If you're currently using the Samsung modules, that means your laptop uses DDR4. The DDR3 modules you've been gifted will neither work nor physically fit. Sell (or return) the Kingston DDR3 modules and get some extra DDR4 modules if you have RAM slots left unused in your laptop. If you only have two RAM slots, you'd want to get 2x16 GB modules, preferably at ...

Not recommending a specific laptop (at least not at this stage anyway) but a couple of points, nevertheless: Do not get one with a Broadcom wireless chipset - you won't be getting it to work with Linux without a lot of difficulty (involving NDIS wrappers, if even then). Avoid them like the plague and make sure you get one with an Intel wifi chipset. I used ...

The GPU is a Graphics Processing Unit. From here, you can check what the gpu is approximately doing. In web browsing the gpu can help decoding video's, but the CPU (Central Processing Unit) gives tasks to the gpu and if it doesn't, the gpu will be silent and just draw pixels.

Aside from GPU tasks, it can also handle anything OpenCL also known as CUDA cores or stream processors. Tasks like Bitcoin mining. Web pages has tons of graphics so it does accelerate the browser.

It is highly unlikely your RAM is going to make a significant difference in the performance for video editing or encoding. Your CPU, then GPU is most likely to be the bottleneck in this scenario (in that order). While you don't list the CAS latency for the RAM, It is essentially certain that loading the DDR3 RAM is going to be slower for overall performance ...

Yes, in short it is possible and I do recommend upgrading the RAM of your laptop since it is one of the cheapest yet effective ways to increase its performance. Details provided above indicate to me that there is a slot empty to insert another RAM stick to perfectly increase it to the maximum 32 GB limit of the motherboard. It will be beneficial especially ...

Considering it's being run on a Ryzen processor I would reccomend using the 3600mhz kit. Amd has a thing called Infinity Fabric. You usually want to have this running at a 1:1 ratio of the Ram Base clock. But it's also responsible for some communication within the cpu itself. By using higher base clock RAM, the Infinity Fabric speeds increase. Causing an ...

There are two possible things that may happen: Either the boot will fail or you will use only capacity given by the hardware. Sometimes real capacity they give you as supported is not the real capacity the hardware can handle but it is highly experimental on your end, I would recommend if possible check on the store before buying if they allow you that, some ...
