Negligble, get a better vga instead.'Apparantly reality has a strong liberal bias'

It depends on the memory requirement of the program you are running. Most of today's software and games will not show any noticeable difference. On most apps and games, you'll only see about a 0% to 2.5% increase. Max increase around 5% to 7% on a few selected programs.
Although your memory bandwidth will increase about 36%, it offers very little performance increase with today's software. Perhaps in a couple years, programmers will utilize more memory bandwidth and this will change. For now, we donít see much improvement.
