e.g. it's incredibly imporant for anyone wanting to use an iGPU, if only as secondary compute.

Or for anyone doing heavy use of RAMdisks or massive file sizes.
You are correct. However, since the OP isn't using it in that manner, I chose not to bring it up... but you are spot on. Since the iGPU uses system ram for texture storage, the faster it runs, the faster the iGPU runs.

I failed to see the RAMDISK mention, and you are correct there.


But again, in sticking with the context in the thread............................thumb.gif


Parroting......... rolleyes.gifboxing3.gif

But I mentioned RAMdisks tongue.gif

Here's the Intel tests.

I think I'll jump on the 2133 CS10 kit if I can get a good price biggrin.gif

My quick research (across various reviews) showed that very roughly 2400 is the max advantage after which point the advantages are minuscule for almost all current uses. On current common architectures. So I'd say someone could aim for a max of 2400, below that a little isn't a big deal, not going above it, not a big deal either.

That of course will change in a few years.

It also means DDR4 is of little use now.

Initially it'll be worse than 2400 DDR3, as memory latency has gone up.

Less voltage to start at least. thumb.gif

and @ OP - you did mention it...I said that I failed to see it. wink.gif
