Low RAM usage vs high virtual memory usage!

Hi,. 

 

Recently i noticed that my games are using high pagefile or virtual memory instead of regular RAM. 

 

Typically in multiplayer games and open world games, ram usage shiuld be high like BO4, BF5, CoH2. 

 

I attached screenshot of BF5 stats, it shows that its using 7GB ram and 10GB of virtual memory, although on youtube the game can draw upnto 10 and 11GB of ram.? Im having bad performance and huge FPS drops and stutter. 

 

I tested the ram using multiple benchmarks and windows utility and all is fine. 

 

I have i7 4790

RX 580 @1480mhz

16GB DDR3  on dual channel. @1600mhz 

 

Page file size is default (windows determined). 

 

Shadow of the tomb raider can use upto 15GB of virtual memory. 

 

I have 2 SSD, one for system and one for games. IMG_20181120_225557.thumb.jpg.be9971cac9f992bafb74bb4a571b94d0.jpg

Every thing seems perfectly normal for Windows Determined Pagefile, it's all cache.

 

If you feel your in game performance is broken, it's probably driver related or even OS stuff make sure you don't have too much bloatware and junk running on side/background and DDU'ing in safe mode to reinstall drivers fresh new never hurts.
