Closed Chrome used all the 16GB of RAM Tags: Chrome RAM Windows 7 Last response: June 11, 2012 2:14 AM in Windows 7 Share nikorr Windows 7 Authority November 20, 2011 9:59:58 AM Chrome used all the 16GB of RAM @ 300+ tabs open. I have never thought it will happened. Now I wonder if Firefox8 would have the same use age. This is Chrome 17.0.938.0 BETA -- No slow down at all, but msg about low RAM popped up. The old C2D E6750 would buckled already, and 2600K no issue. World of difference for anyone who wants to upgrade. Best upgrade on PC u can do, fast CPU, second is SSD. Windows are running great, everything responses normal. I thought I share that.

To be fair, this PC was on for a few days and it has a a few thousand or so of the bookmarks, so I have to transfer them to FF. And add 2 extensions and open it on fresh restart. | Report abuse helpy November 20, 2011 11:21:29 AM awesome job, | Report abuse nikorr Windows 7 Authority May 23, 2012 10:38:35 PM Well, it was a Beta version and those few thousand of bookmarks were 16686. I'll try it again soon, with 5K bookmarks, after I have reduced the list : ) | Report abuse nikorr Windows 7 Authority May 23, 2012 10:39:26 PM Best answer selected by Nikorr. | Report abuse nikorr Windows 7 Authority June 11, 2012 2:14:29 AM This topic has been closed by Nikorr | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Windows 7>Chrome used all the 16GB of RAM> Related ressources: ForumShould I upgrade to 16gb ???
