great video!

Danilo Carvalho says:

That’s the kind of question a regular gamer thinks the answer is obvious, but when we realize how much difference it actually is, we get very surprised! Thanks for the video!


Wow, it’s only with time that we see how actually well-optimised Lara is, still amazing and plays well on what is today a sub-par system.

Leonardo Cuevas says:

Just got 32 GB ram 🙂

Ryan Torres says:

I can ahtest to fast ram helping. I had a 16 GB kit at 1600 MHz (ddr3) and my fame rate would not be consistent the upgraded to a different 16GB clocked at 1866 MHz and noticed much less stutter

John K says:

SupremeMaster says:

I thought this was a comparison of 2 same rams 1 with lower freq and lower cl and other one opposite. Can you do a test like this too ?

The Blank Age says:

thanks for the info it really helped cus i had that fps problem with gta v and nw i know it was the low ram that was the problem and i wonder if u could do like a vid about the power supplies and which is better for a gaming system

Austin Storms says:

I uncapped my frame rate in overwatch to benchmark and I maxed out my 16GBs of DDR4 RAM! I wasnt peaked for the whole time, but spiked to it and was around 80 to 90% the whole time. Might get 2 more sticks of 4GBs to upgrade to 24GBs total

issaciams says:

I’m more impressed about how well the i3 holds up compared to i5/i7 in games. Very good performance with an i3!

Codex says:

Having seen this video before, I decided to buy another 16gb RAM kit to add to the 16 that I already have. I came back to this video because I remembered it being the reason for me wanting more RAM in the first place; Thanks for the informative and insightful video. SUB! >_<

Uria 64800 says:

I just built my first pc, with only 8gb of ram. And every game i launched run smoothly at 1080p in ultra settings and use around 7gb. I think 16gb would be more safe, especialy for big open world games …
