My point (again) is that if adding memory above a certain point does make a difference, then it should be proveable. Via stupid benchmarks, or whatever, we can prove that an Athlon 3700 is faster than an Athlon 3200. Even that an Athlon 3700 is usually faster than a Pentium 3.2. Many people quote these stupid benchmarks to justify their buying habits.
I believe red cars go faster than blue cars. That doesn't mean they do.
first of all, I NEVER say you misinterpret my point. I am not even talking to you. You said it urself, you never refer to it, why would U think I was talking
Benchmark can be unreliable as well. Different video card have different benchmark as some card is better than the other when come to performance even they are the same card. Website A will say X800 is slightly better than 6800 while website B say 6800 is slightly better than X800 and all based on benchmark results. Also, some program that gives benchmark RUNS BETTER at some specific brand of processor than the others as it is programmed to run better. You can check out the benchmark results for the INTEL 6xx chip , the site stated that point. The benchmark program FAVOR intel chip more than amd chip. Different video card can be OC to different level. some are better than the other. you can't absolutely sure that AtI must be better than 6800 based on ONE benchmark. There are alot of factors that affect the performace of the hardware as well. maybe the tester is testing the chip at different day under different room temperature. YES. cooler room temperature, more air circulation can help to increase the perforrmance of the chip cux it helps to lower the temperature of the CPU. If the tester benchmark the chips at DIFFERENT ROOM WITH DIFFERENT ROOM TEMPERATURE, you won't know if the benchmark is still 100% reliable.
You said it yourself, you believe red car faster than blue car but doesn't seem they do. but you never test them.
But those ppl who upgraded the ram is using THE SAME COMPUTER, SAME WINDOW XP OR XP PRO and they can tell the difference in performance as they are using their computer everyday. It may load program in 5s instead of 30s, start window in 3 min instead of the usual 10 min, running 7 different programs at the same time and results NO LAG after upgrade but it was lag like hell before upgrade. Thats INCREASE IN PERFORMANCE.
obviously these improve in performance doesn't need benchmark to prove it and even a 10 years old can tell its faster based on the above results.
a guy can show you now i am using 256 ram to play MMORPG and lag like hell and now he use 1 gb ram to play n its much smoother. but you would say "you believe its faster but it doesn't seem like faster, I won't believe it is really faster until someone benchmark the results while u a playing the game after upgrade".
So everyone's judgement is basically crap to you as they can't judge or know that their system is faster or slower when they use it. so basically not just me, so many people who reply here doesn't need to say anymore cux their judgement is useless.
I should not say anything anymore, its bad
