Do RAM speeds actually matter

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Me having an OEM PC with RAM speed locked at 1333mhz, does it make noticeable or significant differences when using a higher speed? I can't upgrade my RAM or overclock because of it being an OEM so I just wanted to know if im missing out on anything because I've seen many videos showing a 20-30 fps increase with 2400mhz and other videos showing 0 increase in performance so I'm not sure .

 

My processor is a non k i7 2600 and my gpu is an RX 570 4gb

Memory bandwidth matters in gaming, higher frequency equals more bandwidth. Dual channel, of course, also increases bandwidth, so if you are only using one dimm a second one will improve performance.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, Seasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explainedˢsͥˡ ͮuͤ ͬˢgͭ ͦᶰoͤ

Dual-channel matters more than speed IMO

at ddr3 , which is your case, typically no diff fro 1333 to 1800mhz

the video you see may be for 1st gen ryzen ddr4 paing with a very high end gpu

I forgot to mention, I have 4x4 mixed ddr3, 2 of them are Samsung memory at 1333 and the other 2 I got from a friend which are 1600mhz, but I know it will run at 1333 because it's the max my mobo supports

Ryzen 5 3600 and DDR4 3200 tend to go "VROOM, VROOM" in PC games at least in my experience.


AMD Ryzen 5 3600 -- ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming 4 -- G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB DDR4 3200 -- Gigabyte GTX 1070 -- NZXT S340 -- Windows 10 64-Bit
