Our single-threaded Acrobat workload sees some benefit from faster memory. The Acrobat test also gains from the Core i7-4770K's higher thermal ceiling and larger shared L3 cache.
We typically disregard performance differences of one second or less, since rounding can exacerbate tiny deltas. We don’t see a consistent trend in memory performance in After Effects; we only know that maximum memory capacity plays a big role in how long this test takes to finish.
Data rate has no discernible effect on Photoshop’s CPU-heavy filters, but faster memory does help its OpenCL-accelerated performance. The LGA 1150-based Core i7-4770K is particularly limited by memory throughput.
Our Adobe Premiere Pro workload doesn't correlate clearly to memory performance. Instead, we end up with a five-second margin of error.
