Hello,

I was wondering what the main advantages of having 32GB of RAM would be for my system.

In am using Premiere pro 2015.1

I had 16GB of RAM before. Will 32GB help me get faster render/export times? Will it aid performance for big projects and sequences?

Thanks :)

You won't necessarily see faster renders or exports. You will more likely see better overall performance from applications, since pagefile use and/or disk activity will be reduced.

System:
Dell Precision T7600 (x2)
Win 7 64-bit
32GB RAM
Adobe CC 2014 (as of 7/2015)
256GB SSD system drive
4 internal media drives RAID 5
Typically cutting short form from HD MP4 and P2 MXF.

Thanks Jon,

i'm not sure what you mean by 'overall' performance?

Thanks,
Oscar

I found it was absolutely necessary to have 32gb of system ram
when editing 4k sequences.

my systems were VERY sluggish with 16gb. 32gb made them much more responsive.

Oscar, think of RAM as the top of your "desk" where you are doing your work.

If you have a very small "Desk" (less RAM) you cannot keep as many items up there. This means you have to go back and forth to stacks or materials elsewhere in your "office", or back and forth in "file cabinets". This is the kind of disk activity that goes on behind the scenes, as your computer works to put in front of you the things you need at the moment.

A Bigger "desk" (more RAM) means you can keep more things in easy reach - less going back and forth. Faster access.

Your operating system is the muscle, the lifeblood in your system. More RAM means more muscle from your OS as well as more room for your applications. Overall performance improves.

System:
Dell Precision T7600 (x2)
Win 7 64-bit
32GB RAM
Adobe CC 2014 (as of 7/2015)
256GB SSD system drive
4 internal media drives RAID 5
