Is there a difference in performance? Dual channel vrs Quad channel?

Posted on Thursday, December 15, 2016

In my ongoing research the newer mother boards for Broadwell are DDR4 (quad channel) while Skylake is dual channel. Is there any advantage of one over the other?


I understand they have to be purchased or installed in pairs...Quad channel ram of 16gig would be 4 sticks of 4 gig while dual channel would be 2 sticks of 8. 


I also have my eye on these coming up late next year...


6 core Skylakes with clocks at 4-4.3ghz sound rather promising...
