Default Memory speed impact on Intel Core 2 Systems

Basically with my current setup using DDR2, I can plug the memory into the motherboard, then go ahead and overclock the CPU while keeping the memory near its rated speed and timings.

The memory speed and timings can be further refined, but payback for your efforts are limited to a percent or two in performance - something you'll never see in day-to-day work.

Our original article from August 2006 had the same findings

not really, if you look further into that benchmark, you'll notice that at resolutions you actually play the game at, the difference of a $200 DDR2 kit vs $600 DDR2 kit becomes 2-3FPS at best...

I completely missed that. Nice catch.

nothing much has changed, in the following order does game performance matter:

GPU > CPU > MEM > Motherboard

the last too make a very small percentage of the whole, depending on the game the CPU can also be a very small part. Major player remains GPU, I can see why Intel wants a piece of that high performance pie
