    So Anandtech's articles are generally very informative, but every once in a while they run an article that's jam-fucking packed full of relevant information. Their article on memory performance is one such article.

    As usual, a conclusion derived from skimming the charts is "don't bother for gaming" (with some games getting relatively tiny increases for double-bandwidth RAM), but it's great to see them running a full suite of benchmarks anyways, and the performance difference when it comes to 3D modeling is a little surprising. I know it's one of the few things that really loves more memory bandwidth, but I wasn't expecting that much of a difference.

    Anyways I figured some people here might like the read.

    At the moment 3D modeling programs are also the only ones who can use the extra bandwith of PCI-e 3.0
