Omniverse Create 2022.3.3 High memory usage issue


I never had the following issue up till recently, but whenever I open Create, it’s taking ages to load a fresh scene, and when loaded, camera movement tends to lag without even having any assets in scene.

I have reinstalled Create, deleted the Cache, updated the graphics card drivers, restarted PC after changes etc. without any changes in performance whatsoever.

My GPU is an RTX 3060 TI with 32 GB of RAM. Attached is an image showing full usage of GPU memory too.

What could be the case please?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Ryan
Yes that does seem like the new version is consuming 100% of your vram. Not sure why it would be this high. So on a fresh windows boot, and a fresh start up of Create, with nothing open, it is using all of your vram ? The old version did not do this before ?

Hi Richard,

Yes exactly, after I restarted my windows PC and restarted Create afresh, with just the blank new project scene, it’s using half my vram and when I move the camera, the other half of my vram suddenly is used. The older versions never did this, but upon opening an older version, it started happening too. It just started happening out of the blue honestly!

Also, I do not have any other high-memory programs open too, so I’m not sure what’s causing this all of a sudden!

Hi @RyanGatt ,

Did you happened to update Nvidia graphics Driver recently ? The graphics driver could be an issue sometimes, maybe revert to your previous driver version to test it out.

Hi David, I had the old graphics driver when this happened too. I updated to see if that was the issue but was not resolved! All of this happened out of the blue as I mentioned, with everything being as it was, then I did anything you might think of to fix, like re-installations, updates, reboot etc. and it still stayed the same. I even deleted Cache and deleted unused files on my PC. I don’t know why it’s lagging this much now.
