Revisiting maximum memory
Subject: Memory | July 11, 2008 - 02:41 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
With ever rising resolutions and multiple core CPUs, systems are able to utilize more and more memory effectively. bit-tech decided to see if the sweet spot for RAM has moved, testing with 2, 4 and 8GBs of system RAM. Head over and see what they found out when gaming, task switching and being productive.
"However task switching out of games, load times of save games, and even in-game itself - 4GB or more of memory makes the
experience faster and smoother. We've got upcoming triple-A titles like FarCry 2, Stalker: Clear Sky or Crysis: Warhead, which
will be at least no less intensive than what is currently available, so it's absolutely worth doubling up over 2GB if you're a
keen member of the PC gaming master race. For a few less intensive titles like Call of Duty 4, it doesn't make a blind bit of
difference between 2GB and 4GB of memory. Consider what you play before you dive into your next purchase. "
