    Question Can RAM speed affect performance in terms of FPS

    4 years ago I bought 3 ram sticks when I knew nothing about PCs in general (each 16gb 2133Mhz). And now I know that I absolutely don't need 48 GB of ram memory, but at the time, I got 3 of them at the price of 2 which seemed like a good deal. However, I had no clue that 2133Mhz is very low. Will...

    Question How did Apple achieve such high memory bandwidth on the M1 Pro and Max ?

    The M1 Pro has whopping 200 GB/s and the M1 Max has an insane 400 GB/s of memory bandwidth. How did Apple achieve this ? They don't use GDDR or HBM RAM, but regular LPDDR (!), which makes it all the more puzzling.
