[News] GNU/Linux Shows Windows is a Resource Pig

Hash: SHA1

Ubuntu vs. Windows memory, and a backup solution

,----[ Quote ]
| 349MB of RAM. In other words, a whole gigabyte less than Vista. The 
| discussion veered off even farther when it got to Xubuntu, which can run in  
| 127MB of RAM. 



Whoever is at Fault, Fix It: Where is My RAM?

,----[ Quote ]
| If you take a closer look, Windows Vista only sees 2GB of RAM. For games like 
| Bioshock requesting 2GB of RAM and Crysis 1.5GB, those of us using a Mac Pro 
| are left almost in the dark. Granted Gears of War runs pretty well cranked up 
| but the computer is at its limits with the failure to recognize the other 1GB 
| along with Vista hogging resources in the background.    



Running Microsoft Windows Vista 64bit and 4GB Ram

,----[ Quote ]
| I then ordered 4GB (2 sticks of DDR667) of ram from Newegg.com. Everything 
| arrived fine, I installed the ram which is very simple. With a D630 it 
| involves talking off the keyboard to insert the first stick and then to 
| install the second stick you just have to remove the back panel. I stuck in a 
| Microsoft Windows Vista 64bit version and started the install. Everything 
| went fine, Vista installed rather fast so I was really happy at this point. 
| It rebooted after successful install, was loading into windows and then blue 
| screened. I was devastated lol.       


Vista PCs: Suffering from Memory Loss?

| A reader wants to know why his new computer--which is supposed to have
| 4GB of memory--keeps telling him it really has only 3GB


Testing Vista's different memory configurations 

,----[ Quote ]
| You simply cannot play games on Vista with 512MB o memory, at least not the 
| games wen tested. You will sometimes get playable scores but even then the 
| experience and the load time will be ridiculous.
| Anything more than 512MB will help you a lot, with 2x1GB being the best 
| price performance buy.
| 4x1GB is the best choice for best raw performance. It is hard to prove it
| ^^^^^ 
| in every test, but if you have 2x1GB and you load as much in memory, the 
|                                ^^^^^
| system will become endessly slow. 
|                             ^^^^     


Vista Runs Smooth Only on 2G Memory

| However, Dell CEO Kevin Rollins suggested otherwise on Thursday, 26 Oct at 
| a speech at Shanghai's Jiaotong University. "I think they tell you maybe 1 
| gig of memory is OK. No, two gigs of memory would be great."
| This echoes with my own experience with Vista RC2. With only 1G of
| RAM, there are many disk activities indicating heavy disk swap, a
| symptom of lack of memory in the system.


Vista System Memory Concerns

| Vista: Facing a Slow Adoption. In the beginning, early adopters and
| gamers who are looking to ready themselves for the DirectX 10 upgrade
| will be best suited for those ready to make an investment in the
| unknown.
| Considering how many software and game titles will likely need to
| be run in "compatibility mode" until patches are released across
| the board, I would suggest really looking at what Vista's advantages
| are before taking the plunge.
| No matter how much we may wish to see the path Vista is about to
| embark on, the fact remains that because of its hardware requirements,
| Vista adoption may turn out to be rather slow.


Microsoft Windows Is A Greedy Memory Hog, The Cure Is To Feed It RAM

| For Windows 2000, XP, 512MB is the minimum and 1GB or more is recommended.
| For Windows 98 any flavor, 256MB is the minimum and 1GB is recommended. If 
| you are an avid PC gamer or video editor, 1GB is the minimum 
| recommendation. Other operating systems such as Linux or Mac are similar. 
| Simply put: more is better.
