Does Memory Speed Affect Gaming Performance; An Intel Question

» Discuss this article (1)

Memory V.S Gaming Testing:

On to the final benchmarks. When I started this, I honestly did not think it would take so long to run just three games, or 36 runs in total. Fortunately, all of my Steam cards dropped while running these benchmarks. If the current trends continue, DDR3 should show a clear gap between the slowest memory and the fastest. However, 1440p puts a twist on everything. While the GTX 1070 is a fully capable card, it seems these three games I chose all become GPU bound at 1440p under the conditions I set up. I think a different video card or a change in some settings would yield better results under 1440p. I'll have to revise my attack plan if I revisit this topic.

Metro 2033: Redux:

Not much to say here besides repeating myself. It looks like 1440p is GPU bound across the board here so it is pointless to give a play by play analysis.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III:

Even though it's very minor and within the 3% margin of error, an indication of fastest memory provides higher frame rate in this game. Judging solely on the 1080p results, I speculate a more powerful video card would give a wider range here.


Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands:

This game appears to have been a poor choice for a benchmark as it is clearly GPU bound at this resolution. Time to move onto the conclusion based on my limited results.
