What's the difference between DDR3 memory and GDDR5 memory?

Q: What's the difference between DDR3 memory and GDDR5 memory?

Hi to all at Techspot. I'm not a techie but noticed that there was two kinds of memory, DDR3 and DDR5. My Question is,
What's the difference between DDR3 Memory and the Graphics DDR5 Memory and if the DDR5 is in anyway better then why is it not used for desktop computer memory instead of DDR3.
I know some apps are taking advantage of or utilizing graphics memory Thanks for any explanation

Preferred Solution: What's the difference between DDR3 memory and GDDR5 memory?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: What's the difference between DDR3 memory and GDDR5 memory?

As far as I know, memories used on video cards have different characteristics than memories used on PC.. since this is beyond my knowledge, I'm sorry I can't explain much more in details.. Just wait for other members with deeper knowledge that can give some information regarding of this matter

I've been thinking about purchasing the Lenovo Yoga 710, but I realized it doesn't specify which type of memory for the Graphics card. This is a pretty big deciding factor in my purchase and I would like to know if anyone here knows?  I've done a bit of research and can't find anything on it.

I read thru the 20 Oct. 2012 "What's the difference between DDR3 memory and GDDR5 memory" and nearly all of that is way beyond my comprehension so I believe I am relatively a newbie on memory! (http://www.techspot.com/community/t...-between-ddr3-memory-and-gddr5-memory.186408/). My question is probably simple for a memory expert but if I have a choice of buying one graphics card and hypothetically they sell for the same price - which card should be my choice --- 1GB DDR3 or 512MB GDDR5? Thank you.

Hey I am replacing my desktop for a laptop and I happen to be wondering if the 1 GB GDDR5 version of the NVIDIA Geforce GT 555m offers better performance than the 2 GB DDR3 version of the card at 1366x768 resolution. Please offer your input and have a nice day!
 

A:GT 555m 1GB GDDR5 vs. 2GB DDR3

At that resolution there is probably no need for 2 gb vram. I would definitely go for the 1 gb GDDR5 version.

A:More about DDR3 memory

You know I love the quality of Corsair products and I won't buy anything except Corsair power supplies but the ram they have is such a rip off. Dominator ram is great except for the price really. When you compare the Dominator line to the Reaper line from OCZ you are getting the same thing for much less from OCZ.

If Corsair lowered the price to something more competitive I might consider buying from them but as it stands I will stick with OCZ for ram.

I just purchased a Acer Aspire Desktop Computer but it only comes with 2 sticks of DDR3 2Gb Ram memory and I need 8Gb of DDR3 Ram. It does not have to slots to add more memory but I was told that all I have to do is purchase 2 sticks of 4Gb and replace the 2 sticks of 2Gb DDR3 Ram. Does anyone know where I might buy these online that will not kill my budget? Thanks

I've tried expanding with four different DDR3 memories at both higher, lower and exactly 1600MHz. It seems I need a completely different memory as the computer won't even boot with any of these memories used alone. Updated bios as well without luck. I read about "Desktop Memory Model" shorted with "L". Is this the memory I need?

Hi Guys, thanks for reading

I've decided to build a new PC, building it around a AMD Phenom II Dual Core 250 3.0GHz CPU using a GA-MA770T-UD3P motherboard
(specs found here)http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Overview.aspx?ProductID=3096

The motherboard supports DDR3, but with so many different modules out there and me not knowing a great deal about them, i was wondering what perhaps will work well this the AMD 770+ Chipset and my choice of CPU.

I'm on a budget, although i know the price of these modules can be high, I would prefere to be making use of the 64bit capabilites so understand I need around 4gb, just not sure on the speeds, make, or other to go for.

Thanks again,
 

A:Help with DDR3 Memory choice

Have you looked at Gigabyte's recommended memory list: http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/FileList/MemorySupport/mb_memory_ga-ma770t-ud3p.pdf

You can also go to most memory manufacturer's websites and see what memory they have tested and listed as compatible with the board ie: http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=GA-MA770T-UD3P (rev. 1.0)#

The faster the memory speed the faster it can operate, although for the 1666Mhz you usually have to overclock and for 1333Mhz you have to manually set it to that speed or it'll run at 1066Mhz which is all you need for stock speeds if you don't plan to overclock the system.

Hello there

I was wondering if upgrading my RAM memory is worth the effort. I'm thinking about going from 4GB DDR3 to 8GB DDR3.

When I upgrade the RAM, will I notify a huge difference or do I just need to keep my 4 GB? I play alot of games, but I never play new games, only games like Call of Duty 4. Old(er) games are the best!

It's not like I really need the 8 GB but I want to be more "future proof".

Because some games of these days require such great specs. My PC (actually a laptop) can run games like Colin Mcrae Dirt 2 pretty good, but sometimes the frames per second (fps) rate goes down, i.e. when I ride thru the grass etc... which is normal.

Look at my specs underneath this post!

A:Upgrading RAM memory from 4 to 8 GB DDR3

Save your money as you wouldn't even notice the extra ram. Nothing you have listed will even be able to take advantage of it. Unless the game/app is 64 bit or large address aware, it can't use more than 2 GB anyway.

I game on this computer through Steam, and i was wondering, should I revert back to XP due to the less memory consumption or just move to x32 Windows 7.

Can you just take a computer that is running DDR2 memory and change the memory to DDR3 or do you have to add other items?
 

A:Substituting DDR2 Memory for DDR3

Memory controller and DIMM slots have to be DDR3 compatible.

So no, you cannot.

With an AM3 CPU you would need a new motherboard.
With any other socket CPU you would need a new motherboard, and possibly a new CPU.

Currently, DDR2 is better for most systems anyway.

Hey! I just bought Asus P6T mobo, with Core i7 920 and 4GB DDR3 1600MHZ XMS3 DHS Memory. The problem is here, I was about to start to put the memory in their places but, I saw a warning sign, that tells me: According to Intel CPU SPEC, DIMMs with voltage may damage the CPU permanently. We recommend you install the DIMMs with the voltage setting belov 1.65V. I don't know what does this mean but could you tell me? And the voltage level thing in these memories is 1.8.

Thanks for your help. Fleshpound.
 

A:Asus P6T and Corsair DDR3 1600MHZ XMS3 DHS Memory

The voltage shown in the memory specs is the the reccomended maximum voltage to be used with the memory.
The actual memory voltage used is controlled by BIOS and motherboard settings and since ASUS is aware of the Intel limitations, it will be less than that.
The Intel warning is a cover-our-rearend statement. It just means the CPU is designed to run with this voltage or less and that if you "overclock" your system your warranty is void.

A:Ram memory shows a difference..

They are the same, just expressed differently. Don't try to make any alterations anywhere, it is perfectly OK.
Some folks consider 1GB = 1000MB, others do it correct and use 1GB = 1024MB.
As the system uses some memory for itself, sometimes it shows less than what you actually have.

Can someone tell me the difference b/w PC2100r and PC2100u?
 

A:Solved: Memory difference?

The "u" stands for unbuffered. The other version will be buffered or registered.

Buffering helps with systems that have large amounts of memory like on a server. Both should work well on most home systems though I have heard that some AMD CPU's require Buffered ram. not sure on that though.

I am looking to get a USB flash memory dongle here but I am not sure which one to buy.

Can I ask, what is the difference, if any, between them?

The prices seem to vary a bit, is this a quality thing?

I want to back up some photos but more importantly to do a regular back up of work files, like written documents and images that I may use again for work in the future.

Do not want to back up with Drive or something similar online.

A:USB Flash Memory - What's the difference

Quality is definitely a thing. Cheap ones tend to be very slow and don't last nearly as long.

Generally if something is branded with a movie/tv-show it's not going to be a very good USB stick.

Generally you want to buy one that states what speeds you get from it as that guarantees quality. Makes sure it's USB 3.0 (or 3.1 if they exist yet) and has at least 50MB/s write speeds.

i know there are video cards that have 128 mb memory that are better then video cards with 256 mb memory.

so what difference does the memory make?

If u play a game like doom 3 (i know is not out yet), would difference a card make if it were the same spec card but one had 128 mb and other had 256 mb.

The reason i am asking this is because i have a geforce 2 64 mb and i looking to spend about 200 $ on a new video card by the time doom 3 comes out so i can play that game with a decent setting.

Hi all,

I got to notice that some digital devices (particularly MPx players; 3<x<10), have this issue. Accessing the memory size from the device gives a different result from doing the same task from a system when the device is connected to it.

Could it be the firmware? Or what can be responsible? And what can be done?

Help wanted. Thanks in advance!
 

A:Difference in Memory size report

What memory size? Your system has the same memory under all circumstances and it never changes. Sometimes the video memory is included in a number and sometimes not.

I am going to buy a new HD for my PC (probably one ATA 133, 120 GB, 7200 rpm), and I would like to have some help about one doubt I have: Is there sensible difference in real world between HD's with 2MB OR 8 MB memory cache ?? I like to play racing games, so my question is if there is some performance gain using HD with 8 MB Buffer ...
Here, in Brazil, the Hd's with 8MB Memory cache are around 25% more expensive. Does it worth to pay more to get it??
Thanks a lot in advance for any help!!

I just downloaded the program, CPU-Z, and it shows that I have a memory frequency of 141.6MHz and FSBDR ratio of 3:4. I was wondering if this is good or bad? I know the memory frequency may be high because I have overclocked the FSB in the BIOS.

Also....
CAS# Latency is 2.5 Clocks. RAS# to CAS# Delay is 3 Clocks. RAS# Precharge is 3 Clocks & Cycle Time (Tras) is 6 Clocks. Everything look good?

Btw, I have two sticks of Mushkin 512 PC2100 DDR.
I think its best to match the FSB and memory, so the ratio is same and is it the lower the better on all clocks? How do I change it? I believe that when I overclocked in the BIOS, there was an option that changed my overall multiplier (P4 = o/c to 2.12ghz = 100x20, mine is now 106x20) which I think changes the MEMORY and CPU Mhz...how do I make the ratios same?

If your machine supports dual-channel, the odd number of modules will result in a reduced memory bandwidth. Your application mix will determine how significant that is.

Hello,

Im new here and consider myself reasonably knowledgeable about pc hardware. Hope things wont get too complicated.

Yesterday I've upgraded my memory from 8 to 16 gb. I know that timings are important when adding memory to an existing module, the same goes for voltage. But when I checked my specs after installing it, I noticed different JDEC clock speeds available to the new module. However the 800mhz speeds show the exact same timings

The question is: Will this cause problems?

Hi Guys,

Just a quick question... the differerence between DDR 1,2 and 3.... in terms of pin placement on the motherboard? and am i correct in saying there is no motherboard that supports 2 different types of RAM? also... i wanted to find out the different speeds of RAM eg: 400MHZ,660MHZ 1333MHZ etc.. does that change the compatibility with the motherboard? For example, DDR2 400MHZ is installed can you insert DDR2 800MHZ and it will work? and if so will it work together with the 400 or must you have the same speed with all your RAM?
 

A:Difference between DDR, DDR2 and DDR3

There is no reason to post two identical threads.

DDR1 is 184 pin, while DDR2 and DDR3 are both 240 pin, so some motherboards support both DDR2 and DDR3.
If the speed is not supported by the motherboard, it will revert to the highest supported speed.
All RAM will run at the speed of the slowest module. In theory, it should work; I wouldn't count on it.

- Asus: Memory Clock: 2250MHz

It seems that I've been getting low memory issues ever since upgrading to Win10, but I'm not 100% certain if thats the issue. I thought about uprading to 16gb ram, but I'd like to know if theres some other fix for this. I can't multitask as I used to be able to. Sometimes problems occur just running 8 tabs on chrome and a game(Blade and Soul). The numbers just don't seem to add up.

A:High Memory Usage/ Low Memory Popup on Win10 8gb Laptop

Hello svader55 Welcome to the Ten Forums!

On the first impression I would have to suspect the problem is with the upgrade itself where you might end needing to see a Clean Install of 10. First however you can try a few things out to see if this is only a minor glitch. On an older 7 model by HP the upgrade seen last summer was a disaster waiting to happen which I had enticipated and saw an immediate clean install to follow! Of after going from the 32bit 7 Home Premium to 10 Home x86 I subsequently changed that with a second fresh install the 64bit Windows.

The initial tool would be the System File Checker you would run from the Command prompt(admin) option when right clicking on the Start button. You simply scroll down to that option to see the new window open up. At the dos like prompt you then simply type in "sfc /scannow" and press enter to get the tool underway.

The tool will then scan all the important system files and if finding one or more corrupt or missing will often be able to replace them but not all unfortunately from cab files tucked away on the local drive. With previous versions the rec for having the Windows dvd in the driver was made in case the SFC had to extract something from the Windows media there if the problem was more involved. This is why the suggestion for the possible need to see a fresh clean install of 10 is being made here.

Unfortunately buggy upgrades are all too common regardless of which version is being upgraded over. But you likely saw the option for 10 in the 10 app? or in the Windows Updates perhaps? if not seeing 10 downloaded separately. The appearance from the images you provided suggests the problem is the memory being mapped out to hardwares while that first item being a 32bit app taking upto almost 1tb seems a bit high.

Hello,

I've been experiencing sluggish performance, browsers were laggy and non responsive after having many tabs.

I found that the solution to improve performance was to change Virtual Memory values and disable "paging file size" for all drives.

Now the computer performance is amazing, everything responds properly but now I'm getting error messages of low memory and getting crashes. A few minutes ago the computer crashed to a black screeen.

Here are the values I have right now in Virtual Memory, what else should I do to stop these crashes? I already tried a few different values but the problem still persists.

Any suggestions?

Hi mesohamster welcome to SevenForums

First I recommend uninstalling Avast then we could go from there . Using Revo Uninstaller

Click on the app inside RevoUnistaller and choose uninstall
Click on Yes to agree you want to uninstall
If you get the builtin Uninstaller for the app use that and once you're done click Finish
Back inside RevoUninstaller click on Next
Let RevoUninstaller scan for left over registry keys . Click on Select All and choose Delete .
Once done click on Next.
Let the left over files and folders be locates then Click on Select All then click Delete then Next and you should be done .

Restart PC

I downloaded a game called Rohan Blood feud a month ago and every so often this common error comes up after clicking my character after I log in. memory 0x77 at referenced memory cannot be read. the error itself is hit and miss, sometimes it happens sometimes it doesn't. I have narrowed it down to three possibilities. Game guard the hacking prevention system built into the game is not compatible,not having enough ram to process the game request at the time i try to run the game or There might be an issue with AMD catalyst control system being out of date and is interfering with my game. Is there anything I can do besides uninstalling and re-installing the game? I have done this 3 times and it is only a temporary fix since the error is back after 2 game plays.

I have a computer I built and used since 2010 running well. It has two matched 4GB sticks of DDR3 for a total of 8GB. I have two remaining slots (empty) for ram on the motherboard to add more ram. Do I need to find the exact same memory as the ram I am currently using or does it matter?

A:Question regarding Dual Channel Memory- Mix or Match Memory

If you can get the same kit again it would be best but if you can get a kit with the same timings, speed, and voltage you should be okay. You should use cpu-z to find out your kit model and timings it supports. CPU-Z | Softwares | CPUID At the moment your two current sticks should in the white slots.

Hello all New member here I have had an issue with my PC since I quot upgraded quot to windows earlier this year that is driving me batty Unfortunately I upgraded the hardware motherboard CPU and RAM at the same time so I can't rule out a hardware issue completely The issue stuck around despite a total hard disk wipe and reinstall from scratch I'm a relative noob as far as this sort of troubleshooting and I'm really not sure how to proceed My normal modus operandi has been to simply wipe and start over if I ran into serious enough issues but that did not work this time always Leak. runs Memory of Probable System memory out Months of google searches have not really yielded any progress so I thought it could not hurt to ask here So the problem Basically the longer the system runs the more memory it uses Eventually it freezes up and itf you let it alone long enough after this starts it will finally reboot itself Doing Probable Memory Leak. System always runs out of memory anything intensive hastens the process of memory drain basically the harder it works the faster it happens If I am using the PC hard it only takes a couple hours to Probable Memory Leak. System always runs out of memory burn through all GB If I am away for days with nothing but background processes running it takes a few days but it eventually crashes and reboots The only thing that might be slightly out of the ordinary for most users is the fact that I use the PC as my TV and DVR through Windows Media Center and the use of a Silicondust HD Homerun Prime cablecard tuner Other than that it's pretty basic stuff on my PC I don't do any gaming these days and usually the hardest workout the machine gets is downloading large files like movies I will try to attach a few snapshots of task manager etc as I gather you folks can make more sense of them than I can If you need anything else please do not hesitate to ask I am sick of rebooting my PC all the time to avoid crashes Any and all help would be sincerely appreciated Alan

My boy's desktop has a low memory warning problem that is a little different than some of the other threads I've read here.  He gets the warning when he plays SWTOR.  Task manager shows about 290 MB of memory in use during play with no leaking.  He has an SSD as the system drive with 140 GB free out of about 240 GB.  After going on the Microsoft boards, I tried to fix the problem by resetting the virtual memory settings to "automatically size paging file" and even a custom setting but the settings won't save following a restart and it always comes back saying that no virtual memory has been allocated.  The PC runs Win8 32 bit with a Core DUO E8400 and 4GB of RAM on the MB.  I'd be grateful for any suggestions/help.

6 months ago,i upgraded memory from the factory installed 64 to 256. It works,etc.

Is there any additional tweaking/ajustments i can do? i read something with virtual memory setting could be done for one thing.
 

A:After upgrading memory,its works,Virtual memory Tweaking Now?

Unless you have Win95 you likely donít want to go messing with your virtual memory. And even in that case it is the vcache you would be more interested in tweaking. Win98 and higher handles memory well.

If you watch your system monitor and are sure you arenít using your virtual memory you might do the ConservativeSwapfileUsage=1 INI tweak. Unless you are doing graphics, video editing or something RAM intensive you likely arenít using the virtual memory and the tweak wonít slow your computer. It doesnít speed it up, it just stops needless writes to the hard drive during idle time. Information if you want to do that: http://www.aumha.org/a/memmgmt.htm

Donít let anyone talk you into Cacheman or any of those Mem/RAM/Turbo/Boost type programs. They were written for Win95 and counterproductive in anything since.

Hey everyone. I keep getting this dang error "0x73dd11c7 referenced memory at 0x00000004 The memory could not be read" then it tells me to click OK to terminate the program. I figured asking you guys here at bleepingcomputer because you guys are excellent at helping others with computer problems. Steps already done: I used something called Registry Easy and then fixed up from there and also made a backup. It does not seem like anything has changed though kinda slightly made the computer faster and reset my homepages. I am using Windows XP 2000 Service Pack 2

It also depends, what kind of and how many extensions you have.
Some of them might be causing it, try to temporarily disable all.
Finding a cause can be difficult, you can try CleanMem Free.

A:Troubleshooting Excessive Memory Use (Memory Leak?) after playing vid.

Have you looked in Chromes own task manager to see if you can find a tab using excessive ram?

Using the Task Manager in Chrome Browser

See if indeed closing the video tab actually deletes the listing from the task manager perhaps?

A:RAM fails Windiag Memory test, crashes Memory 86+

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Your problem is almost certainly caused by faulty ram.

The fact that memtest86+ is reporting ram errors, means your ram is bad.

One of your minidumps crashes with memory corruption.

Try one new stick of ram, and test your system.

The other three minidumps crash with Windows system file errors, but this can be attributed to faulty ram.

Also, one minidump crashes at SYMEvent.SYS=Symantec Event Library.

This is a known issue on some machines/configurations.

Turning off the live updates can sometimes solve this. Otherwise try using a different security product.

Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

I am currently using MemClean and it not only decreases my memory use but it also seems to improve the general performance of Windows and apps.

Is this really the case or is it just my impression?

A:Do Memory Cleaners improve the memory usage and performance?

It is just your impression.

Windows 7 has very good memory management on it's own and has no need for and will not benefit from any third party memory "cleaners", "optimizers", "boosters", etc. The only very questionable benefit is to make the numbers in Task Manager more attractive to those who do not understand them.

David Solomon and Mark Russinovich, both well recognized Windows experts, mentioned these programs in the Microsoft publication "Windows Internals", sixth edition. They were very critical and did not recommend these programs.

After having a busy couple of months building computers for friends and others I noticed that after construction problems seemed to centre around computers that had two sticks of memory The memory I installed was the solutions memory good but Possible errors where occur is anyway memory same two sticks ordered at the same time eg two meg sticks In one case not yet knowing that the memory may be to blame and going through the endless process of component substitution I replaced the two meg sticks with a matched pair from my own computer my computer has dual channel RAM and I had two matched sets installed gig total Problem solved I also noticed that memory read errors disappeared from my home computer at the same time windows server gigabyte KNXP Ultra gig Prescott I had also noted that memory read errors never occur after my computer has been switched on for a Possible solutions where memory is good but memory errors occur anyway day or two eg it has been constantly on for weeks now and no memory read errors after the first few hours So here is my conclusion for single channel RAM always get matched pairs anyway and enjoy a crash free environment For dual channel with more than one set of RAM try swapping one pair Alternatively try leaving the computer on continuously You can switch the monitor off and leave the computer idling or better still donate your spare cycles to a good cause eg SETI In Sum The faster the RAM the more critical the matching even in single channel systems Leaving the computer on may in itself facilitate matching for whatever reason eg components eventually reach the same temperature Kind regards Robert Karl Stonjek nbsp

I recently did a new install of Windows 7 64 bit. I noticed windows showed 4Gb of ram (2.75Gb usable). I read tons of articles after googling this and tried several options to free up some more ram.

I have 2 options in bios to change memory remapping over 4GB. S/W and H/W.

When I enable S/W remapping, windows boots everything seems fine but I get a crackling sound from speakers. Bios shows 4Gb (3Gb usable). Windows shows 4Gb ram (3.0 available).

When I enable H/W remapping, windows BSOD during boot, but bios shows 4Gb ram and all 4 Gb available.

So, does anyone have any suggestions as to how to eliminate the BSOD after enabling H/W memory remapping? Try installing Windows 7 again? I read some people saying bump up the voltage on ram perhaps? I've never done any overclocking, but would try if someone thinks it may help.

I've tried several different setting. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:4Gb memory (2.75 Gb usable) memory remapping in bios causes BSOD

This sounds almost like a bios memory compatibility issue to me.
Have you tried checking the ram in both modes using memtest?
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Since the memory is obviously the center of this I think it bares testing.
Keep in mind you'll need several passes each way with memtest to get any kind of accurate result and will take some time

I've been looking at the Surface Pro and other tablet/laptop convertible machines fitted with Win 8. The top-end models usually offer only flash memory in stead of a hard drive. The standard 128 GB flash memory available seems hopelessly inadequate for storing Win 8, a full range of programs and a decent amount of data. Most of these thin, expensive models have only one or two USB ports available. Where must the necessary memory come from? Must an external hard drive be carried along? Nothing wears a USB port out more quickly than a fairly heavy external device such as a hard drive dangling from it in mobile situations.

A:Lack of needed memory on flash memory Win 8 machines

You can add extra storage with SD cards on some of them. It's not ideal but better than nothing I guess.

I'm running two OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 64Bit, where I'm encountering bad performance, and Windows 7 32Bit which runs smoothly.

I'm not sure if it's really a memory damage or something else. I upgraded lately my CPU from Intel Pentium 4 506 to Intel Core 2 Duo 7500 (compatible with my mobo), when the BSOD appeared again and again.

Thanks in advance!

A:Windows Memory Diagnostic Reports Memory Problems

Hello TheHero2012, welcome to SF!

For better mem testing use:
Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.
Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

When downloading anything at all, be it games, music, videos, etc, System and Compressed Memory starts to use up more and more memory, which obviously sounds normal, and might seem fine.
However, if I have not restarted my computer at all, around the 10gb download mark, my computer starts running extremely slow, while System and Compressed Memory starts maxing out Memory usage on Task Manager.
Any help is appreciated, as I obviously have not found anything in regards to this myself. It is possible I just haven't looked hard enough, but regardless!
