Increasing ram usage


New Member
I've noticed hwinfo using more and more ram over time. This has been going on for quite a while, and I suspect it might be due to Nvidia graphics drivers. I use a gtx 1070, and I was on 462.07 driver, but I have seen the issue with previous drivers as well. I went back to 456.98 and the memory issue stopped.

Edit: I was testing more drivers, and the problem seems to occur with 460.xx+ drivers. I don't see any memory leak with the 457.51 driver, the last one before 460.xx.

This has already been observed and disabling monitoring of the power sensor or NVML support can mitigate the issue.
