Need Apps & Games that Suck memory
« on: May 20, 2007, 12:14:50 AM »
I'm working on a new RAM related article and need your suggestions for some rather memory hungry programs.  They can either be games or applications, but they need to use lots of memory.  I will have a fair bit of RAM at my disposal under 64-bit OS.

Suggestions are more than welcome!

Beat me to it thinking window and or vista.... might be something in here to look at

I know that most software based programs like Traktor and Cool edit pro use a lot of memory... (very nice programs to play with) If you like playing with music...... some can be downloaded free but limit how long you can play....

BF2142 seems to like memory..
Most of the programs that I have looked at on Google suggest a stress test to find faulty chips. I'll keep looking.
Remember kids, if you happen to find yourself upside down and on fire, you've just discovered the meaning of "too fast".

SiSoft Sandra should be a good benchmark tool to test that ram, and it can do a burn-in as well. If you're concerned about checking the ram for errors, use memtest86.
