slow ram? (windows)

10 posts in this topic

Hey, i got an self made pc witch has :

i5-760

gainward gtx 570

8gb ddr3 1333mhz

ssd for windows

2x hdd's for games and other documents

But the problem is that in for example battlefield 3 my brother's pc beat my pc in loading the maps and he has an pc with

amd phenom II x2 cpu

gtx 460 that he borrows from me

8 gb ddr3 (unknown mhz)

and one hdd for windows and games

So how can he's pc be faster in loading maps than my pc?

i'm really confused here :S

Edit: Forgot to mention that we both have win 7 ultimate 64bit.

Its because he has a better CPU and probably better RAM

dang, i ment he has quadcore cpu.

but amd aint supposed to be better than intel

even an intel core 2 quad is better than phenom 2 quadl

and my brother runs on an 3 year old 7200rpm disc and i run the game on an year old samsung spinpoint f3 disc

so i dontt understand anything..

Maybe you use more of your RAM in other software and such working Background than him?

The AMD is better as far as specs from what I searched up

Amd for me is for multitasking and for servers.

Intel is for gaming. (had amd once, my intel pentium 4 one core beat the amd in performance)

But i dont think that too many processes and programs running will do any impact on the free unused ram, just the processor.

And my processor gets to 100% in 1 second only when loading maps, same with my brother's pc.

The processor is what makes the computer faster not the RAM. I would rather have a 4.0 Intel i7 Extreme with 8-16GB or RAM over 3.8 Intel i7 Extreme with 64GB of RAM.
