Oblivion FPS, post yours - Page 3

post #21 of 34
To my understanding Dual Channel helps in all applications especially games, I just tryed taking mine off Dual Channel Mode and in single I lost 8fps inside and 10 fps outside on in oblivion. So in my config it makes a pretty apparent difference. Other configs might not as much but I have to say Dual Channel all the way for me.

Test was done using the same settings in my last post.

I updated my drivers and wow!!
What a difference!
Now I'm rocking out at maxed out settings HDR, 1024x768
Vsync off
Outside:20-80 FPS
Inside:40-120 FPS
Anyone who hasn't upgraded to Cat 6.3 really should.

Sorry man but that makes no sense. When I bench my system I use aqua 3 and when Im done I use the css benchmark. Ill let you guess what goes up when I gain points in aqua 3.

For example, if you have a slow cpu dual channel won't help. My friend has P4 2.0 and in dual chanel it makes a slight difference in benchmarks that test ram speed, like aquamark, but not in real games. Therefore, it doesn't always help. It does usually help.

Ok well in circumstances where your CPU is holding you back in preformance regardless of course it wont help. But if you fail to meet any of the requirements or are at the minimum than your overall preformance is caped by that device. I was saying in general, it does help, if you meet the requirements and arent running in dual channel than switching to dual channel. However most games these days require a minimum 2.0Ghz processor to even run. I bet if he took out an older game and tried to switch from single to dual he would notice the increase I am talking about. The fact that he is handicapped at the CPU though would eliminate him from making any difference with any change at all. It just seems like your picking a situation that isnt relivant to the argument. I would allways assume that the computer was at least mid range in comparison to the minimum specs in which case changing the preformance of any component should be able to increase preformance. With the logic you provided to state "it doesnt allways help" isnt false but its pointless to bring up nothing can really bring a system out of being seriously bottlenecked unless you add hardware.
