— - hmm, that's really strange. When the vram is high, it's about 60-70 mbs (I have games on steam that is WELL over that). There's a decent bit going on, but I can't imagine it's anything out of the ordinary. I usually have a few tabs open on chrome, but nothing too much. The preview is generally always open as I work on it and then f4 to test new changes.
Is the cache only from my CURRENT session? Or is it a cumulative of everything I've been doing over the past however long it's been? Like I said, I NEVER had this problem with the C2 runtime. It could, of course, be coincidence, but I kind of doubt it.
yea that narrows it down, then is just your browser cache being filled. chrome has that issue a lot, mozzila not that often, but then again mozzila has other problems.
again vram and ram is not the issue here, is your caching ... meaning everytime you play something there is a space amount of data allocated to that app/execution being it copying files from one folder to another or watching a youtube clip and when u get the error"oops...snap.. you ran out of memory" the cache space allocated to what you are doing it's filled not having enough space to write and rewrite the things it needs.
the vram helps rendering images faster and showing you stuff, the ram helps processing information, caching is the space you use to download files so the ram and vram can interpret them and show it to you and that's what runs out. not the vram or ram or cpu.
to fix this you need to clear the cache on your browser, not the passwords and stuff but image cache on chrome that is history/ clear browsing data/cached images and files,[ hosted data <- here you might lose saved progress on some games or netflix accounts etc)] the last one isn't that important, but "cached images and files" is what will occupy most of the memory when u run out of it u get the error.
also, if that doesn't fixes it it might be the browser caching profile got corrupted somehow then u need to rename it but u will lose all the data u had amassed so far as it will consider ur browser newly installed on the machine.
here is a tutorial on how to fix this, sorry for the weird suspicious site is the fastest thing i could find in 1 minute of google search.
chrome memory issue tutorial fix
i don't recommend the last one unless you know what you are doing.
i periodically erase my caching image memory thing everytime it hits around 2.0gb around then i get the error, atm im at 650mb or so... not using the browser so often (i laid off the kinki stuff if you know what i mean xD ) as i used to.
