So.. you have NEVER heard of high resolution gaming? I think you should have informed yourself a little before saying a game can't benefit from more than 2GB of RAM. Not everyone games at 1080p and under. For my part I don't play games that are classically "demanding" I play strategy games that have many disk reads so My extra RAM an installing game on RAMdisk isnt't worth ? I save many minutes every day cause of it. You get the point, in many cases for many reasons depending on the aplpication a gaming computer can take advantage of up to 16GB, after that (in most cases) you are using high density sticks that are inherently slower by nature.
Yes I have as a matter of fact I play on a 1440p 120hz monitor tongue.gif there's a difference between ram and GPU vram I'm referring to ram not vram high resolution gaming should have negligible impact on your ram. Also I'm not arguing that a computer can use 16gbs of ram where did I say that what I was arguing with was that raghar said there was a game that needed a MINIMUM of 12gbs of ram to justify the 64gb being used in this large pixel collider computer. It's great you play strategy games but I can tell you right now none of those games will require a MINIMUM of 16gbs of ram thats the point I was refuting...

64GB will clock much lower than 16GB due to being much harder on the memory controller, and are also typically slower sticks to begin with.

So in essence, you are paying more money to be slower. 3/4's of the RAM would literally be sitting there empty at all times, just so you could say "I have 64 GB of RAM".

That is all for a gaming machine. Now if you are doing super number crunching and 4K video editing. RAMDisk etc, ok you may need more RAM.
I wonder, does RAM overclocking yelds tangible benefits? Is 3000mhz better than 1866 for example?Wouldn't slow timings actually make it worse? I know it wouldn't affect FPS, but it would have more bandwidth to load levels faster.

The difference is negligible. Apparently BF4 utilizes faster ram but... those are statistics from a manufacturer that makes fast ram. So I don't see it being credible.

And until the game actually works we cant really test it. tongue.gif

I love when they put 64 GB of RAM in a gaming machine. For $1000 extra you get slower performance! applaud.gif

Have you seen what they are powering their PC with, a single Corsair 1200i PSU, I hope they are not going to be doing any big overclocks lol.
