Yuzu Memory Leak

Yuzu almost took all of my free RAM

Laptop Specs :

  • Intel Core i7-4720HQ Quad Core
  • 8 GB DDR3
  • 1 TB HDD + 8 GB Flash
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 950M 4 GB
    While my friend with weaker specs same game same setting only got 1.5gb yuzu ram usage

In order for us to provide better support, we need to see the log generated by Citra. This guide will walk you through how you can obtain the log file: How to Upload the Log File.

Yuzu will always need at least 4GB of RAM for the console’s RAM, plus the extra that’s needed for the emulation. It’s not a leak, it’s what’s needed.
This may improve in the future, but for now, make sure to have a good pagefile size.
If you see only 1.5GB of RAM use on the process, that’s Windows trying to balance RAM and pagefile.

how much is recommended pagefile size?

I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a moderator to assist.

I would say, at least 8GB, 10 or 12 would be nice. You need a good pagefile even with 16GB of RAM.

I’ll set the pagefile to 12gb,previously it was 2gb… ill report back later after test it

I still got 99% memory usage 6.2gb yuzu ram usage

Please see our system requirements on our website.
Recommended amount of RAM right now is 16 GB.

Just because an application uses a lot of RAM, does not necessarily mean there is a memory leak.

but why my friend only got 1.5gb ram usage? when i got 6-7gb ram usage

Windows managing RAM with it’s pagefile.
