Battlefield 4 Loves High Speed Memory

The folks at Corsair are pretty damn excited about Battlefield 4. Why are they so excited you might ask? Well, if you were seeing performance gains like this from boosting memory speed, I guess you'd be excited too. smile

The takeaway is that Frostbite Engine 3 is capable of pushing the memory subsystem in ways we hadn’t anticipated. Other games are due to be released on Frostbite Engine 3, too, and they’re not inconsiderable titles. We’re talking about Dragon Age: Inquisition, Mirror’s Edge 2, Need for Speed: Rivals, and the next Mass Effect. If you’re still running DDR3-1600 and Battlefield 4 or one of these other games is on your radar, now may be the time to upgrade to some faster Vengeance, Vengeance Pro, or Dominator Platinum memory. I don’t think 1600MHz is going to cut it anymore, and frankly, I’m kind of excited to see where the technology goes from here.
