Too early to tell, I'm afraid... I'd wait to see if this core - or some other cores currently being developed - may require/offer better performance with double SDRAMs in their final stable version
In general stable cores usually work with a single SDRAM card, so far at least, yet double SDRAM sticks (any size) give better latency.. It all depends on how the core is engineered and optimized, though.
For the record my MiSTer has two SDRAM sticks, but the second one for now sees basically no use other than the Saturn core or an experimental PSX core..

Just reading about the Saturn Dual SDRAM use. Is this likely to be the case when the core is closer to final or is the aim to get it fully functional with a Single SDRAM? This is one of the cores I’m looking forward to and wondered if I should upgrade with another SDRAM module in preparation.
Appreciate this may not be currently possible to answer.
