    Would've loved to see more games that like RAM. Source engine games generally tend to fare better with better RAM, so I think it would've been nice and a big visual representation perhaps using some source games.

    The only Source game I play is Day of Defeat and it barely ever uses 4GiB out of my 8GiB of 1333MHz DDR3. I doubt more RAM would help it tbh and 'faster' RAM I reckon wouldn't even show up on benchmarks....

    Would a jump from 1333 DDR3 to even double or more that DDR4 really make any difference to such old engines as Source? ....maybe on APUs?

    It's possible I was mixing up stuff in my head where TomsHardware did a VRAM benchmark including L4D, but I was positive I saw more on it before, and with different images than what was shown there too.

    So the only thing I could find was: http://media.bestofmicro.com/E/J/213...eft_4_dead.png but that's involving Core i7 first generation memory scaling and not exactly what I was looking for. Oh well, I'm confusing myself more nonetheless now :s

    Edit: Found this too concerning LGA1156 benchmarking, but still isn't what I was looking for: http://media.bestofmicro.com/9/5/231...eft_4_dead.png

    64-bit is a consideration here. Remember, 32-bit games can't use more than a couple of gig of RAM

    Oh good point, are any Source titles 64-bit? It really is an ancient engine by PC standards

    Robb: Those figures do show some improvement with reduced latency, actually more than I would've expected. However as RAM speed increases, so does CL timing and these DDR4 chips would perform worse in that regard (extrapolating those figures)...
