Same amount of memory usage here with SP2 beta as with SP1, i did notice the resource manager wasn't working either for some reason or another.

Uninstalled the beta till final release.

Omgz my download speeds are amazing getting 500mb/s for SP2!!11 I'm just downloading it and my pc is already faster - maybe sp2 is widening the tubes as it's coming down?? Sp2 roxxors!

So any improvements other than lower memory usage?

Just installed it and have neither seen an improvement in memory usage(used to be 800mb and is now 1,55Gb) nor game performance - so there's no reason not to wait for the final version.

Not quite as bad of results on this end, but memory usage went from 850MB to 930MB and I did not see any improvements, only a slower boot up time even after multiple reboots over several hours to let the prefetch rebuild a little. Plus the annoying "Evaluation Copy" on the desktop. So, I too uninstalled the beta and will wait for the final build.
