What computers comes with RAM that isn't 'fast enough' today?
The poster was possibly thinking about the fact that RAM speed does affect the performance of AMD CPUs and APUs.
With faster RAM you'd only drop down to 20.5 fps instead of 20.0 😏

Not that RAM speed has that much of an impact, but RAM in my last build was pretty garbage and I did update it. Helps in some other (non-SWTOR!) things.

As to AMD.. yeah, they have always had on again off again timing issues over the years, many of those issues dating back to when they first acquired DEC Alpha and retro'd those chips for consumer use.

For RAM in general, Once the industry standard shifted into DDR3, the majority of 'RAM speed' issues went away.

A full 0.5 extra FPSWhat a bargain.

Don't get the wrong idea. Fast RAM for AMD chips does make a difference, especially for the APUs, where the man memory is shared with the graphics.
For current AMD CPUs and APUs (Cpu + Gpu), DDR4-3200 to 3600 is the current sweet spot for price/performance.

My only point was that, when it comes to the fps drops in PvP and OPs, RAM speed isn't going to make enough difference to even be noticeable. 🙂

Personally.......as a gamer, I find tremendous comfort in having my fast high quality overclocked sticks for the times when it matters. I admit that I am a RAM enthusiast and actually have the patience to find the lower clocks that are stable to provide the best data transfer on my board. Always use the QVL from the motherboard manufacturer before going shopping for hardware. You can still be price savvy but have a great high performing pc. Don't forget that every piece of hardware is equally important to overall system performance. As a recommendation, aside from the mobo qvl, you should always go with the software also provided by the mobo manufacturer as ANYTHING else is a risk. hope this helps!!!

Edit: I am currently using https://www.gskill.com/product/165/166/1562839659/
These are the tried & true B-die that have extremely low latency when overclocked. Yes you will pay more for the die, but you have great versatility for lower timings and longevity if you wish to change boards. I don't do extreme overclocking for benchmarks as I take care of my hardware, but these sticks do exceptionally well for all gaming with really good stability for enthusiasts.

Oh yeah I'm just memeing the game's poor performance
