Did you disable virtual memory and reboot?

I hope you disabled the automatic tab unloading in chrome:config, otherwise this wouldn't make much sense. Also make sure you mostly visit sites with no push notifications à-la node.js, otherwise the TCP ports become exhausted. If the hard connection limit in the browser doesn't kick in earlier.
Try to impress us next with Windows 10 in a ramdisk. That should beat those pesky M.2 SSDs.

Maybe it's stupid.. but maybe it's not problem with chrome but with ssd? Was chrome caching fully disabled on that test? Or just create ram disk of... 50 gb, move chrome profile on it and test it.
(Can't understand why browsers even caching something when it's much faster to download it again (with 20+ mb of speed) than looking on .. very slow notebook hard drive and freezing whole system)

It would be interesting to see, if ubuntu or some other linux distro would handle the tabs better!

Linus, why didn't you guys just get a hold of a couple of 1 TB RAM sticks. Sure, they are about 20k a piece, but in reality, I am guessing you paid quite a bit for for all those 128 GB sticks too. Average price I saw was for $1500 a piece.

Google Chrome is pure unoptimized shit just like Windows OS. Facts don’t lie! Great video by the way

Chrome discards the tab when not in usage and reloads on focus.. Did you turn that off?

What about showing software that can actually benefit from insane memory amounts?

@Stefan Glasenhardt I can't think of any non server application to use that either. That's why i'd like to hear about which applications actually can use it or even need it. Is there any workstation task for 2 TB datasets?
Stefan Glasenhardt
Stefan Glasenhardt - Před 2 dny
There is barely software which needs this amount of RAM. I made calculations for my master-thesis on a server with 2TB RAM. Even when i tried to max out the RAM i only managed to fill about 1TB. Fun thing was that my whole data (About 200GB of genomic data) completely fitted into the RAM.

To max out RAM just declare pointer variable in C in a while loop.
