Introduction: what is virtual memory? Virtual memory is just relative to the memory we usually use. For example, if the physical memory space of the system is in the state of not making ends meet, the operating system of the computer will open up a piece of disk space on the hard disk and use it as internal memory, and this part of the hard disk space is virtual memory. Today we are going to talk about how much virtual memory settings are appropriate. Now let’s take a look with Xiaobian.
How to set virtual memory
First, let’s take a look at how to set up virtual memory.
Step 1: right click computer and select properties.
Step 2: see the “system” interface we opened, find “advanced system settings” and click it. Its position is on the left side of the interface.
Step 3: in the “system properties” interface, first switch to the “advanced” tab, and then click the “Settings” button in the Performance Options box.
Step 4: in the performance options window, select the Advanced tab, and then select change.
Step 5: remove the check “automatically manage the paging file size of all drives”, and then select a drive letter. Of course, we do not recommend putting it on the system disk. You can find a drive letter with larger space, and then customize its size. Of course, if you don’t know how much to set it to, you can set it to the following recommended value.
Step 6: in this way, the virtual memory is set. At this time, just restart the computer.
How much is the virtual memory set
If you really don’t know how much to set, set the custom size to 4605mb.
Considerations of virtual memory
1. If the hard disk space is tight, we only need to make sure that the size of the page file is not less than 3 / 4 of the physical memory. Of course, if the physical memory is large, for example, more than 512MB, the virtual memory can be disabled for a long time.
2. We can set it according to different task environment settings. For example, in some 3D game based environments, 3D games have higher requirements on CPU, graphics card and memory. At this time, if the physical memory is less than 256MB, the virtual memory can be set larger, which can improve the stability and fluency of the game.
Conclusion: after reading the above introduction about how appropriate virtual memory settings are, do you know something about them? Of course, in general, we do not need to set the virtual memory, because the system will recommend a virtual memory to you. However, if you want to play some very large 3D games, it is necessary to set the virtual memory. At that time, you can refer to the recommended virtual memory given by the game.
