It was pretty bad. That will affect some non-iGPU applications, particularly some memory-sensitive stuff.

There are some games out there that will be affected on the CPU side by that sort of thing. Ryse: Son of Rome, for example.

I'll have to try and find it. I never noticed any difference on my own machine but I also am not 100% sure the 16GB kit I had at one point was actually dual rank. Any extra performance I can wring out of it would be amazing.
