      Description

      I have noticed after the recent launcher update after I played earlier today, the amount of RAM being used has increased alot. This hurts especially in modded minecraft. On further research, I noticed that the launcher has a new update called "Enable dynamic content caching" Which probably is the cause of this issue. Could someone please elaborate it's function and add a way to manually disable it? It hurts streaming performance and used almost 9GB RAM (as seen in task manager) during modded minecraft play (1.12.2, which normally took within the assigned range of 4GB RAM)

      Update: I ran minecraft later after waking up an now it's reached a peaked at consuming 11GB RAM and it is showing no signs of stopping..oh it almost hit 12 GB :''( The pic I shared is of my task manager while running the said mods.

      Another Update: Without Shaders installed, It hovers over 8-9 GB(for still having 17 mods in it ) of RAM Used.
      But on the contrary doesn't use much ram(5.5GB for 200+ mods) while playing a modpack off of twitch?? How ??
