Premiere Pro 2024 taking all Dedicated GPU Memory when importing audio files

I noticed a very annoying bug in the latest update of Adobe Premiere Pro, every time I import and audio file mp3, premiere suddenly starts to use all the dedicated GPU Memory, wich makes the preview unplayable or play with a lot of lag. The only way to fix the problem is to restar Premiere. I noticed this happened when I import Audio files into the project, it doesnt happen with video files, but also I have experience randomly while I am working and I can't find a reason for why this is happening.

 But as soon as a drag a new mp3 to the timeline the GPU Memory usage skyrockets

 It stays like that forever so the preview runs with lag, basically making it impossible to work

As soon as I close Premiere Pro the GPU Memory usage goes back to normal.

I also wanted to provide a video of how the graph of the GPU memory skyrockets when I import an audio file but while recording my screen with OBS I found out that it doesnt happen while you are recording. I tried it several times with OBS recording and it didn't happen, but as soon as a tried without OBS recording the problem happened again, so it might be a clue for someone who is looking to fix this.


By the way I hate to update Premiere cause it always have this stupid errors but I had to do it this time cause a client was using the latest version.
