Too high RAM usage and problems with Adobe programs(I think it might be the RAM))

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have been having some performance problems. When I open Photoshop or Premiere RAM skyrockets to 14gbs of 16gbs installed. If I zoom a lot in the project, the program crashes and my video card is not showing in Task manager anymore... (I re-enable it in Device Manager) The issue might be the GPU, a friend gave it to me. He had some mining rigs, he said he didn't press it too hard.

It might be the GPU, but why the high RAM usage? Maybe both are bad. When I play games at 1440p 100fps~ High settings, I have no problems.

My Opera browser has 6-8 tabs open usually.

The problem is happening with other lighter programs too

 

Ryzen 5 3600(boosted to 4.2, with 2.9 voltage)

GTX 1070 OC Strix and 16gigs(2x8)

Corsair Veng Pro

Asus Prime x-470 Pro

 

If someone has encountered similar behavior and has some answers or has some ideas, it would help. :)

What iCue is taking 4.5% of the cpu.. Also you should try Mozilla firefox. I don't know about premiere, but it's not known for being light. Maybe get 32gb of rams instead?

There are four types of lies:

 

Lies,

damned lies

statistics

and

"I didn't press the gpus too hard in my mining rig"

 

But you mention in your post Adobe programs, but everything you show is Opera-related.

What happens if you shut down Opera and other unneeded programs and just open PS (BTW, which version?)

 


So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

I read that iCue does that, not uncommon. On my laptop I did a lot of big projects on 8gb, I dont think I lack capacity :(

Hahaha you are right :D 

The thing is he has 2 gpus left that he uses for work and both of them are fine. Maybe he gave me the bad one... Not intentionally, he is my closest friend. 

 

I will test with Premiere and Photoshop

Not always (well, at least not in PS case, I can't speak for Premier)

Case in point: I am a photographer, and have just opened LightRoom and PhotoShop (CS5) and with my RAW files of 600 images from my last studio session open, both LR and PS consume 562MB and 86MB respectively.

Mt entire system  is chewing up 3.75GB (out of 32GB) which is just slightly more than @kris_r8 Opera is using by itself. Something is way out of whack with Opera

Right now things are fine. But I will experiment with Mozila to see if the problem persists. On my laptop, that was entry level laptop with GTX 1050, i5 8th gen and 8gb Ram, I had no problems with Premiere and Photoshop open at the same time... Sometimes After effects as well, but that was its limit :D Never used it long with all 3 programs running at the same time. 

 

I am using Adobe 2019 versions.

 

I will follow up with more info when something occurs. Thanks for the fast response ;)
