Corsair Gaming Performance Analysis
AN804: Gaming Performance Analysis – 4GB vs. 2GB examines the benefits on a system’s performance when upgrading from 2GB of system memory to 4GB. Taking a real-world benchmarking approach, Corsair looked specifically at:
* Frame rate improvements
* Multi-tasking scenarios
* Program load times
* Memory usage of various applications
“Frankly, we were surprised by the magnitude of many of these results,” stated John Beekley, VP of Applications Engineering at Corsair. “The gains achieved in eliminating instances of slow frame rates in games resulted in a very apparent improvement in the quality of game play. Also, the faster task switching that 4GB offers the user results in real productivity increases.”
Utilizing 4GB of memory provided significant performance benefits to the system. Minimum frame rates within popular games increased up to 46% in the tests, thereby creating a smoother and more enjoyable gaming experience. 4GB of memory led to shortened program load times and vastly more efficient multi-tasking flexibility, which can lead to more productivity for users.
4GB kits of Corsair’s award winning DOMINATOR and XMS memory are widely available from Corsair retailers and etailers. Corsair memory products are backed by a lifetime warranty. Complete customer support via telephone, email, forum and the TSXpress helpdesk are also available. For more information, see www.corsair.com
