On February 10th Twitter user Jonathan Morrison experimented with using Google Chrome on his Mac Pro, opening new tabs and running out of 1.5ter of memory. But do you think 1.5TB is the limit? On February 11th Linus Tech Tips, a well-known tech video blogger, took on a new challenge to see if Chrome could squeeze out 2TB of memory!
As for the test platform, he used a piece of gigabyte server board MZ32-AR0, prepared 16SK Hynix produced a single 128GB OF DIMM memory plug-in motherboard, THE CPU is AMD 64 core server processor.
Memory footprint shows 0% after the save machine is turned on, even after opening Chrome. Then, after opening multiple tabs, Chrome’s footprint soared, from the original 2.5GB (20 tabs) to 6GB (40 tabs) to 10GB (200 tabs), when memory was only 1%.
The blogger then frantically opened 5,000 tabs and took up 10% of the memory, but the page became so stuck that Chrome automatically refreshed all the back-office pages.
Chrome briefly stuck after opening 6,000 tabs. It is worth mentioning that the test platform memory usage has been maintained at about 10% (200GB), the CPU is only half online, but the system has no availability of the card.
Linus Tech Tips has now announced that the test was complete and ultimately failed to drain 2TB of memory, but the test proved that Chrome can make the Windows 10 card completely unusable with 200GB of content.
