Adding RAM would it speed up the computations done by Matlab?

34 views (last 30 days)
I would like to know if adding RAM would affect the speed at which the computations are performed by Matlab. worth noting that I had 8 GB and I upgraded it to 16 GB, would it make any difference or the difference would be notable only for large matrices.
More specifically, I would like to know if I use tic toc functions with this configuration (16GB of RAM) should I expect a large difference with respect to the old RAm (8 GB).
Thank you very much for any hint.
Best regards!

Increasing your RAM will only really be beneficial for operations on large matrices. If you are struggling with the speed of a script that doesn't have any large matrices then your issue is more likely to be your processor.

125509*40 is about 80 megabytes. If you had 8 gigabytes you could have 100 of those. You probably do not need to have more memory for that.
