Memory eaten up

I have a project that requires like 20+ modules. When I open vs 2013, it eats 2G ram. sometimes even more. Does NTVS load all modules into ram?

I have the exact same issue, ever since I've installed NTVS RC it has gotten worse.
generating a mean.js project with yeoman generator, then creating a new node project from existing code in VS2013 Ultimate, Update 4 - eats up to 2.9 gigs of ram on my machine (Win 8.1 Pro x64)
I've also suspected that it must be the deeply stacked npm dependencies, I've actually found that using fenestrate to level out the nesting level of dependencies does reduce the RAM to around 2.3 gigs used.

This also makes the overall performance of VS very poor - if ReSharper is enabled i experience occasional freezes, suggest and intellisense almos never popup and after each save it takes quite a while until the files are linted and feedback is received from jsHint (using Web Essentials).

After updating to RC 1 I see myself forced to switch to Atom, at least for the moment, until this is fixed. NTVS had some bugs, and I can understand that, but after last update it's unbearable to work it.

I really hope this gets fixed fast, I really love what you guys did, and I hate leaving the comfort of my ide, where I spend so many hours of each day, when I have to work on a node project :(
