If you are on Windows Insiders (16288.1+) you get the new (beta) Geforce driver 387.68. I had hope this one would fix the high ram usage but it's the same like before. 99% ram usage of my 8GB ram.
This takes them ridiculously long to fix.

It's in the QA stage. It could be months.

@Serfrost Maybe you could change the thread title to something more general so we could make this thread some kind of feedback thread.

387.87 does improve the situation somewhat. Btw: this is still a beta driver for Windows Insiders.

BotW 1.3.1 (accurateShaderMul = min) / Cemu 1.10.0f
Main menu: 6GB
Loading savegame: 6.4GB
About 1h idle ingame: 597MB
Resumed gameplay after idle: 1.5GB

Finally some improvement. But seems to me like a workaround. They unload shader after a while based on usage (I guess). Hopefully this does not introduce lags when loading them again.


Hardware:
i3 7350k
GTX 1080
16 GB RAM

Windows puts unused memory into the pagefile on it's own after idling for an amount of time.

The new driver (387.87) has cut the required RAM by roughly 30~50%, however.

Wasn't thinking about that. Makes sense. I really felt like there was something off with the driver.
I think since there is now 387.92 out for non Insiders, this thread is obsolete.
