Benchmark Results: 3D Performance
The graphics performance in 3DMark Vantage improves with low latency memory and with faster clock speeds. The benefits are small, though.
The CPU score doesn’t provide any helpful information.
Far Cry 2 is our first real-world 3D game in this review and proves that you can indeed generate higher gaming performance when using faster RAM. The DDR3-1600 settings were best.
GTA IV didn’t return straightforward results.
Left 4 Dead is another example that shows how fast RAM speeds and timings do have benefits. Clearly, you should go for gold with this game title.
