128GB of DDR4 Memory!!! Does more RAM = better performance?

When Corsair offered to lend us a kit of their 128 GIGABYTE DDR4 memory, it was hard to turn them down… But is 128GB of DDR4 really necessary?

Unum sed Leonem says:

Is that to say, there won’t be a difference in performance in a Mac with, say, 16GB (or 32GB) RAM vs 128GB RAM for Photoshop, LightRoom, Safari (tens of tabs open at any time), iTunes and App Store and a number of background apps running, ceteris paribus (everything else being equal)?

Strange, because My 2010 17″ MacBook Pro memory (maxed out to, unfortunately, measly 8GB) is almost full at all times (more so with a browser with some 20-30 tabs open and Photoshop and LightRoom running in the background). I’ve even had quite frequent crashes lately (in some cases couldn’t properly restart the computer without resorting to outlandish measures when restarting PRAM, Safe Mode and so on failed to work).

Would like you to see running something like an in-memory database like SAP HANA (free trial available) and generate some memory intensive business analytics reports. That’ll be cool to see.
You might argue that this is a desktop and nobody runs those things on a desktop, but nobody runs benchmarks on a desktop either.
Since we are at it, why not give it a shot?
This is LTT after all – the place where we test insane things. 🙂

Crispened Ham says:

the ram isnt the bottleneck, and soon the computer wont be either… soon enough the game /benchmark will be the bottleneck
