Does anyone know if this faster ram is actually noticeably faster than my PC-10700? I do realize that it's technically impossible to answer with a "yes / no", because it depends on the job at hand, and "noticeably faster" is subjective too. So, I'm asking for a biased, subjective opinion, whether it's worth upgrading ram (given that ram is not exactly dirt cheap these days)? I do realize that I am likely to see "some" increase in performance if I go for faster ram, AND 2 x 8GB, but at this point I'm just curious whether PC3-14900, same size, is noticeably faster than PC-10700?
p.s. and as I'm at at, has anyone noticed a (subjective :) performance increase moving from x220 to x230, same processor? There is a youtube video to display benchmarks, but again, I'm curious about subjective impressions. I'm not opening an x220 / x230 museum, but now they're cheap enough, so I'd use one as a semi-throwaway, kind of, laptop for a trip when I'll have to work too, but then, if it survives, it'll be handed over to one of my kids, and an x230, if I pick one up too, will go to the other :)
X220 to X230 will not give a noticeable CPU speed boost; GPU speed - maybe, and also X230 GPU better supports Windows 10 and has some support for triple-display configurations.

I also don't believe the faster ram is worth the expense. YMMV
