    A 64-thread machine with just 16 GB of RAM will probably be something of a swapfest, assuming you're ever actually using most of the cores.
    This is out of context I was replying to the Vistaus he was saying that he would be fine with 8gb. of course 32cores a 64 threads is not normal and also not normal according workloads

      The value and utility of the product simply isn't enough, on its own, to be worth the recipient's time or not using an option they might even prefer. In exchange for sums of money often quite substantially more than the value of the products, the company gets to control how it's presented and promoted.
      Yes, correct on all counts. But I'm not sure who/what you're responding to. Me thinks this thread has been majorly derailed, lol.

        8 GB? No sir, not me!

          One can tradeoff ram for cpu, through z-ram. You can z-ram the 15gb and make them something like 30+ effectively... With all the cpu power available, real time mem compression/decompression won't be an issue.

            Yeah I think you have to run MEMMAKER.EXE and reboot twice to update the CONFIG.SYS.

              Well, I have to wait some time to get my budget back on demanded level. That one is interesting!

                Lol... but seriously it's very useful. I managed to prolong desktop use on ancient ddr2 and ddr3 equipment way past their useful lifetimes and without OOM and swapiness being an issue that makes the system crawl. I've stopped using it just recently since I now have 16GB and I'm not really using my RAM to its 100%, let alone past that mark.

                If I'm not mistaken android phones are using zram and windows10 also uses memory compression nowadays.

                • Don't forget that this is a quad channel system

                  Generally ram comes in ddr4 8GB sticks, and he's trying to have a powerful system so more memory bandwidth

                  That's atleast 4x2x8
