    Hardware Adding RAM

    I'm thinking about adding an additional 16 GB of RAM to my system (I already have 16). Would this make a difference in encoding times or would I be wasting my money? I don't know why you'd need the following data but I'm sure someone is going to ask... I have an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and two 8 GB sticks of Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3000C15 (I would add an additional two sticks).

      probably wouldn't hurt to get a newer more powerful graphics card
      such as Nvidia, GTX 1050 or higher, 1070 or 1080 if you plan to do UHD discs - https://forum.dvdfab.cn/forum/softwa...ade-windows-10

        I've been using dvdfab products since 2006 (but am new to the forum). I'm certainly not an expert when it comes to this. Someone more in the 'know' on how much RAM a dvdfab product uses might have something additional to say.

        In your original post, you didn't mention if you are seeing high RAM allocation/usage in general. And you didn't mention what product you were using when you said "encoding times" (i.e. dvdfab, streamfab, etc.).

        So I am going to use streamfab as an example.

        I did an 'unofficial' test of streamfab (using a basic benchmark program) and what resources and how much of those resources were impacted when:

        1) opening streamfab
        2) downloading a 2hr 26 movie (h.264, 1080p, 5.1 EAC, and subs)
        3) processing and re-muxing the video

        There was only a slight increase in RAM usage when I opened streamfab; and no appreciable increase in RAM usage throughout the entire process. Mostly it was increases and decreases in CPU and GPU usage during the 'processing' and 'encoding' phases---which, of course is to be expected---and they were fairly light.

        I should mention I have a very capable PC that I am running my dvdfab products on (dvdfab 12, AI smoother, streamfab, etc. etc.) So perhaps because of that I am not seeing much of an impact as others might see.

        Also, I closely monitor what is running in the background of my PC; and routinely kill processes that I am not using; and restrict what processes will start when I start-up my PC. So my general resource usage might be lower than what others may typically see.

        My PC:
        AMD Ryzen 9 5950X Processor, 16-core / 32-thread @ 3.4GHz, (4.9GHz Boost), 64MB L3 Cache
        10GB EVGA NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming GDDR6X video card
        128gb Corsair Vengeance LED, DDR4, 3200MHz (4 x 32, i.e. 4 32gb sticks)

        Now, to your question about adding more RAM. It couldn't hurt. If you are seeing high RAM usage on your rig, it wouldn't hurt to add more. By doing so, the only negative effect is to your wallet. You may not need an entire additional 16gb (even, perhaps, no additonal RAM at all), so you may not 'see' much 'benefit' after the upgrade.

        I realize it's not much of an answer, but when it comes to RAM usage (how much the OS uses, how much the OS allocates for use, how much a program uses) is a murky area. If you do a search on this subject on the net, you'll see all sorts of opinions/answers--even from the 'experts'.

        Final thought: I say this, if you can afford it, and want to throw in another 16gb; go for it! Personally, I think, based on your system, 32gb would be a nice amount and should more than cover your needs.
