Why do a lot of people pretend they need more than 8gb of RAM?

Then don't say s*** about it.

There's a reason why it's #3 on Steam by concurrent players despite not being an esports game (And that the company is desperately trying to make it one).

You said it was unoptimized.

But it is poorly optimized. Good game, but poorly optimized. It'll get better, that's why it's in early access.

I'm at 6GB average just opening tabs and watching videos on a daily basis, so with 16 GB I don't have to close tabs just to play a game.

Is that it? I have like 40 tabs of chrome opened among other things and only have 5GB of RAM usage

Did you miss the fact he's literally running PUBG (Tslgame.exe) AND streaming (OBS.exe) at the same time, when that screenshot was posted? That's 6GB of his RAM right there.

Hell when I run PUBG it can and has hit 6GB of RAM on it's own.

Sounds like bad optimization


A rare post where Fade is correct. Also lol at Judgmenl's post. That guy gets super triggered whenever anyone makes any criticism about a game he likes. PUBG being a good game or not has no relevance to the fact that it is an unoptimized pile.

Also the more RAM you have, the more the system is gonna use. So saying "I have Win7 using 8GB alone now!!!" means absolutely nothing. I have Win7 right now with 30 chrome tabs open and a video game running and I'm not even using 5GBs.

Folks don't need to do either much less both of those tasks to go over 8GB either. I hit 87% RAM usage yesterday after having the Path of Exile client up for 6 or 7 hours and not having restarted Firefox in a day or so.

And I'm using Windows 7 with no games up, and I'm sitting at 7434MB or so used. Just four Firefox windows with maybe 20-25 loaded tabs and another 40-50 unloaded tabs using up 1.6GB, and my normal assortment of "always on" software. Visual Studio, Outlook, Notepad++, Glyph, Excel, etc.

Hell, my PC's up time is up to 18 days, 17 hours so I'm sure that has some effect on things

All sorts of things out there make the "oh you only need" argument a bigger crock of crap than when Peter Pan took a dump in Hook's nemesis' taxidermied corpse.
