Does Memory Performance Bottleneck Your Games?

Results: Battlefield 3 And Skyrim

The performance variations in Battlefield 3 are too small to attribute to configuration differences. So far, it looks like cheap DDR3-1600 is a bargain.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim benefits from faster or quicker RAM, but those benefits decrease as resolution is increased and graphics load goes up.
