3GB, 6GB or 12GB Investigated

3D Benchmarks

 
 
Cinebench 10 is a benchmarking tool based on the powerful 3D software Cinema 4D. The suite uses complex renders to gauge the performance of the entire PC system in both single-core and multi-core modes. Testing was performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being omitted and an average created from the remaining 3 results.
 





 
 
3DMark is a popular synthetic gaming benchmark used by many gamers and overclockers to gauge the performance of their PC's. All 3DMark runs were performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results. Also included are the CrossfireX results to give an indication of how 8x PCIe lanes perform.
 





 
Results Analysis

Throughout the testing of the 3D benchmarks the 12GB kit came out on top but the differences were so small as to be insignificant. Every little helps so Tesco insist on telling us but I'm afraid that the differences are simply not worthwhile discussing...so I'll shut up right there.
 
If there's not a lot between the kits in the synthetic 3D benchmarks, I do wonder how actual gaming is affected, if at all...

Lol at the photos with all the ram. And 200 quid for 12GB, I paid that for 6GB 1333MHz. Prices are really dropping now.

Nice and unique review, really sheds some light on questions which are asked a lot and answered rarely.Quote

That was a really good review - I really enjoyed reading that.

I want to have enough RAM to take photos like that though. Quote
