It matters if you're playing at a high resolution.
If you run some benchmarks of performance at 1024x768 at 8-8, and then at 16-16, there will be very little difference.
If you run some benchmarks of performance at 1920x1080, 2560x1440, or 4096x2160, especially in dual- or tri-monitor setups, you will notice a much larger difference.
