    When I am using my desktop computer, I have maybe 200 google chrome tabs opened. They are divided into 10 virtual desktops on Windows 10. When I have a lot of google chrome separate windows, the computer starts to slow down. Especially when they are not minimized. I have 32 GB of RAM but my Task Manager shows me only 18 GB occupied. So I think my computer does memory swapping to SSD. Why the hell is the computer slowing down when there is not full 32 GB RAM occupied? Do you think that this is a problem with RAM, or something else? My computer assembly is:
    GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1060 ARMOR 6G OCV1, 6GB GDDR5
    MOTHERBOARD: MSI X470 GAMING PLUS - AMD X470
    PROCESSOR: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
    SSD: WD Black NVMe SSD, M.2 - 500GB
    MEMORY: 2x HyperX Fury Black 16GB DDR4 3200

    Thank you for the response!

    according to this your ram is only running at 1333 mhz.you could try going into your bios and enabling xmp and set the ram at the correct speed and timings.it may not make a huge difference but is worth a try.i do,however,have the same question in mind that ssal just asked.lol

    200 Chrome tabs and you wonder why it's slow?

    Every open card must be processed! Memory is one thing, the processor is another. Surely those 200 open tabs don't damage RAM very much (since you have a lot of them), but they will slow down the processor. I think, however, that it is due to the processor, the cause of the slowdown ... Not to memory, in this case. Asking why you keep all these windows open, I don't know. Maybe you wanted to test RAM or what?
