Does it make a difference with chess engine performance? Wondering if I should upgrade my laptop with another 16GB stick.

Thanks!

if you have one 16gb stick in it now, two will give windows more memory to work with and make the machine much less dependant on primary storage

Dual Channel does make a small difference.  It was a while ago but I saw a ~10% in testing (if I remember correctly)...but that was a older HW.   I only own a laptop only now so can't do quick test to verify.  My bet is just adding additional memory will potentially be a bigger performance improvement in general (and larger hash tables, better for large memory pages if enabled) and the bonus is you get the dual channel boost with two sticks.
