3GB, 6GB or 12GB Investigated

PCMark Vantage



PCMark Vantage is the latest benchmarking suite from Futuremark. Differing significantly from their 3DMark suites, PCMark performs a series of benchmarks designed to recreate and benchmark scenarios of a PC being used for everyday tasks. Vantage has a Vista only requirement as it actually relies on several different components from the OS in order to run correctly.












 
Results Analysis

PCMark Vantage seemed to do what I could not; show a difference between the 3 DDR3 kits. In  every benchmark, Vantage showed a performance advantage was to be had with the 12GB kit. While the differences again were not eye popping or huge by any stretch of the imagination, there does appear to be a distinct leap in performance the more capacity there is.

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
