The aim is to debunk or confirm a few myths about computer memory. I've seen a lot of forums touting (without supporting data) that dual-channel is somehow completely useless, and to the same tune, we've seen similar counter-arguments that buying anything less than 2 sticks of RAM is foolish.

This is one of the tech questions I've been asking. I'm in a dilemma, what RAM should I buy the Quad channel DDR3 or the Dual Channel only?.. Correct me if I'm wrong, the Quad channel RAM storage is up to 8?.

Isn't this article 5 years too late? We have had quad channel RAM for a while.
