I'm definitely interested with how more modern hardware deals with that game!

I did notice that Cities Skylines eats through ram and is maxed out. I was tempted to swap my ram for 24gb's worth but then realized that's like $240 worth of ram on old hardware I'm ditching in a few years. So I refrained myself. lol
On that note, I did run with both 8GB and 16GB and my few minutes of testing it seemed to scale well and not max me out in either instance. With 16GB I was getting 10GB+ of usage overall but with 8GB I wasn't cracking 7GB. It wasn't my focus of testing, just necessitated by my RAM troubles, but I didn't notice any difference at the time.

I think Windows 10 is always way better about RAM management than previous OS's so that's part of it.

I think I tried to take the corner a bit too fast!

Racing games are getting borderline lifelike at this point. The reflections on the front wing in the first shot are incredibly accurate. The faces in the crowd of the last one look like they all want to die though.

Ok, more F1 2017 screenshots. I'm getting into modding the game so I changed the ugly Mclaren livery.

Would be fine sans the purp tires.
Purple indicates ultra soft tires. Nothing you can do about it.

His overall livery sucks tho. All he did was change colours and make it look like a HAAS livery colour. No relation to Mclaren colours and the actual livery design is unchanged.

Well they were running gray and red when they were sponsored by Vodafone, I just left in the black. I can still make changes to make it look better. Overall I think it's better than the real life one but at the end of the day that's just my opinion.

My buddy noticed this in GTA V when he upgraded to 16GB. GTA uses between 10 and 11 GB. Before he upgraded, GTA used just under 7GB.

Is this due to Windows or the games themselves?
