Intel 13th Generation DDR4 vs DDR5

Blender

We accept that the Core i9 will outperform the Core i5, but that's not what we're here to see. The difference between the DDR5 and DDR4 are nothing like as marked as we'd expect. Only 7 seconds difference between the harshest/longest of our tests.

Great work once again Guv!!!

So, I'll be upgrading my Z690 DDR4 rig to a 13600K and I've also got my B550 5800X3D rig; I think that covers all the bases for me moving forward Quote

Excellent comparison, I find the top of the line comparison more relevant with these systems than using some value DDR4 as it is the "budget option". I've invested in b-die, I want to keep using it.


I find the differences in minimum framerates very interesting, and it is also the most meaningful metric in my opinion. You feel those spikes, not average fps.Quote

Exactly. I watched another review video today and they would say there is a 6% difference in X game. Yeah, the averages. Not the minimum. The minimum and .1% lows are the only thing I care about.Quote

Somehow, I find this very worrying. Maybe you guys can take this from me.



As it stand, currently, DDR4 = better for gaming, but could currently existing games get patches to benefit more from DDR5 or does that not lie within a game's engine, but moreso in the OS or CPU itself?


I don't really want to buy "old" tech if the possibility exists that the new tech becomes better even in older games over time.Quote
