Re: Clearing RAM app.............

You need an SSD. Virtual memory is written to and read from the hard disk, which takes a long time if you have a spinning disk. An SSD will speed up that process 100 fold for very little cost. Additional RAM would help, (16 GB is probably optimum), but the speed of reading and writing to an SSD is so much faster it is probably the best upgrade you can buy.

Even the latest i9 with 32 GB of RAM would be slow with a spinning hard drive.
