I would assume its minimal increase in performance and doubt you would be able to see any difference in benchmarking or gameplay for that fact. It may even relate to specific graphic cards only. purple stank a b V Motherboard May 3, 2013 7:23:46 AM Yeah I wanted to be more clear on the performance gain before I go ahead with it.Otherwise I'd just leave it alone.
