When evaluating these responses, please remember that Mathworks products aren't the only software running on the machine. Further, I would like to use the RAM on my machine to do data analysis of increasingly large problems. I don't want to use the RAM on my machine to support increasingly bloated software.
I have installed 16 GB of RAM in dual Channel 3200 MHZ, my sistem is optimized for performance, and my CPU has 8 cores and 16 threads. Nonetheless, when I'm customizing some plots, Matlab get stucked, so I check the resources usage and them I see It's consumption never surpasses 9% or CPU and 3,5% GB of RAM. Why does It happen?
I am using 64 G and previous 128 G. I analyze microscopic images. Sometime the stitched image can reach 10k*20k in pixel numbers, and the cache required for analysis can peak over 100 G. It is also likely my coding is bad, therefore resource intense
They could've created a category 48-96 GB which has almost the same range, but start and end point are multiples of 8. Since RAM is often sold at 8 GB per module, it doesn't really make sense to use 47 and 90.
The range values were roughly selected to be 1.5 times certain powers of two, since RAM is often sold in such increments (e.g., 8, 16, 32, 64 GB), and to be positioned between typical values. While RAM capacity is not always a power of two, and the range values may not be perfect, they seem to have captured the distribution fairly well. Note that polls cannot have more than six responses, or I would have included more options.
