Hello guys. Recently I had to play with only 8gb of ram and I was surprised how much of a difference it made...


So I decided to make a video about it and share it for you to see...

started playing recently and I only have 8gb of ram. Its a stuttering mess. Borderline unplayable. Gonna upgrade to 16gb ram now lol. But I also wonder if ram speed has a big effect on this game.

Having done this upgrade myself today with 1333 ddr3 ram i can confirm it makes a massive difference to have at least 16gb ram!! I couldn't ride the metro a New babbage before...I can now!!!

No, I'm afraid single channel vs dual channel DOES matter. The true test for 8GB vs 16GB is two 4GB sticks vs two 8GB sticks. Otherwise the test is not realistic.

I have 16gb, trying to decide if it's worth upgrading to 32.

Hello! May I ask if I'm using an i5 2500 3.3ghz, gtx 1050 ti 4 gb, with 16 gb of ram and running on a HDD.
What settings should I use and probably how much fps can I run SC with?

Why in another tests the gtx 1060 can't handle this game over 20 fps?

I tried play this game 3.14 version on rayzen 5, 8gb, rtx 570 4gb and SSD... and the lag i have running it with my computer spec above its almost unplayable! This game definitely need a high spec graphic, processor and ram.

Can you share how good or bad the game performs when you overvlock your gpu ?, I'm using 1060 3gb, wondering if I can improve my game perfomance through 1060 overvlock or buy a new gpu?
