Very high CPU usage since last update

Very big CPU usage since last update, very poor performance even at lowest setting. Used to run very well on normal.

Since release, I have had 50% CPU usage on my end as well. It is only using like 4% of my GPU. I turned down the cores it has access to in the launcher. But, it still uses a lot. It is causing huge stuttering issues. The game is barely playable.

same here. 9700k and almost 95%-100% doing nothing in the hub…

Not to be Mr Obvious, but Darktide is chewing on only a 60% cpu utilization, their are more processing utilizing your CPU, from what the screen grab shows, both steam and discord are claim a large piece of the pie. Steam/Discord In-Game overlay turned on? Both are known to can take a good chunck out of performance.

I’ve the same CPU and same utilization of Darktide.exe which fluctuates between 40% and 70% , but without the ‘total’ CPU utilization capping at 100%, I’m hovering between 50% ~ 80%.

Same CPU, same problem. Game crashes randomly at randomy intervals not matter the worker thread. “1” seems to prevent crashes but runs so bad not worth. Lately I’ve been using 3 but used to use 5. I can’t even run it in fullscreen or I get deadlocked GPU instead of hang which is way worse.

2080 btw (no OC as that crashes it even faster)
32gb DDR4 3000 ram

I just want to use my whole system and not have “will I crash” at the back of my mind all the time.
