemed so much more streamlined / fast. It's such a RAM-hog these d
  • Riza Guntur Prakoso
    Riza Guntur Prakoso 3 недели назад I don't really need 16GB of RAM. Instead, I need 12GB of RAM.
  • Riza Guntur Prakoso
    Riza Guntur Prakoso 2 недели назад @Shut da hell up Yes and no. Yes sure the bigger the better. But the no is based on the fact: I often use only 6 to 10GB of RAM usage. I bought a stick of 16GB tough since my laptop only has 1 slot of RAM. One more: RAM upgrade is depend on your wallet :D When you have money, buy the best. When it is limited, better spend on what you need.
  • Shut da hell up
    Shut da hell up 2 недели назад but buying 8 and 4 sticks are kinda not worth it, instead just buy 16gb and ur good to go for quite some time
  • R6ex
    R6ex 3 недели назад Same here. While frequently running out of memory on my 8GB laptop, I'm usually just at around 60% usage on my 16GB desktop. 12GB will be ideal for some time.

  • Mica Madness
    Mica Madness 1 месяц назад (изменено) My current 2013 build (using 2012 components) replaced a single core 2GHz AMD XP2400+ w/2GB of ram. Lasted 9.5 years and I only retired it when YouTube videos, regardless of network bandwidth available, simply did not work. I was tempted to try Windows 10 on it but ran out of driver/firmware options at that point for a stable system.. Be proud of making 2GB last that long, it will make your next PC that much more satisfying. Make it work until it's truly obsolete and can't do the most basic functions. For me, streaming videos in an HD era with more than enough network bandwidth available was the final straw. The bottleneck was identified and it was time. I'll retire this system probably for similar circumstances 3 years from now.

  • HotRodX
    HotRodX Год назад To those that would say I dont understand economics/ supply and demand... 539$ for a 1050ti is price gouging when there are 14 different models on newegg right now. Not supply and demand. I can agree the high end cards are selling out instantly so there is a supply and demand for those but we are being price gouged on in stock/ readily available low end gpu's.

  • HotRodX
    HotRodX Год назад Gpu shoppers please read :) I strongly suggest everybody go to retailers customer service and start an online chat or call/text chat with a customer service rep. Politely ask about the GPU price gouging. See if they will sell one at or near retail if you can prove its for gaming. Micro Center is supposedly doing the retail for proven gamers deal so why cant other retailers. This price gouging isnt miners, AMD or Nvidias fault. Lets take our questions to the people who are screwing us gamers over. The retailers!!! Go start an online chat with the retailer of your choice customer service department. Lets show them that thousands of us gamers and loyal customers think this is nonsense to set us aside after years of being loyal customers. Please be polite and courteous to the customer service as its not their fault. They are just our way to contact the retailers and show there are many of us who just want to buy our components like we have for years from our favorite retail outlet. Feel welcome to repost this to spread the message. Thanks for reading. :)
