Understanding RAM usage and recommendation

Post by Alex » Thu Jul 02, 2020 9:32 am

Hello simlab,

I would like to better understand how Simlab Composer is using RAM and how i can improve it.
Right now, I am using 2x16GB DDR4 3200 C14

Sample project
Filesize 381MB

The taskmanager reports:
RAM usage with clean start of SC 3,9GB
RAM usage once file is loaded 8,3GB
RAM usage while rendering 28GB

So I already combined materials and so on.
1.Just kindly asking where do the 20GB come from? Is there a way to reduce it? :D

I think about upgrading to 4x16 GB RAM. But it would be only Dual Channel due to my plattform (Crosshair 6 Hero, AM4, X370 Chipset)

2. Does a workstation with Quadchannel support and even faster Ram noticabely reduce the time from pressing F4/F5 to start rendering?

Thank you! :)

Best regards
