Absolutely, you're missing out a lot... NOT! ( http://www.benchzone.com/page.php?al=gaming_performance_part1&pg=12 )

[ off-topic: apart from the fact that memory has nothing to do with your system's gaming performance, I highly doubt that your 980X can't take a RAM kit at DDR3-2000 at least ]

I don't get it, they are all withing margin of error... so basically everything above 1600 is wasted money?

Everyone is getting all hyped up about a 1-2 frame loss in min FPS when comparing 1600mhz to 2133mhz..

It's a few frames, not exactly earth shattering results..

Yeap, gaming and memory = speed doesn't really matter once you pass the "max processing capability" of your CPU/GPU config.
Where it really helps is if you're using the iGPU/APU ( built-in CPU "VGA" ).

Since I've done something similar with the new Metro ( Last Light ) for another guy on another forum, I thought it wouldn't hurt to post them here too.

( I believe I don't need to point out that in most benchmarks a 1fps-1.5fps variance is within the standard run to run deviation )


CPU: Core i7-3770K @ 4.4GHz
RAM: DDR3-800, DDR3-1333, DDR3-2000

Metro Last Light - 1920x1080 max details SSAA on Tessallation Very High

First AIDA64 Cache & Mem bandwidth test and then Metro Last Light built-in benchmark results

DDR3-800 11-12-11-31 Loose sub-timings





DDR3-1333 10-10-10-24 Moderate sub-timings





DDR3-2000 7-7-7-21 Tight sub-timings

one game is just that and I think someone already spend good amount of time on testing
http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/memory/display/ivy-bridge-ddr3_5.html

EDIT; who runs 800~ 2000 ram on Ivy ...?doh.gif (4Gb vs 32-lol)
on another note I would love to see some none synthetic testing,preferably multiplier full server and just overall experience wink.gif
