    This was posted by Corsair a couple of days ago. What does everyone think? Is this just an attempt to get people to upgrade to shinny corsair ram, or is this finally a reason for gamers to have good ram/ overclock our current sticks?

    No way the average FPS increases by 20 just by adding faster RAM (1920x1200 ultra graph)... BF3 barely gains 3 FPS from high speed RAM. It is just bloated graphs and marketing.

    That's what I thought, but apparently a lot of people noticed similar results when they used higher speed memory.

    George Makris (from Corsair) talked about it on the Linus tech tips live stream. (at 55:19)

    I think that this might actually have some merit to it, and might be to do with next-gen finally allowing games to push hardware in significant ways.
