[Duplicated]Opera slow + shutdown, eating up all 16MB RAM

Since last year I had more and more problems with Opera using endless RAM. While 100+ tabs were no problem earlier, this has not been possible recently.
In Jan 23 I switched my computer to a new one, i7, 16 MB RAM (as before), Windows 10 pro, today Opera 97.0.4719.63. Same problem: with 50+ tabs everything becomes slow... even with 20+ tabs open the cursor is sort of "jumping".
Tried Opera GX, but no difference - the only effect: while synchronizing I lost lots of bookmarks. This is really a poor experience, Opera! I would love to use it further, but with this poor performance it is impossible, unfortunately.

I just had a strange problem, that Opera was stuck for a few minutes (I couldn't click anything in Opera, nor tabs, nor open menu), and during that time it was slowly eating more and more memory up to 19 GB. After it Opera unfrozen, and memory consuption started to slowly decrease. At that time I opened Opera's Task Manager, and inside it there was no process with very big memory footprint, it looked like always, when it consumes around 7-9 GB, what is normal for me.
Also recently, such freezes (but short) and also slowdowns happen often (especially when opera is opened in two windows), which was not the case in previous versions. Current version is 97.0.4719.63.

@leocg Thanks, I had checked that all the time - and yes: plenty processes from opera (like 30+), consuming the full RAM. When I had limited the RAM available for Opera in GX, the problem came up earlier, as soon as the allowed RAM was used... Also I had shut down all other apps.
