GRW game in 7680x1440, high preset on Ryzen1700 2x8GB [email protected]

I had same or better 50+ FPS with Hynix M-die(the slowest)@3000-14 but with older Windows10 versions.
Will update with Hynix C-die or DJR-die 2x16GB when I get it installed and see what the chip lottery brings.
RAM has some effect in 1080p games. At 1440p and 4K the effect or RAM diminishes significantly.
RAM speed is only critical in RAM-heavy applications such as computational fluid dynamics with tons of data. These engineering tools work better on Xeons or Threadrippers anyway with multi-channel memory interfaces.
For games, money is best spent on a monitor, then GPU, then CPU, then RAM.
