Finding The Best RAM For Your Win 10 Laptop in 2020

Operating systems are upgraded from time to time. This is the reason that operating systems are massive and due to less space in RAM, the system crashes or runs slowly or is unable to process on time. Therefore, we need to upgrade the system and find the best RAM for your laptop or desktop.

RAM is the third most crucial component of any system after CPU and GPU. We can do fast processing on the system with the help of RAM. Therefore it becomes imperative to find a good RAM. Let us see today how we can find the best RAM for your computer by using some key points.

Choose the right RAM Upgrade By Operating System (OS)

If you are using a Windows operating system, first of all, you have to find out which operating system you have to check and go to My Computer Properties as shown in the picture below.

This is necessary because the minimum and maximum RAM capacities of different operating systems are determined separately. So we have to choose the minimum and maximum capacities of these ranges based on the different versions of Windows.

The following table specifies the limits on physical memory for Windows 10. The minimum requirement of RAM is 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit).

Version Limit on X86 (32bit) Limit on X64 (64bit)
Windows 10 Enterprise 4 GB 6 TB
Windows 10 Education 4 GB 2 TB
Windows 10 Pro for Workstations 4 GB 6 TB
Windows 10 Pro 4 GB 2 TB
Windows 10 Home 4 GB 128 GB

Before upgrading RAM, it is essential to know which operating system you are using and what is the minimum and maximum requirement of it.

Detect the Type of RAM

The second most important thing is to find out the best RAM for your laptop or motherboard is to find out the type of your RAM. For this information, you need to see the sticker at the top of the RAM. On which the type of RAM is shown or you can visit the website of the manufacturer of that laptop or motherboard. Nowadays, 4 types of RAM are mostly used.

Other factors to find Best RAM for your laptop or PC 

Speed (MHz): The speed of the laptop is also responsible for the smooth running of your system, so we have to pay special attention to the speed of the train as well. You can find out from the table below.

Name I/O Bus clock Data rate Transfer rate Module name
DDR2-400 200 MHz 400 MT/s 3200 MB/s PC2-3200
DDR2-533 266 MHz 533 MT/s 4264 MB/s PC2-4200

DDR2-800 400 MHz 800 MT/s 6400 MB/s PC2-6400
DDR2-1066 533 MHz 1066 MT/s 8528 MB/s PC2-8500
Name I/O Bus clock Data rate Transfer rate Module name
DDR3-800 400 MHz 800 MT/s 6400 MB/s PC3-6400
DDR3-1066 533 MHz 1066 MT/s 8500 MB/s PC3-8500
DDR3-1333 666 MHz 1333 MT/s 10600 MB/s PC3-10600
DDR3-1600 800 MHz 1600 MT/s 12800 MB/s PC3-12800
DDR3-1866 933 MHz 1866 MT/s 14900 MB/s PC3-14900
DDR3-2133 1066 MHz 2133 MT/s 17000 MB/s PC3-17000
Name I/O Bus clock Data rate Transfer rate Module name
DDR4-1600J/K/L 800 MHz 1600 MT/s 12800 MB/s PC4-1600
DDR4-1866L/M/N 933 MHz 1866 MT/s 14933 MB/s PC4-1866
DDR4-2133N/P/R 1066 MHz 2133 MT/s 17066 MB/s PC4-2133
DDR4-2400P/R/U 1200 MHz 2400 MT/s 19200 MB/s PC4-2400

Latency – With the help of time latency, we can increase the response rate of the laptop or PC MotherBoard, reducing the time between the process done in RAM and the instructions received from the CPU. We can increase its process. Typically, lower numbers mean better performance.
