    • Gigs in RAM are the same.. what you have to check is RAM SPEED. 4 gig 2400MHz is the same as 16 gig 2400MHz But a 4 gig 3200MHz is.. well better than 16 gig 2400MHz in terms of speed. Does not mean you have higher RAM gig you got higher speed lmao! duh..

  • I think, at least in my experience, the difference of RAM is more noticeable when multitasking as opposed to single tasks. When I have multiple apps and browsers open I noticed the difference in speed and lag when I upgraded my old laptop from 8GB to 16GB. Maybe you can test this in the next video

  • I suppose the question comes down to multi tasking. Granted, it may be comparable when both machines are running only one program each, be it video editing or otherwise. However, when editing our videos, we also have chrome tabs open and are creating thumbnails etc. Thats where the extra ram is invaluable

  • ALL the RAM memory is stored on and drawn from the chip...the 8 GB is SWAPPING between the chip and hard drive...the 16 GB much less so...the difference in performance is found in RAM intensive apps as the 16 GB model does NOT have to "swap"...if you do not use RAM intensive apps 8 GB is enough...otherwise get the 16 GB...in the long-run your (upgradable) hard drive will thank you.

  • 8GB Ram and 1TB SSD or 16GB Ram and 512GB SSD? I am wavering between the two options. Mainly normal office applications but also in the hobby area image editing with Lightroom and cutting a little holiday videos (HD or 4K). I still have a NAS with 4TB

  • Indeed, very informative. But... why focus on a savings of $200 due to 16 GB of RAM when RAM can always be useful? Apple inventory stock is mostly based on the 8 GB of RAM. So profits are clearly better on these vs the 16 GB. As a User, there is better value on the 16 GB. Notice that non of the offers have a 16 GB version.

  • A bit cringe. Free memory doesn’t tell you how much is actually being used (this is why that value plus the used value doesn’t equal the total). You have a “used” metric, why aren’t you using that?

    Joshua VanderburgJoshua Vanderburg10 dagen geleden
  • Okay guys, so I know absolutely nothing about all this technical stuff, but after watching the video, I have come to the following conclusion: For a regular university student like myself, who will not do any heavy editing, rendering, or whatever, the 8GB RAM version would be more than enough. I will only be making regular assignments and writing reports which requires heavy Google search action ;) But I think that the 8GB version would do the job, and I'm wondering if you agree. So yeah, just wondering if that is a correct assumption haha. Great video, I love how detailed it is!

  • finally after many ppl used M1 for themselves figured it out 8GB is not enough and swifted to 16Gb.. I think that's true, I felt often laggy in 8GB.. its kinda of,, not very noticeable lag... until you use 16GB. you can feel it when you changed it.

  • Is 8 GB of RAM enough for the MacBook Pro? Mostly watching Word applications and videos and surfing, but sometimes playing 6h Command & Conquer, I think it would make more sense to spend more on 512 GB SSD. How long does the SSD last (service life)? I'm just afraid that gaming will stress the SSD.

  • What about running a programming IDE and compiling the source code that uses let’s say the docker preview for M1 and opening microsoft teams plus a web browser at the same time. Will the 8 gig model handle that ?

    Ziyad MestourZiyad Mestour14 dagen geleden
  • The 10% difference seems small, but people need to remember that the M1 chip is only going to get better. What happens when Applications start actually being written for the M1 natively? Rather than being emulated off older software? I reckon the 16GB will start pulling away. As it sits today, no it’s probably not worth it - but anyone buying a MacBook is likely hoping to keep it for the next 5-10 years....

  • Wait. What?? What most of these benchmarks and respective memory usage seem to show is, that the swap memory (on the ssd) that the chip uses to compensate for the lack of memory on the 8gb model, is nearly identical in speed to the dedicated ram. WHAT. If thats true and apple can improve on that, it means maybe sometime in the future, there will be no need for big (or at all) ram anymore. Ah yeah and of course you can safe your 200 bucks. Thanks so much for this comprehensive test. I still can not believe the implications here...

  • I've had my 13" MBP 8gb 512SSD for one day now with the M1 and I am still at 36 percent battery after over 11 hours of video streaming on NLworld watching 1080p+ videos, all while my photos and everything else from the cloud is downloading and zero heat, zero fan even with multiple pages open its incredible. I have a 2020 MBP 13" 16gb ram and I5 chip that only lasts 4:21 minutes with just a 8 hour video I pressed play and left (that was without sound unlike my m1 which had sound on entire time). I honestly will now use the junk I5 for a fixed desktop setup with my 4k monitor usb-c charges it and connects it. Sad that it cannot be used with Big Sur without MAJOR hiccups but the new M1 works FLAWLESSLY.. apple wallet, safari 4k etc.. even Safari on NLworld is not shown as using significant power which my older 2020 i5 shows and the fan goes on immediately with more than one page open, or with NLworld and safari. Save up and go with an M1 chip, you definitely don't need the extra ram unless rendering 8k like the video shows. Love the new M1, never going back to intel! Happy New Years.-Cheers

  • So, here's my anecdotal experience. I bought a MacBook Air with 16 gb. I had it for three weeks when it turned into a brick. I had to return it. I still needed a computer though, but I couldn't get another 16 gb MBA for weeks. So I bought a Mac Mini 8 gb at BestBuy to tide me over. The difference in playback of my DCI BMPCC4k Prores 422 is fairly pronounced. Dropping a lot of frames in "better quality." The MBA played through it like butter. And if I remember correctly, the Mac Mini has that extra GPU core. Yes? No? So, at least in my experience, the 16 gb made a big difference. I'll be returning this Mac Mini.

  • £999 for a base MBA or 1499 for 512GB 16GB RAM MBA. I personally think for the near 50% price difference, you're better off buying the base model, and then buying the base model again next year when they refresh MBP unless you know you need the RAM and space. Just doesn't seem worth it for the casual user.

    aoFeliXaoFeliX29 dagen geleden
  • For those who are short on time, if you do heavy tasks and have 8gb of ram, the computer is gonna take a part of the ssd as additionnal ram to help, which will decrease greatly the lifespan of your ssd (at least a section of it). Keep your ssd healthier, go for 16gb, and it's more future proof.

    Kurt Jherich ValenciaKurt Jherich ValenciaMaand geleden
  • The biggest difference is longevity. With the m1 macs, they use the ssd as RAM whenever the actual RAM is busy. This deteriorates the SSD, making it slow down faster than it should. So if you want an extra 1-2 years out of your MacBook, go for 16gb.
