    Wow!.. 32 GB on a G74.

    Mine has 16 GB and methinks its already fast.

    @fostert:
    What do you think about the added benefits (e.g. gaming, etc.) of using 32 GB, aside from what you've mentioned in your own thread?

    ok just got 2x8GB from amazon

    BIOS recognizes 24GB RAM
    And Windows 7 Ultimate also sees 24GB

    Cool, now final push to 32GB =)

    @fostert:
    What do you think about the added benefits (e.g. gaming, etc.) of using 32 GB, aside from what you've mentioned in your own thread?
    I suppose if you've got a game that'll use this much RAM if it sees that its available, then it would be spectacular. I'm not a gamer so i don't know if today's games would expand themselves into 32GB? Question for the crew on these forums.

    I need it specifically because I can now run 8 individual instances of my single-threaded code, each instance of which will use a few GBs each. 32GB really allows me to take complete advantage of using the 8 virtual cores in the core i7 CPUs. Thats really where I see the power of 32GB for potentially everyone; since most apps nowadays aren't multi-threaded, you must run several instances of the same app if you want multi-threaded performance, and each instance can then have a huge chunk of RAM to itself.

    Also my display and visualization program will simply take any amount of RAM that it sees available to it if called for, so 32GB means I can load more data at a time to have a good detailed look at. Heck it would even use 256GB of RAM if I could cram that much into the G74.

    I doubt loading up your G74 with 32GB of RAM will make it any faster at all, unless you're already pushing the limits of the 16GB you have in there already.

    Thats excellent! Good to see that you have Ultimate too, which will be able to address 32GB fully.

    Never dealt with KomputerBay brand b4, but I'm sure its alright. Give your sticks a full test with memtest86+ (download and burn an ISO from here -> http://www.memtest.org/download/4.20...+-4.20.iso.zip ) and if you don't see any errors then you've got good memory.

    Nice to see folks pushing their G74s to new limits!

    certainly 32GB is not for games but for demanding tech software and massive datas
    thanks for memtest idea

    I suppose I haven't pushed the limits yet of the 16 GB since I'm not a "heavy" user.
    I just use this laptop for games and lighter stuff. So methinks I'll stick on the 16 GB in the meantime.

    Thanks for the info.
