bf4 uses around 4gb then 2gb from other programs and OS, on my rig at least.
Yes I checked it and it was only BF4 running with two tabs on firefox and the HWmonitor
Could it be a windows service?

what is your ram usage, just after you power up the computer, before opening anything.

Got this last week here are my initial thoughts.
Quote:
I bought this game last week just so I could see if it was as bad as people are saying, and because a friend kept on bugging me, and it is only $50 so I went for it.

The most glaring issue with the game at the moment, to me, is the netcode. Now, I really don't mind the aspect of me shooting a guy and him shooting me and we both end up dying, I can laugh that off. However, when i get hit once, lay down behind cover then die AFTER I have laid down that is what is frustrating to me.

From about 20 hours of play time I can say this is an entertaining game, which can give you quite a few good laughs, who doesn't love to counter a knife? But this game is nowhere near other games (such as Counter Strike or TF2) in terms of being able to deliver a consistent or competitive platform.

Still seems like the game has some wonky performance issues under certain scenarios, with goofy things like flickering or invisible textures, don't ask me why I still have to jump over a wall that has been utterly destroyed, but I think why people get so bothered is because this game has a ton of potential.

I am running on my sig rig and having trouble keeping my min FPS above 120, should I just buttom my settings out? I would like to stay above 120 so that I can run lightboost ,my current settings see from around 80-140 fps pending on what is going on with a mixture of med/high and little to no AA.

While I admit to being an EA hater I can appreciate this game as a very casual (compared to the CS that I play) and light shooter, which is very refreshing to me.

High ram usage could be a memory leak…some think the game has that issue as well.

That's the usage for the entire system.

Take a screenshot of the "Processes" tab in Task Manager.

The x64 client should be using around ~3GB at most.

"5GB max"
Really depends on your system.

For me it fluctuates between 2-4GB
