It does when in low mem sitches...
Example, manipulating a small image in Photoshop, not much of a diff will be noticed (unless a very small amount of RAM has been allocated).
Using a large image though, there is a large difference.
It gives the program more room to breathe, basically.
And, you didn't increase it that much anyway...
