RAM really only makes a difference in gaming if you're on integrated graphics (which share the RAM along with other system resources). If you have a dedicated GFX card, your game will be using the dedicated RAM on those.

A lot of very low end tablets that run on 1 or 2 GB of RAM will be the ones benefiting from this.

It might push some benchmark scores up higher for the enthusiasts that like number competitions but realistically this was not made with gaming in mind.

I think you misunderstood me. I wasn't really talking about gaming RAM (I understand the uses of GDDR5, DDR3/4, and the differences thereof). I just used the term gamers, since that is what we are here, and many of us gamers have a large excess of system RAM.

The point I was trying to get across...
In the video he talked about a new feature of memory compression which Windows would use "as needed" and would speed up your OS.

Many PC users (especially all of us who build) have more system RAM than they need, or in actuality, more than the OS can make use of. So if we are sitting on 8,16, 32 GB or more of system RAM, I am was just wondering if the new feature would pretty much have zero impact(my aforementioned moot point). Kind of like in the days of old when Ready Boost was going to dramatically boost your system performance.

[EDIT]
Think you edited while I was typing.
So the new feature will pretty much be helpful for the low-end market of PC/Tablet's.

The Insider Preview marches on with new stuff. If you're not feeling adventurous, you can experience it in LP format

I just read an interesting article about the persistence of the Insider Program. I am sure you already know, but for those who may be interested, click away.

It strongly depends on what you use your PC for. I have a workstation that's equipped with 32 GB of RAM and I need all of it and then some for the work I do. My primary personal PC has 24 GB and it comfortably hovers at just half o it.

There is a new noteworthy update in the Insider Preview builds that should make a lot of you happy.

As of Build 10565, Windows 10 can be activated with Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 product keys (same restrictions based on license type apply such as OEM keys cannot be transferred to different motherboards). This is a needed change for those of you wanting to do clean installs.

Should be noted that Microsoft probably has a catalog of which keys have performed the initial upgrade and references that in order to enforce the 1 year time limit of upgrading to Windows 10 for free.

On a side note, if you have not seen Microsoft's keynote on new devices, I highly recommend you do so. They have finally revealed the future of Windows RT through Windows Continuum on newly revealed Windows 10 Phones which looks really neat and much better thought out than the original Surface RTs. There's a lot of extremely cool gadgets (including the first Microsoft made laptop).

That new Laptop is very slick looking. I would be very interested to try one out.
