Once again apples and oranges.

The data you present is about memory usage, not CPU usage, which is what is important here.

Using memory doesn't slow anything down until paging comes into play which, on modern hardware, is probably quite infrequent, unless you're pushing things really hard.

What does matter are the sudden bursts of CPU activity caused by an app (apparently Bluetooth in this case) which affect DPC latency, which, in turn, affects realtime audio performance.
