Will ram speed improve gaming preformance?

 Share

So i curretnly have hyperX ddr4 ram in dual channal @ 2133 mhz. I am just wondering, if i put 3200 mhz ram inside will it increase FPS in games.

 

My system: 

i5 8600k 

gtx 1070 gaming x

16 gb hyperX ddr4 ram 2133 mhz dual channal

MSI Pro gaming plus z370

I may be wrong.

might depend per game and you might have to look up some benchmarks on this but i've seen a 10/15fps boost in some games going from 2400 to 3200. so yes

considering intel recommends 2666 mhz ram for 8th gen platform id say it would, you can see it at the i5's product page https://ark.intel.com/products/126685/Intel-Core-i5-8600K-Processor-9M-Cache-up-to-4-30-GHz-

 

it won't be as much as you think but you should notice a difference in minimums and maximum fps

 

 

here's a vid with your exact cpu

Yes, it'll affect it slightly. IIRC about 5 - 10 fps depending on the title.

Is it worth the upgrade? Well. Only you can answer that.

That used to be the case, however it's no longer true. It does affect performance.

This was a pretty comprehensive test done by a Dutch website fairly recently; should be easy to at least read the graphs and google translate goes a long way. Keep in mind that higher clockspeeds (mhz) often tends to go hand in hand with higher latencies - which is the main reason for the diminishing returns. That being said it does matter at least a little bit, but you have to watch out what you're buying. Just getting more mhz doesn't necessarily mean better performance.

Most games no, there's no performance impact. But in some select cases like Fallout 4 or Overwatch it can improve perfomance though. Well its not just RAM speed but timings that can play an important factor to. I can't say what the definitive factor for this increase is though, but i saw in those two games improvements brought due to ram speeds & timings from pc's running AMD FX chips, Intel Haswell CPU's and of course my current Skylake.
