This question already has an answer here:
I've seen lots of controversy on this topic so I want to ask it for myself.
I have 4 RAM slots on my Q43 (antelope) motherboard. Apparently It can take a max of 8GB of RAM. I already have 2 4GB sticks of RAM and loads of 2GB sticks. If they both run at the same speed Which would be faster for me? I've heard people say that 4x2 is faster because there are more lanes, and people say that 2x4 is faster because it doesn't have to switch between them? Who's right? And why?
