How have I got less RAM used on system with 1GB RAMdisk?

Recommended Posts

I noticed this system I'm setting up for my brother is only using 2610MB and as it has a 1GB DataRAM RAMDisk loaded, that means Windows 7 x64 Ultimate (plus the programs I left running) are only using 1.5GB.

Yet my own system, which doesn't have a RAMDisk loaded, is using 2719MB with much less programs running.

The main difference between the systems is my brother's is using the onboard HD4250, utilisiing 512MB of system RAM (this is taken out of the equation before the RAM usage shown), whereas mine has a 2GB HD6950. Would this make my system use over 1GB more RAM?

Hi

Another useful tool to add to the arsenal ;)

I've PM'd the links to you as requested.

I rebooted the X4 PC and managed to get it down to 1952MB with most apps shutdown, which is 767MB better but still the other PC would only be 1610MB without the RAMDisk and that's with a bunch of apps running.

RAMMap uses about 600MB just when loaded (increases to about 1GB when making the dump), so that pushes it up to 2570MB

Here's the Ste-PC with RAMMap running
