Let's do some simple math:

 

8000 x 4500 (pixels) x 8 (bit) x 4 (channels) ~ 1.1 GB of memory usage.

 

Rinse-repeat for multiple layers, effects buffers, whatnot. There is nothing to purge because the memory is actually required to hold the pixel data. The file size of the project itself doesn't matter at all for this.
