The latest Apple Mac Pro can be equipped with up to 1.5TB of large-capacity memory. So what can the memory do? Twitter user, Jonathan Morrison did a crazy experiment, using Google Chrome on his Mac Pro, constantly opening new tabs, and seeing memory usage soaring.
A big feature of Chrome is that it eats memory very much because it uses a multi-process parallel approach. In this experiment, when Jonathan Morrison opened more than 6000 tabs at the same time, Chrome consumed 857.34GB of memory.

By this time, Chrome has become unresponsive and seems to hang.
After a long wait, Chrome survived tenaciously. Although it no longer adds tabs or even does nothing, it starts to consume memory madly and eventually exceeds 1.4TB.
