You're reading it wrong. The sentence starts "nowadays" meaning now we have upto 300% more RAM than a few years ago and THAT makes a huge difference.
In this context the article is right. A LOW memory system will not be able to keep frequently used files in memory, which means it cannot open everything to its full potential. Not everything is in memory ergo, not everything can be opened fast. In this case, more memory would be and advantage.
You've heard the adage "Unused RAM is wasted RAM"? Well, it's true. Empty RAM serves no purpose. If its not caching a file there for quick access, it's not doing anything to improve the speed of opening files.
So, the SGS3 has plenty of RAM. It fits the most frequently used files in memory easily. If we give it more RAM we're allowing that RAM (which will fill up until its almost full) to become useless. There are not enough frequently used files to full it, so the frequency of use of the files it caches becomes so low that caching them becomes pointless. So now we're caching files we don't need or barely use. How is that beneficial to the speedy operation of the device?
