Corsair have produced a new application note today which takes a look at the varying performance characteristics of switching from 1GB to 2GB of system memory on mainstream platforms. The PDF formatted document includes benchmark charts and test results from an assortment of popular game titles and benchmarking applications, with a clear summary of whether or not investing in 2GBs of system memory is the way to go these days. All in all, another well constructed and informative app-note from the Corsair team.
This report will explore the relationship between a system's memory array size and its performance. We will build test setups based on current popular hardware and run a variety of benchmarks using both one gigabyte (1 GByte) and two gigabyte (2 GByte) memory array sizes, while keeping memory settings constant. We will tabulate these results and see what conclusions can be drawn. In order to generate a comprehensive set of results, test setups were constructed based on both the Intel and AMD processor platform.
