Windows 10: More Memory mean faster Gaming?
More Memory mean faster Gaming?
I was wondering if an upgrade from 8gigs of memory to 16gigs of memory would effect my FPS in gaming?
This is the memory in thinking about buying:
Corsair Vengeance Performance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3L 1600MHz PC3 12800 Laptop Memory Kit CMSX16GX3M2B1600C9 at Amazon.com
Right now I have 8Gig 1600MHz 11-11-11-28 latency

Nope will have no affect, unless you are hitting a memory wall. But I doubt tge memory you have now is your bottleneck.
Your graphics card is the bottleneck, and the situation is made much worse with the fact that it's a laptop, looks like you'll have to bite the bullet and get a gaming PC if you want higher FPS in games.
You guys are great help.. Guess I wont waste my money then. Thanks!
The GPU is the backbone of your PC. Older GPU's will have trouble playing newer games. I think 8GB's of RAM is plenty unless if you're a heavy gamer, but for now that should be enough RAM.
Withon reasonable limits adding more memory will improve performance. But there will always be a point of diminishing returns beyond which adding more will do little for performance. Except for very demanding applications more than 8 GB RAM would be beyond that limit. Game FPS is determined primarily by the GPU.
This depends on the game too. Some games are more CPU intensive. Also, I've noticed some video cards have RAM requirements listed. The video card I am upgrading to lists 8 GB of RAM as minimum.
There is a difference in System ram and Vram (video card's ram), if I understood your statement correctly.
Also, ram that is not used will not improve anything. If your game will not use the ram, there's no benefit to adding it.
slight OT, im having memory issues (crashes) in Fallout4 and COD: AW - both crashing / lagging / pagefiling like maniacs after a few hours of gaming
im running with 8Gb and newest insider build - im thinking of 8-> 16gb upgrade with 950gtx as my GPU
The video card may help your gaming a lot, but 8 GB of memory is more than enough for any game, especially the ones you mentioned.
Quite an array of different codes been popping up since I upgraded to windows 10 in the last couple of months
memory management was another one
I have attached several dumps, as I am a bit at my wits end as to...
BSOD persists after fresh install of Windows 10 from windows 8.1, happens when playing heroes of the storm quite often but has happened while browsing pinterest/facebook.
As soon as I fired up Sony Vegas 13 and started to record (setting up the microphone was a whole other issue), I was presented with a Low Memory Warning (in Sony Vegas). Personally I think I should have adjusted the Virtual Memory ages ago (Win7),...
Edge is not any faster than IE 11 on my laptop with SSD.
Google Chrome has it by a mile!
Even Firefox beats it hands down.
The fact that Edge will not likely have any extensions to test by July 29 is a huge deception.
After all, people who...
a question to all the testers out there: Are boot times of Win 10 installed on an SSD faster than on 8.1?
With and without fast startup....?!
Thanx for anwering
