    I have a dual core processor, and noticed that in mid 2018 discord started to consume more resources, and I barely hear what the people are talking.
    Discord definitely needs a LITE version.

    Google for ripcord that just works and is lite version. doesn't use GPU or isn't bloated, very small and efficient. I like it. Discord just doesn't care about this kind of version and thats why the Ripcord gave birth.

    Fact of the matter is, Discord USED TO BE "Discord LITE", it's why I started using it. But then the bloatware creep happened.

    I get that they want to make profit off of it, and power to them, but the current idea blows.

    Just charge for a stripped down version with no ads and no "I want to be steam when I grow up" functions. Just the chat/voice functions. And I will buy it.

    They either need a LITE version, or they need to add options to disable things we don't use. Like disabling the store page, things like that. I am using a Surface Pro 3, and sitting IDLE with discord open makes the fan kick on. People saying "use the browser version" are annoying because it's harder and slower to navigate via the browser. The actual discord app works better for right clicking to delete or get things you need, where in the browser you can't. We need a LITE version that is just a basic text and talk app. PLEASE DISCORD.

    The bloat is the main reason I hate Discord. A bunch of chat rooms should never use this much RAM and CPU. It's ridiculous that it even needs a splash screen.

    your systems are not "low end" a "low end" pc in 2019 should have around 8gb of ram, knowing that. a mear 800mb cap out of memory is hardly worth getting stressed over, however if your having issues with your gaming, find appearance tab and disable hardware acceleration then restart discord to remove its lag generating effect from your games. if that does not work then your cpu/mobo/ram amount in some combination render your computer out of date for modern games and not low end. sorry to be the bringer of bad news :(

    Thing is, it is not 800 MB of RAM, it goes 1.25 1.5GB even 2GB has been reported while it should use a mere hundred or two ... and Discord does not clean its cache either. I have opted to delete Discord due to the devs failing to address rampant RAM and HDD use. 

    One's OS needs some RAM, open a mail client, open a browser, open discord ... and pretty soon one is pushing that default 4GB - 8 GB of RAM before even touching a game.

    I agree 100% with the OP.

    Discord is the superior VoIP application; however, maybe are deterred because of the intense hardware requirements to use Discord without even taking into account playing games while using the software.

    If the UI was stripped down, many of the unnecessary features such as the Home screen removed (text messaging channels could even be removed), and the client simply was only able to join existing voice channels in an existing server or call - this would be all the users would need to extremely improve the player base for those who cannot financially afford high-end PCs to be able to handle the rigors of high-end gaming and discord.
