If you take 8gb out, is there a significant difference?

I read that there's not a major difference between speeds and that it's a more intriguing measurement. The speed 1333mhz is standard for sandybridge processors and going higher doesn't give that much compared to the price for higher speed RAM.

But, I would think with a virtual machine, being able to assign more RAM per VM would mean a difference so 8gb vs 16gb might be a worthwhile comparison. I mean, the additional RAM would, in theory, make a difference?
