DDR3 - 1333mhz vs. 1600mhz - 6gb vs. 12gb Tags: Memory DDR3 Gaming Last response: September 23, 2009 5:13 PM in Memory Share ElectroGoofy September 22, 2009 8:10:29 PM Hello all Ok, I have heard that for gaming, there is no difference for 1333mhz vs 1600mhz or 6gb vs 12gb, but have heard that there is a difference for stuff like 3D rendering. How much of a difference is there really? Thanks! More about : ddr3 1333mhz 1600mhz 6gb 12gb ElectroGoofy September 23, 2009 12:04:08 AM Anybody....?

Ask ! Get the answer ElectroGoofy September 23, 2009 11:19:12 AM I am using Carrara 6.... I didn't know that some programs couldn't use all 12gb. Just posted a question on the site that has it Oh, and thanks for the article. Btw, did all of the programs they used there support 12gb? If so, thats amazing that they were identical in most cases. Thanks! EDIT: Just got a response..... turns out that the current version is only 32-bit, so I will have to wait for the next version (it will be available in 32-bit) to utilize more than 4gb Oh well. But anyway, how good is 12gb vs. 6gb with other 3D rendering programs that DO support 12gb? GhislainG a c 75 } Memory a b 4 Gaming September 23, 2009 5:13:48 PM As you could see, they gained 3 seconds on a 3 minutes job using 12 GB instead of 3 GB. If you do that for a living, then being 1.5% faster might be worth it to you. Programs don't care about the amount of available memory - they use what they need. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
