Will upgrading RAM help me get more fps?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I was thinking about making an upgrade to my laptop, because my fps drops to 16-25 when I play with other players that have flashy aoe skills. For a couple of months, I've played the game with players off and all graphical settings on lowest except for textures.


Since it's a laptop and not a pc, upgrading my cpu and gpu is not possible, so I'm thinking about adding more RAM. I have 6gig of RAM at the moment and I want to add 2gig more. I want to know if this will improve my fps a bit more.


Here are my specs:



Windows 10 64 bit

Intel core I7-5500U 3.0 GHz

Nvidia Geforce 920m

6gb Ram


The above specs are way above the recommended specs, so it should run well without any upgrade. I'm confused why I'm still lagging in simple places like heaven's mandate and cold storage.

Ram doesn't help much with FPS issue. Ram helps in loading the game faster such as faster loading screens when changing maps or going through portals. 


Better and faster graphic cards can help with FPS problem. You have good CPU already, so no need to upgrade it.

When B&S update their clients to 64 bits, it will help with FPS problem too. You can wait until then and see if you still have FPS problem with 64 bits client.

Ram has very little to do with FPS. You are using a very weak graphics card, a 920m. Seeing how you are using a laptop, your only way to get better fps is you buy a laptop with a stronger graphics card, or buy a desktop with a stronger graphics card.


Your graphics card is actually less than the recommended HD4850/8800GT when looking at a Passmark benchmark. Your internal graphics (intel hd 5500) on the processor is also worse than the 920m. Make sure when you are running Blade and Soul, you launch it with the 920m as the graphics processor.
