Triple vs Quad Channel Memory

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
If one where to have a 3x4gb X58 DDR3 1600 MHz 8-8-8-24 or a 4x4gb X79 DDR3 1600 MHz 8-8-8-24 what difference will there be in performance. Is there really a need to go for a higher MHz setup on the X79? Thanks.

Real world performance would be MAYBE a couple % if any.

What if the memory is clocked at 2400MHz?

Proof?

Think the only proof required is that going from dual channel to triple channel only brings about a few %, hardly worth getting excited over. IMO multi channel memory stuff is nothing more than a gimmick. The end result is barely tangible except on some benchmarks.
