As an observation those results are indicative to what I get in my tests although I fly mostly Gaz low and fast within Las Vegas on NTTR* map and Caucasus map in built up areas in VR so DCS has many objects, buildings etc to manipulate and render.

I think it's fair to say DCS's memory management has really improved over early 2.5.x releases and even looking at it now it's foot print seems to sit below 10GB which with windows etc is kinda pushing 16GB systems. I have run with and with out pagefile and for me there really isn't much difference so I just let Windows do it's thing.

I also think maybe DCS could be more adaptive to systems with more RAM and VRAM for example if I jump onto a MP server I get to use pretty much 10.something GB of VRAM wheres DCS only uses about 6GB in single player.

Win10Pro, 64GB DDR4, 1080Ti 11GB i75930@4.7Ghz.

* Another observation, I find the NTTR map to be by far the best performance over the other maps.
Control is an illusion which usually shatters at the least expected moment.
Gazelle Mini-gun version is endorphins with rotors. See above.

Currently rolling with a Asus Z390 Prime, 9600K, 32GB RAM, SSD, 2080Ti and Windows 10Pro, bu0836x and Scratch Built Pedals, Collective and Cyclic and Rift CV1.
