Effects of low RAM frequency on games
Nov 18, 2012, 8:21 PM
When I say low RAM frequency I'm refering to VERY low RAM frequencies.
I mean, what are the effects of having a 2gb Memory with, say, 333MHz compared to one with 800Mhz or even 1066 ?

It will slow thing down but does not have the same affect as CPU and GPU can have on gaming.

Game dependent but I would say max about 5%, do not forget that slower ram usually has faster timings.
