Question regarding Octane VI?

Hi,

I'm considering to buy Octane VI 17 inches laptop.

But I don't know how the system works:

If you choose 2x 16 Gb ram from Cosair (DDR4 - 2400mhz).

How many slots of ram are there in total in this laptop?

Will I still be able to upgrade - by adding 2 more 16x 2 cosair DDR4 2400 MHz in the future?

Or do I have to order this laptop with 4c 16 gb ram in order to have that version with 4 slots of ram?

Will everyone who orders octane no matter how much of ram you order have access to 4 slots or ram so they can by themselves upgrade to maximum 64 gb ram in the future?

And what is the maximum amounts of ram this laptop can take?

Anyone who knows or any official staff can please confirm?

I really need to know before ordering. Would be very grateful for any answers. Thank you in advance!

Same with any motherboard, the DIMM slots are part of the motherboard and not configurable. This laptop takes a max of 64gb in 4 DIMMS

Why on earth do you want so much RAM though? I can think of very few uses where that much RAM in a laptop would make sense.

I was thinking to be future proof and second reason is: will that be even possible to buy 16Gb 2400 MHz rams in the future?

Is this the identical rams which this laptop is using?

But what are you using the laptop for?

The term future proof actually doesn't really mean anything in computer terms. You buy the best you can afford, but more doesn't necessarily mean better. Certain uses require certain configurations and going over does nothing to improve performance.

I'm using it for a lot of internet tabs, I work as a manager who ordering stuff in a big company and sometimes I work from home.

Not kidding but there are occasions I have almost 1000 tabs up at the same time.

But will that ram i linked fit to this laptop? Is that the same ram pc specialist is using for this laptop?

You’d have to wait until you received the laptop to find out what model RAM they had and match it with another pair.

Is it just me wondering how you scroll through 1000 tabs and have any idea where the tab would be you're looking for?

And q2... How much ram does 1000 tabs actually require?!

According to google devs, in chrome (which is the biggest memory hog and a power user would never use anyway):

A typical 8GB RAM and i7 Processor can crash out your google chrome for around ~9600 tabs.


To the OP, there is zero requirement for that much RAM, seriously, zero.

Start off with 16Gb and to some tests to see how you get on. And if you're using Google Chrome, just stop it, that's silly. At least use Firefox which utilises about half the RAM of chrome.
