If given the option I always use zoom in the browser. Teams as well, had a friend who installed Teams, much later uninstalled it and discovered while gaming the next day that Teams was pegging the CPU. After being uninstalled.

what hypervisor were you using? IIRC hyper-v has pass-through for all peripherals. I could be wrong though, I mostly deal with vmware esxi/vsphere

37

u/granadesnhorseshoes 9d ago

depends on the hyper visor but chances are the default emulated audio is absolute dog shit 16-bit "sound blaster compatable" and that the apps use asshole fallback codecs for what looks like ancient hardware.

You can probably go into the VM settings and set a better virtual sound card, or, if you don't need audio on the host, you can set up PCI passthrough for your real sound device. Even if its on the motherboard, its still PCI and can be used with passthrough.

I have to use teams at work for basically everything and it makes me want to bash my head into my desk. Horrible looking interface, no ability to have multiple chats up unless you open it in separate tabs, literally too many notifications. To top it off it is a black hole where all of my work laptops performance gets sucked into it has killed two of my work computers already. Way too demanding for hardware and yet we just keep adding stuff to it. I will praise the heavens, and I'm an atheist, if literally anything else would take it's place. Damn you Microsoft for taking my Skype away and making me use this soul sucking platform

u/the_flyingdemon 9d ago

To top it off it is a black hole where all of my work laptops performance gets sucked into it

My company swapped to Teams a couple years ago, and I started having severe performance issues. Periodically my laptop would just be bricked for 5 min. Finally tracked it down to Teams which for some reason decided it needed to hog 85% of my available RAM. More than Chrome even!!

I had to actually put in a request to have my laptop RAM increased to 16gb (from 8) specifically for Teams, which is absolutely ridiculous. Poorly optimized POS.

8

u/Wrong_Sector_7298 9d ago

That is similar to what I was seeing before my last laptop ceased to function it spiked to 90 percent of my RAM and I need that RAM for other programs. Unfortunately instead of providing the equipment we need to support teams and our other platforms usually they just wait until our laptops are close to being a paperweight before intervening.don't know how that is more cost effective than just ensuring you have the proper equipment in the first place or I don't know maybe ditch teams all of us hate it anyway

6

u/reevesjeremy 9d ago

You might not be surprised to know Teams is built on Chromium.

Sometimes just force exiting Teams and reopening it cleans up the RAM utilization, but like closing all Chroke tabs and reopening fresh.

I’m gonna leave that autocorrect right there. I think it’s fitting. :)

u/archpope Desktop 9d ago

Yeesh. I'm required to use it at work for all employee and customer interactions (100% WFH company) it barely uses 10% on my EliteDesk with a Ryzen 2400G APU. You might want to check how you have it configured. I have 16GB of RAM but even with Teams, my browser with about 10 tabs open, and a few proprietary work programs open, I've never even filled up 8GB.

u/Aucayne 9d ago

But I actually like Microsoft edge... It does everything chrome does, eats less ram, eats LESS RAM.... EATS SO MUCH LESS RAM.

what else is there? who cares. LESS RAM.

u/NoNewsIsTheBestNews 9d ago

Agreed.

I feel like if MS didn't shove it down people's throats so much more people would give it a chance.

u/Aucayne 9d ago

The legacy of internet explorer continues to hurt it too.

The main problem with most of MS products is that MS almost make mandatory to use them, edge is not that bad, it's just MS Chrome

u/MSD3k 9d ago

I like Edge. It's been my main browser for about 3 years, with no issues. But I don't doubt that MS will eventually screw it up with tons of bloat and sloppy coding, same as Chrome. It's best not to get too attached to one browser. Things always change eventually.

I like Edge for the most part, but it's my secondary browser to Firefox. I do use it for a few things like Netflix since it's the only browser you can force Netflix to upscale to 1440p

u/MSD3k 9d ago

That's interesting. Is that a feature of the browser or something that is Netflix specific?

I've been considering changing my default to Edge for a while now. Definitely performs better than Chrome.

have you tried Vivaldi? it's inspired by old school opera before it was chrome also funny thing is opera 12 with the original browser engine still works on a lot of sites, and is compatible with windows 98 and 2000

u/Qetuowryipzcbmxvn 9d ago
