Hi all. I assume this is relevant not only for considerations related to the practical limit/benefit of increasing RAM in existing computers, but also regarding the specifications when buying new computers.
- At the following amounts of RAM; 8GB -> 16GB -> 24GB -> 32GB -> 48GB -> 64GB, how much does the requirements for the graphics card memory increase with each step, if we assume the normal/daily/"permanent" usage to be 70-80% of the available RAM? This obviously depends on how many different VM's one has open, and how much video memory each one needs, but can we make an assumption on some sort of average number for this, to see if it is possible to find some kind of rule-of-thumb figures? For example, if we assume a "normal"(?!?) Qubes-OS user whose sole reason for increasing memory is in fact to be able to run more Qubes simultaneously; how many more Qubes can he/she expect to be running per extra 8gb of RAM, and how much more will each such step "typically" require of the graphics card memory, if we assume a "linear" growth in the number of concurrently open Qubes? I am guessing that with the capacity to run (increasingly) many Qubes, the amount of applications running in each one will be lower, to the point where we most often choose to run "one-app-qubes". For the sake of this example we could also assume that this example user is a "lazy" person who will not bother configuring minimal templates, but only use the default shipped fedora-24(++) template for each one, just for the sake of simplicity and playing around with these numbers a bit.
