Crysis Framerate Benches with 2gb vs 4gb ram?
 
Anyone know of any?

I would like to see some aswell.
this had to be done on just Vista 64 thuogh since there's a performance difference between x86 & x64 as it is.

I don't think you will see an actual FPS difference, the game will just play much smoother and hitch less, I noticed this when I went from 2GB to 4GB.

Less hitiching will generally translate to a little better framerates in either of the CPU/GPU benchmarks. i wanna see that & make sure there is a difference.

Traditionally it never seems to translate into an FPS difference until you hit other limitations. But it's worth a try.

I just came from 2gb and I didn't notice an increase in performance, but load times in all my currently installed game halved roughly. I also noticed exiting games is lightning quick now, before the Vista would come to a halt exiting The Witcher for 30secs, now it's out done and dusted in a split second. :D

Do you get less stuttering when playing Crysis say at high or v.high ? esp with grenade explosions or when entering different areas ..

Yeah, definitely less stutter, especially removed the stutter before I detonate a High Explosive.

Amazing! yeah i get that stutter before deteonating HG's more than often.
i might seriously consider upgrading my RAM even if XP/Vista 32-bit will not read them all.

It's worth it. Vista on a whole feels a lot more responsive with 4.

Hmmm I never experienced shuttering with 3GB in Crysis at very high settings when here was explosions and in heavy firefights.

Yeah.

Think of it in terms of average FPS.

If the benchmark records 30-40fps 10 times per second for a few minutes then averages the results together, a few drops to 1-5 fps (a hitch\stutter) will hardly make any difference in the final average but will be very obvious in gameplay.

About the only way to show the results of a memory upgrade would probably be a line graph like [H] uses, to show the framerate throughout the entire benchmark. Ideally, more memory would result in fewer low spikes on a graph.

Fraps can record data like that. It probably wouldn't be too hard to do.
