Modern games require more and more memory. 8 GB is the standard requirement for many games. New World MMORPG is no exception. The game has very nice graphics and requires players to have at least 8GB of RAM for a comfortable experience. This amount of memory should be sufficient in most cases.
If your computer meets all the other requirements, including the graphics card and processor, 8 GB of memory is more than enough. Yes, it will be fully occupied by the game, but in most cases the game will run without problems. But you may have to use a few tricks to make the experience even more enjoyable.
Proper launch of the game
There is one important thing to keep in mind: Windows also consumes memory. For example, my Windows 10 eats 2 GB right after it boots up. A simple calculation shows that there is only 6 GB left for the game. New World will continue to run in this scenario as the developers know it as well.
But everything changes if you open another program, such as a web browser or image editor, before launching the game. Google Chrome with many open tabs can eat up 2 GB of memory and even more. Windows plus Chrome can take up a total of 4 GB, and as you can see, in this case, only 4 GB remains for the game and the attempt to play will fail. You will encounter a black screen glitch or some other kind of error.
You can see glitches even if you close all programs before starting the game. Many programs continue to store cache files in RAM for faster loading, even after they are fully closed…
Therefore, you should follow these simple tips:
- Turn off autoloading for any programs you don't really need. This will free up some memory that can be crucial.
- Only start playing New World after restarting or rebooting. Don't play the game after working with other programs. Restart the computer; give him some time to load up all the essentials and have fun. This way, you will maximize the potential of your RAM.
As you can see, these tips are very easy to follow. But they can help you get away from potential problems and glitches.
