  1. WSL2 only has access to half 16GB of RAM from Windows 32GB?


    In WSL Ubuntu prompt:


    $ free -m

    total used free shared buff/cache available

    Mem: 15984 2511 13364 0 107 13257

    Swap: 4069 1984 2111


    ----


    In Windows Powershell:


    > systeminfo find "Total Physical Memory"

    Total Physical Memory: 32,716 MB


    -----


    I don't have any .wslconfig file created in my home directory or anywhere, so there shouldn't be a limit.


    Can anyone think of something that I'm missing?

    :)

    16gb ram vs 32gb ram Upgrade

    8 GB's is what I would tell everybody to have as a minimum. For gamer or power user, I suggest going to 16GB of RAM. 32GB or more RAM I usually only see for people who are running lots of VM's, databases, or high end rendering type applications.
     
  3. 16gb ram vs 32gb ram Upgrade

    Hey. I had no idea that even if you use windows ten with no problems on... it still uses 2.8 - 3.1GB memory. I thought it would have used even less than that like a gb only when doing aboslutely nothing? So that means what i have... is normal then when not using any programs and just leaving it like that? Im shocked by that.


    Okay but if i ever want to upgrade to 32GB ram, i could always sell the 16GB for a decent amount? Example it cost around 65 dollars for the 16GB ram. And a bit less than double for the 32GB. I probably could get half the amount for the 16GB ram that i sell later on? But then it probably be worth less since more machines has 16GB as the standard right?

    16gb ram vs 32gb ram Upgrade

    I have 8gb and will be upgrading to 16gb ram. But then i saw how there is 32gb ram ... price is double that of 16gb ram.


    Now is there any point of upgrading a laptop to 32gb ram? Or its a complete waste? I mean i know i could always upgrade to 32gb ram in the future but if i do that, i could always get something for my 16gb ram selling it on ebay right?


    Someone mentioned since i have an old machine dell xps 15 9550 and 8gb ram... 16gb should be fine.
