I am running a legacy Windows XP 32-bit PC (not for internet use of course). It has 2x4GB RAM which operates in dual-channel mode.
Obviously Windows XP can only use 4GB RAM. One could argue the second stick of RAM is pointless, but without it you only get single-channel performance.
Question: Even though Windows XP only uses 4GB RAM max, will I still enjoy dual-channel performance by having both sticks installed?
I'd benchmark this myself but I'd rather not tinker with the PC as it doesn't belong to me.
