Performance diff b/w single- and dual-channel mem

Recommended Posts

Hello, all. I have a MacBook Pro 2.0 GHz Core Duo w/ 1 GB RAM (2x512). I know that, in this configuration, the memory is running in dual-channel mode. However, I'm considering purchasing a single 1GB module to replace one of my 512's, which will knock it down to single-channel mode. Is there going to be any noticeable, real-world difference w/ it in single-channel mode? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Regards,

Curt

The perfirmance hit you'll take will be greatly outweighed by the gain you'll get from the extra memory.
