    Is 96 GB too much for daily usage like gaming?

    I now saw hp and dell PCs bragging about 24 gb of ram. But if you read the details it’s 8gb of regular ram and 16gb of optane ram. Is this a scam?

    so basically spending 100 bucks on 16 gb of ram for gaming is pointless because 8gb is just below it a tiny bit

    This seems very esoteric. Is there a channel for the uninitiated?

    There are notebooks in our shops with 2 gb integrated ram, and 256 mb is separated for the integrated vga, with 1,1 ghz cpu, and it comes with windows 10. Are the OEMs insane? πŸ˜€
