Is it important to have all the ram sticks with an equal memory size?
I was told that upgrading our server from 64GB (8 x 8GB) to 72GB (7x 8GB + 1x 16GB) will not yield any performance gain, since the ram sticks will not all be the same size.
Is this true? If yes, can you please explain why?
Server specs: Dell Power Edge Intel Nehalem Dual Socket Quad Core 2.26 GHz. running on Debian. (Is there is a difference running a different OS such as windows?)
