GTA 5 is using more than 5GB of RAM, is this normal?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I only have 8GB in total, (system specs in sig)

 

and after running the game for only a few minutes the RAM usage maxes out at 5-6GB

 

when i tab out of the game i only have a few hundred MB of ram left, so i cant multi-task with even just a browser open in the background

 

Is this a memory leak or is this normal?

Normal, it use 7-8 GB with my 16GB system

 

Apparently i looked at cached not actually RAM usage, GTA5.exe actually used ~3GB.

This game heavily relies on cpu before anything, you need better then even the recomeded cpu...

No, it runs fine on my Phenom X6. It has nothing to do with OP's question about RAM.

Yeah my CPU usage is fine, the game is more taxing on the GPU if anything 

 

reading on other forums, people are reporting a variety of RAM usages in their system

 

not able to find a concrete answer

5 tabs open in Chrome + listening to music in Spotify + GTA 5 = 5.0-5.2 GB of RAM usage for me

Actual game RAM usage hovers around 2045MB. This is after flying from one end of the city to the other low to the ground.

I have 10GB now but before when I had 8GB I still had no problem with multiple programs open while also playing GTA V.

 

For me it's my cpu I'm runnin a GTX 970 and getting bottlenecks like crazy lol

I'm running a 970 as well and I have no problem with my CPU, and OP's is the higher-model version of mine

I would say so. Hell, Minecraft won't start for me unless I allow it to access 8GB of my RAM.

 

I wouldn't worry. Though I'm no expert to I don't really know. Lol.

if you tab out i think the game kindof pauses,cpu usage 5%

Why do you need 32GBs of RAM?

That's a normal amount, but GTA V it's self isn't using 5GB of ram. GTA V uses about 3-4GBs of ram for me. Otherwise it doesn't concern me since I have 16GB of ram in my system.

I don't think so, I have an I3, 4 gb ram and a 980 twin frozen, I still get around 40 fps on average

 

 

V The totally not a potatoanator 2000 V

- GPU - A BEASTLY MSI 980 

- M/B - I don't really know

- RAM - 1 X 8GB HyperX Fury Forgot What Speed, as the RAM component of the build

- PSU - An okish Cooler Master 650M

- CASE - The Corsair Carbide Spec - 03

- SSD - In my dreams

- HDD - Seagate 500GB HDD

And the moment you have all been waiting for.... The one thing that makes this build really wacky.. Besides the fact that I have an LGA 1155 m/b and cpu.. Is.. that the cpu is a BEASTLY i3 2100

It is no ordinary i3, it is MY i3. NO JOKE ( I AM DEAD SERIOUS) I have overclocked it to a gabilion Ghz and I don't care if you tell me it's impossible, think chuck norris would find it impossible to overclock and i3... I thought so.
