I need much RAM for big data simulations.
Currently, I have an A8-7600 with 8GiB RAM on an ASrock FM2A88X Extreme 4+ and thought about upgrading it with 4x16GiB DDR3-1866. I take 1866 MHz modules because I did not find any 16GiB RAM modules that run at 2133 MHz.
Then I thought about investing just 500 Euro more and take the Ryzen 5 2400G +4x16GiB 2933MHz RAM. However, there are different opinions in other forums. For Raven Ridge, I find the recommendation to run 4 DR DIMMS at 2133MHz.
Others say, they have a stable configuration with Ryzen processors+4 DIMMs at 2933MHz (with AGESA). Now, what is correct? Would a configuration that is mentioned in the title run properly?
Note: I am doctoral student and I have no further access to the simulation machine at university. Therefore, I need my own. I do not play computer games - unless Monkey Island 5 appears.
