  1. Chrome uses 10x more RAM than Safari on macOS No surprises there then... What you need to know New research from the creator of Flotato suggests Chrome uses 10x the amount of RAM that Safari does on macOS. In one stress test it was as high as 24x... Source: iMore New research from Flotato creator Morten Just has revealed Chrome uses 10x more memory than Safari when browsing on macOS. In a recent blog post Just stated: I reached a point where I could barely hear the podcast I was trying to listen to. That's how loud the fan was. Then I closed down all open Chrome windows, and a few minutes after, the fan went silent. So I decided to see if it was just me. I ran the 2-tab test in a completely fresh macOS install on a virtual machine. Then I ran the 54-tabs test on my own Big Sur installation, but with all extensions disabled. To record a usage snapshot ~250 times per second, I used psrecord. The results Testing the browsers by visiting Twitter, opening a new tab with Gmail and then checking an email, Just found the following results: Source: Morten Just Yikes. Just found that Chrome reached 1GB of RAM usage using just two tabs, whilst Safari in the same scenario only used 80MB. Flotato, Just's lightweight version of Chrome that turns web pages into app windows, used even less memory. However, as most of you know, two tabs can kindly be described as "rookie numbers". In a stress test where Just opened 54 tabs, he found that each Chrome tab used on average 290MB of ram, compared to 12MB on Safari, that's 24x as much! Suspicious of the numbers and whether the virtual machine was hampering results, the same tests were repeated on a regular Mac running Big Sur (and a 16-inch MBP with an i9 processor and 32GB of RAM at that). The results were worse. A notorious memory hog, the results aren't too surprising. Last year Jonathan Morrison managed to max out Apple's Mac Pro using 6,000 Google Chrome tabs.

  2. Hi Guyz, Just Got PES 2014. Am having issues with play this game because of this Any idea how I can increase it?
  3. PC DDR4 pricing back to where it was in Oct 2016. Further declines expected in Q1 and Q2. Technology market intelligence firm TrendForce, or more precisely its DRAMeXchange division, has published what looks to be some good news for PC enthusiasts. Last year we saw signs that this might happen, but now some trends have been set in motion which should deliver "significant price declines for DRAM products during 1H19". In brief, there are both seasonal and oversupply factors in play here and it is possible that we will see PC DRAM price decline of 20 per cent or so by the end of Q1 2019. DRAMeXchange notes that Contract prices of DRAM products across all major application markets already registered declines of more than 15 per cent month-on-month in January, and they will continue their descent in February and March. If that is really the case then a 20 per cent drop in Q1 looks to be a guarded estimate. Looking ahead to Q2 2019 DRAMeXchange reckons the oversupply situation will persist and mainstream DRAM products will drop by an average further 15 per cent in this period. We all know new tech, especially new smartphone releases, can eat up available DRAM supply but demand related to 5G, AIoT, IIoT, and automotive electronics still is in the growth stage, while the smartphone market has decelerated as people hold onto mobiles for longer due to lack of innovation. It remains to be seen if Android phone makers can produce devices compelling enough at the upcoming MWC to spur a flurry of updates. Considering PC market specifics, DRAMeXchange observes that the average contract price of mainstream 8GB PC DRAM modules is on its way to under US$45 at the time of reporting. Similarly server RAM oversupply has affected the market, in this case even more severely as it is expected to see a price decline of nearly 30 per cent QoQ. PC DDR4 pricing in the UK today All the above talk of contract and spot prices of DRAM might seem a little detached from what we actually pay for PC memory modules. Therefore it is worth a look at the trends on sites like CamelCamelCamel, which back up the analyst charts, and trends. For example, here in the UK, Crucial 4GB DDR4 2400 MT/s memory modules are at their cheapest price since October 2016, at £24.28. I also checked out the Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB DDR4 2400MHz C16 module pricing. As you can see that is also trending nicely for would-be buyers at £48.62. Again, this is probably the best pricing we have seen for these modules since October 2016. Should you therefore wait a little longer if you are thinking about upgrading your PC RAM? According to the TrendForce analysts, it would seem like the answer to that is yes. No advice intended, remember 'stuff' happens, and the GBP could move very strongly one way or another in the coming weeks, for example. View: Original Article.
  4. The DRAM and NAND Flash markets enjoyed a massive boom in recent years, to the point where there have been allegations of price fixing. Late last year, market analysts began talking about ‘steep declines’ due in 2019. Now according to updated analysis, DRAM contract prices are in the sharpest decline since 2011. According to analysis from DRAMeXchange, a subsidiary of TrendForce, a lot of current DRAM contracts have switched to monthly deals rather than quarterly deals, with the biggest price decline occurring in February. According to the report, DRAM prices have dropped by nearly 30 percent, resulting in the biggest quarterly decline since 2011. DRAMeXchange says contract prices between fabricators and other companies began declining in late 2018. Now, inventory levels have built up, which has led to further price drops. DRAM suppliers are apparently holding six weeks worth of unsold inventory. Aside from that, the analysis states that PC OEMs are unable to begin using up larger chunks of DRAM supply as demand is being suppressed. This is partially brought on by a shortage in low-end Intel CPUs. As a result, excessively high inventory will continue to cause a downward trend in prices until demand rises again.

    RAMExpert 1.11

    RAMExpert RAMExpert gives you a crystal-clear vision of your RAM (Random Access Memory) specification. It then recommends upgrade if appropriate. RAMExpert is a straightforward application designed to provide a simple method of retrieving extensive RAM information. In addition to fetching RAM reports, the program also pinpoints empty RAM slots, encouraging you to upgrade your system in order to benefit from higher performance. It is the to-go version of RAMExpert, sporting the exact feature set as the latter; the only difference is that the portable version doesn’t write to the system’s registry (as opposed to the installer edition) and can be carried around on a removable drive and launched on any computer. RAMExpert is very intuitive and comes wrapped inside a user-oriented interface, being fit for all audiences, regardless of the level of IT knowledge. Simply double-click the EXE file in order to launch it, then start exploring the report, which will be immediately fetched. The overview includes details such as number of slots, current vs maximum memory, as well as real-time stats of the amount of used RAM. The program detects the slots that are currently occupied and delivers several details, namely slot name, capacity, manufacturer, model, type and serial number. Extensive specifications can be retrieved by pressing the ‘Get Specification’ button corresponding to each slot. RAMExpert also shows empty slots, suggesting upgrades by redirecting you to Amazon where you can purchase this type of hardware (however, this is simply a recommendation, since you can acquire RAM from wherever you want). In conclusion, RAMExpert is able to provide essential RAM information that is necessary for any computer user who wants to keep an eye on resource usage and computer performance.

  7. Why Memory Optimizers and RAM Boosters Are Worse Than Useless Chris Hoffman @chrisbhoffman November 1, 2014, 4:04am EDT Many companies want to sell you “memory optimizers,” often as part of “PC optimization” programs. These programs are worse than useless — not only will they not speed up your computer, they’ll slow it down. Such programs take advantage of inexperienced users, making false promises about boosting performance. In reality, your computer knows how to manage RAM on its own. It will use RAM to increase your computer’s performance — there’s no point in having RAM sit empty. Is Your Computer’s RAM Filling Up? That’s Good! Memory optimizers are based on a misunderstanding. You may look at your computer’s RAM and see it filling up — for example, you may have 4 GB of RAM and see that 3 GB is full with only 1 GB to spare. That can be surprising to some people — look how bloated modern versions of Windows are! How are you ever going to run additional programs with so little memory available? In reality, modern operating systems are pretty good at managing memory on their own. That 3 GB of used RAM doesn’t necessarily indicate waste. Instead, your computer uses your RAM to cache data for faster access. Whether it’s copies of web pages you had open in your browser, applications you previously opened, or any other type of data you might need again soon, your computer hangs onto it in its RAM. When you need the data again, your computer doesn’t have to hit your hard drive — it can just load the files from RAM. Crucially, there’s no point in having RAM empty. Even if your RAM is completely full and your computer needs more of it to run an application, your computer can instantly discard the cached data from your RAM and use that space for the application. There’s no point in having RAM sit empty — if it’s empty, it’s being wasted. If it’s full, there’s a good chance it can help speed up program loading times and anything else that would use your computer’s hard drive. Notice that very little RAM is actually “free” in the screenshot below. The RAM is being used as a cache, but it’s still marked as available for any program that needs to use it. In the past, full RAM did indicate a problem. If you were running Windows Vista on a computer with half a gig of RAM, you could feel the computer constantly slowing down — it had to constantly read and write to the hard drive, using the hard drive’s page file as an inefficient replacement for RAM. However, modern computers generally have enough RAM for most users. Even low-end computers generally ship with 4GB of RAM, which should be more than enough unless you’re doing intensive gaming, running multiple virtual machines, or editing videos. Even if RAM was a problem for you, there’s no reason to use a memory optimizer. Memory optimizers are snake oil that are useless at best and harmful at worst. How Memory Optimizers Work When you use a memory optimizer, you’ll see your computer’s RAM usage go down. This may seem like an easy win — you’ve decreased RAM usage just be pressing a button, after all. But it’s not that simple. Memory optimizers actually work in one of two ways: They call the EmptyWorkingSet Windows API function, forcing running applications to write their working memory to the Windows page file. They quickly allocate a large amount of memory to themselves, forcing Windows to discard cached data and write application data to the page file. They then deallocate the memory, leaving it empty. Both of these tricks will indeed free up RAM, making it empty. However, all this does is slow things down — now the applications you use will have to get the data they need from the page file, reading from the hard drive and taking longer to work. Any memory being used for cache may be discarded, so Windows will have to get the data it needs from the hard drive. In other words, these programs free up fast memory by forcing data you need onto slower memory, where it will have to be moved back to fast memory again. This makes no sense! All it accomplishes is selling you another system optimization program you don’t need. If Windows needs RAM, it will push data to the page file or discard cached data, anyway. This all happens automatically when it needs to — there’s no point in slowing things down by forcing it to happen before it’s necessary. Like PC cleaning apps, memory optimizers are a scam. They appear to be doing something positive to people who don’t understand how memory management works, but they’re actually doing something harmful. How to Actually “Optimize” Your Memory If you do want to have more available RAM, skip the memory optimizer. Instead, try to get rid of running applications you don’t need — purge unnecessary programs from your system tray, disable useless startup programs, and so on. If you do need more RAM for what you do, try buying some more RAM. RAM is pretty cheap and it’s not too hard to install it yourself using one of the RAM installing guides available online. Just ensure you buy the correct type of RAM for your computer. Yes, memory optimizers can free up some of your PC’s RAM. However, that’s a bad thing — you want your computer to use its RAM to speed things up. There’s no point in having free memory. Source Old article, but still very relevant!
  8. How much RAM do you really need in your gaming PC? How much RAM should you cram into your gaming PC? (Image credit: Future) If you've been paying attention to the system requirements for PC games over the last year or so, you'll probably notice that a lot of them are asking for some pretty beefy specs. If you were to take these requirements' word for it, you'd believe that a $40,000 PC is necessary to play all the best PC games maxed out at 4K. Luckily, you don't need to follow these system requirements to the letter, as a lot of them are a bit overblown. However, the component that gets the most overblown hype in these system requirements is system memory, or RAM. We've started to notice that a lot of games – most recently Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – are recommending gamers to have 16GB of memory in their rigs. But, is that actually necessary? Well, luckily, we have some hardware lying around that we can see whether you truly need to cram a bunch of new RAM into your gaming PC. You don't actually need 16GB of RAM – yet To test whether or not you actually need 16GB of RAM to get some gaming done, we shoved an 8GB kit of RAM – two 4GB sticks for dual-channel performance – into our test bench with an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X and an RTX 2080 Ti just to remove any other bottleneck. Oh, and we ran all of our tests at 4K (3,840 x 2,160). We ran through the canned benchmarks in both Metro Exodus and Middle Earth: Shadow of War, two of the most demanding PC games around right now. And, it will probably shock you, but if you have 16GB you'll get slightly better frame rates, but not by much. In Metro Exodus at 4K and max settings (including ray tracing), we got an average of 36 frames per second (fps) with our 16GB system, whereas that number dropped down to 34 fps when we went down to 8GB. That's a 6% difference, so it's nothing to scoff at, but it probably isn't enough to ruin your experience. Even the 1% lows were within this 5-6% window, with the 16GB kit hitting a 24 fps low, while the 8GB kit bottomed out at 23 fps. The difference was even less pronounced in Middle Earth: Shadow of War. In that game, our 16GB PC got an average of 75 fps, whereas our 8GB system scored 74. This is such a small difference that it's totally within the margin of error. (Image credit: Tobias Dahlberg from Pixabay ) But, that might be ending soon So, users with 8GB of RAM should be fine in the near future, especially if you're not trying to play graphical powerhouses like Battlefield V or Metro Exodus at 4K. Hell, even when we were playing Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice for 'work' we only noticed our rig using 7GB of system memory, and that was with several Chrome tabs open in the background. However, back when we were testing Borderlands 3 performance, we did notice that game chewing through system memory like it was so much bubble gum. That game, even with minimal tasks running in the background, will chew through 12GB of system memory, and that's even with an RTX 2080 Ti, which has 11GB of video memory available. Like most things, it's all going to boil down to which games you're trying to play and the quality settings you're willing to live with. Even if you're playing the latest and greatest AAA games, if you're willing to turn down some settings every now and then, you should be fine with 8GB of RAM for a while yet. If you're the kind of person to lose their mind whenever you can't run a game maxed out at 120 fps, you're going to want to pick up that 16GB RAM kit – but we suspect most people in this category have already done so. For most people, especially if you just want to play some Overwatch to escape from the horrors of your everyday life for a little while, 8GB is more than enough, and we wouldn't recommend spending that cash on a new RAM kit. But, even if you aren't comfortable with 8GB of RAM, and you want to upgrade to be safe, at least RAM is cheaper now than it has been in a few years, so now would be the time to upgrade. Who knows when it will be this cheap again? Source: How much RAM do you really need in your gaming PC? (TechRadar)
