Slower ram affect integrated GPU performance?

Hello,
I wouldnt have a dedicated GPU for a few month. I heard that AMD APU cores loves fast ram.
Does this apply to Intel? I currently have I3 4330k with its integrated graphic with 1600 cl11.
Would getting lower cl ram boost my graphic performance to a noticable extent?

  1. I doubt you'll see any kind of difference at all. It's gimped cause it's built in. I would suggest getting a actual video card or getting a different mobo if you don't have the expansion slots.
  2. No real gain, hold off and put the money into an even better GPU that you were planning ;)
  3. Why not google it. Tom's did a whole benchmark on it here. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/memory-bandwidth-scaling-trinity,3419.html

    Instead you ask and wait and get 2 answers that contradict the 20% gain the article talks about from 1600 to 2400 speed RAM with a Trinity APU.

    I know read that already. Notice how it is a AMD APU, not a Intel.
    Im asking if the same applies to intel since the GPU is much weaker but has a better architecture and ram controller.

    The speed of the ram isn't gonna make that big of a deal no matter if it's AMD or Intel. Get yourself a real video card. You would be surprised on what you can get for so little. And you can crossfire certain AMD APU's and AMD cards.

    If you're gaming then get yourself a actual videocard. The money you spend on new and faster ram could go towards a descent video card that can help your gaming out.

    Helps to read the question ;) which is about Intel and it's onboard video - not the Trinity APU (which is AMD)

    Any GPU suggestion? I would want something that can run BF4 at 1080p with medium resolution with a playable fps.

    How much money you got to spend. I don't understand the part about playing at 1080p with medium resolution? 1080p or rather 1920x1080 is the resolution for 1080p. Really it's all gonna depend on the money you have to spend as well as how big your power supply is to handle the card you're looking for and how much ram you're running. Ram would just allow the game to load a bit faster if you have more then 4 Gigs.
  9. I have 8gb at 1333 cl9, 750w hcg, and yeah, i would want to run at 1920x1080.
    I would like that cheapest card that would allow me to play the game.
  10. Budget?
  11. umm maybe 100-300$
  12. Think best would be a GTX 760 - take a look at the Asus CU 760

    Ummm, maybe doesn't really cut it. Give us a real a real number caust with that amount that's alot of picks.

    Be more realistic on the max amount you will spend on this gpu. Have a set price on the max you are willing to spend and have in your pocket and then use the guide in the link.
