GTA 5 Memory Benchmark

My current PC is a pretty fast 4.4Ghz I5 and Titan X. For a long time I have been running with 8GB of RAM, and even with the minimum page file, have not felt the need to upgrade as no game came close to using it.

Well GTA 5 changed that, and with my VirtualBox usage, I thought it would be a good time to upgrade, move the 8GB into another system and get a 16GB pair at a faster clock speed.

But would the upgrade actually improve GTA 5? Running the included benchmark using my preferred quality settings:

Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600mhz CL9 – Average FPS: 80.7 – Frames above 60 FPS: 94% 91% 99% 99% 90%
Corsair 16GB DDR3 2400mhz CL11 – Average FPS: 84.4 – Frames above 60 FPS: 97% 97% 99% 99% 96%

So the answer is yes, only slightly, but enough to help keep the FPS above the important 60 mark.

Happy 2016

Just realised I have not posted any news for a whole year! I am still alive and have posted little updates for tools.

The main reason for the quiet is that the majority of my day at work is taking up with projects and C# coding, so when I get home my brain just wants to switch off and watch something funny on TV or play some co-op with friends.

In the few moments where I do feel like doing something, it's usually VR related, I am just starting to tinker with Unity 5, I tried UE4 for a bit and while it's powerful, the learning curve with C++ and Blueprints for a hobby project was too much, where with Unity, the familiarity of the language meant I quickly picked things up, and it was fun!

This means that a lot of my PHP stuff is in limbo, but luckily there are good people who are taking the time to share
updates on the forum with others, so I try my best to keep the site up and clear of spam.
