Ivybridge 1333mhz or 1600mhz Tags: Memory Performance RAM Last response: November 6, 2012 6:18 PM in Memory Share 1mon2gol1 November 6, 2012 5:54:51 PM Will i see real world performance increase if i use 1600mhz over 1333mhz ram? Also what is the benefit of spending lots on ram that is the same capacity and speed. Are there other factors which affect the performance of the ram?

Benchmark tests indicate very minimal 2% increase. But if the fancy ram costs the same (or minimally more), there is no reason NOT to get it.
