I would like to know if having PSRAM on my ESP32 module will help with this library.
As you can see in the documentation the ESP32-WROVER-B has 8MB of PSRAM.
From what I’ve read, the ESP32 usually has around 500kb of RAM. So, after the WiFi, TCP/IP, Cache and Freertos take their fair share of the RAM, my code + SmartMatrix library will use the rest, correct ?
But what about the 8 freaking MB of PSRAM ? What are those for ? Can I use them for something ? Not me, me, because I lack the coding skills to actually do something like that, but somebody who actually knows what he’s doing.
Should it be possible for the SmartMatrix library to use 8 MB of RAM instead of the ~200kb leftover ?
