The same goes for gaming applications.
Gamers who use AMD platforms may achieve a 1.5% increase in performance if they take the trouble of finding special memory capable of working with Phenom II X6 processors at 2000 MHz. The performance benefits look negligible if you compare platforms with similar memory frequencies but you shouldn’t dismiss the influence of memory on performance altogether. For example, the difference between DDR3-2000 and DDR3-1333 with the same timings is as high as 5%.
By the way, the strong point of the G.Skill F3-16000CL7D-4GBFLS modules is their ability to work with rather aggressive timings. That’s why DDR3-2000 comes out the winner in the tests above. For example, DDR3-1667 SDRAM with 7-7-7-21 timings is just as fast as DDR3-2000 with 9-9-9-27 timings in most cases.
