So you think you have enough RAM ... (series)

Recommended Posts

44GB usage on a default install (almost default)

uc?id=1YMlrvhW04MLewzJ8XdfyTaU8sCDpGlgv

verified with several tools

uc?id=1dm0MwV6zLlwaVZ-G-HoV2f42slzo7itt

This is on my Development PC with 128GB RAM with some allocated to a RAMDisk.

Cheers, Rob.

Well in normal flight scenario with 3d party add-ons you never will see that load, or your system would be crawling 🤣 Amazing to see the load nevertheless thanks for sharing and yes I think I have enough for now...

Thats default, no tweaks ... not sure why, I’ve reported to LM ... this seems not by design or there is some OS, BIOS issue?

How can that be a default install?  Do you mean completely vanilla?  Surely you have some aftermarket scenery eating into that ram total?

Otherwise, I'd think you have stumbled upon a memory leak or something similar?

Sure that majority of RAM is allocated to P3D? Maybe you left your ramdisk running.

LOL.. 640K was never enough for me.. I remember the amount of time I wasted dealing with the highmem area and editing the DOS config.sys to have as much as memory possible.

640K would have been sheer luxury! My first PC, and the one I wrote my successful word processor on ("Wordcraft") had only 8k initially.  That was the Commodore Pete 2001, in late 1977.

Lots of memory encourages "bloatware". I've always tried to make sure never to use more memory than necessary, a habit developed from those days.  And generally small == fast. :-)

My dad gave me a Commodore 16 when I was 10 years old.. I had so much fun with it writing my first lines of code there.. but saving and loading the programs using magnetic tapes was a very slow lol..

that were times ... autoexc.bat, config.sys, highmem .. .I loved to play with those. It gave me the feeling I would understand computer  ... what a misjudgment.

So you are using a RAM disk for P3D. Does it make texture loading faster? Maybe I can shift some or all ai a/c to a RAM disk. Would that make sense in anyway?

Depends on what you are comparing it to ... if you have and SSD/M.2 then you'll see NO difference at all.  If you have an HDD, then you'll see a difference.

You're famous ... or was that the Commodore PET?  hehe

TRS-80 "color" computer (motorola) $900 1981 ... my folks helped me buy it as Xmas gift in addition to some cash I coughed up from my Pizza delivery job (note to anyone else doing pizza delivery, yes even in the 1980's tips were good and I "felt" rich).

Cheers, Rob.
