Fps drop / Stuttering
« on: July 07, 2017, 07:24 »
Hi, I recently bought GTA V on steam and tried it on my laptop but for some reason I get fps drop / game stutters while driving, I get over 60 fps all together when the game isn't getting fps drops.
My specs are:
Cpu: Core i5-7200U (2+2) @ 3.1 GHz
Gpu: Nvidia 940MX 2GB GDDR5
Ram: 4 GB DDR4

if they have the same "mhz" they will work in pair, that's the only requirement to work in dual channel, and I think modern mobos accepts different rams size to work in dual channel

Yes, you need more RAM. Check if there's a free slot in your laptop. Then buy RAM that matches the speed and voltage of what you already have. 



My PC Specs:
-AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
-AMD Radeon VII
-ASUS Prime X470-Pro Motherboard
-CORSAIR Vengeance RGB PRO 32GB RAM
-ADATA SX8200 NVME SSD 960GB
-Seagate IronWolf Pro 8TB HDD
-Western Digital Blue 2TB HDD
-ADATA Ultimate SU800 2TB SDD x2
-ADATA Ultimate SU800 SSD 1TB x2
-Corsair HX750 Professional PSU
-NZXT H440 white/black case

Luckily my laptop has an extra slot, I'll go ahead and buy an extra 4GB stick and see how it work out.
Is this good? http://www.amazon.in/Corsair-Memory-Module-2133MHz-Unbuffered/dp/B0143UM5YQ?tag=googinhydr18418-21&tag=googinkenshoo-21&ascsubtag=49e76d8b-6c6f-4f6b-9e32-f00c55be9e66

I read about it some more and talked to Shane, turns out I need to match the speed and CL otherwise it'll run on speed of the slower one or on the latency of the slower one.

I have DDR4 @ 2400 MHz with CL = 17 SODIMM  at 1.2V

This seems to be perfect choice for me: http://www.amazon.in/Kingston-Technology-ValueRAM-2400Mhz-KVR24S17S8/dp/B01LW6HBSM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1499486761&sr=8-2&keywords=ddr4-2400+sodimm

4GB costs 4k INR while 8GB costs 5.2K INR (so much for prices :like:) so I'd go with 8GB one, also incase my old ram doesn't work with the new one I could just plug in the 8GB one and sell the old one.

mate you can do dual channel with 8gb and 4gb but they have to be the same clock, new mobos accepts it...
