Add 16gb RAM module extra to a 8gb RAM laptop


I was planning to add a new 16gb RAM module (DDR4 3200), to a new laptop gen12. What do you think? Make sense? Or better go for a 8gb RAM?

Thank you in advance,


If you only have one get exactly the same

Entirely up to you, but I would check to make sure you match the module speed as a more important factor than size

The only disadvantage with an 8+16 configuration is that you won’t see the inherent speed increase from having dual channel RAM across the full 24GB.

If you know you need more than 16GB total RAM, there’s nothing wrong with going to 24GB now and there’s always that room to upgrade to 32GB by replacing the 8GB module with a 16GB later on.
