So I run an i7-6700K with a nvidia 1080ti, and the game runs generally good. However, and this has been a long battle with the game, hordes will eat your CPU up like a Texas steak. Oddly, it seems people with higher-end rigs have this issue more than anyone else, at least from what I’ve seen.
The main factor that seems to be cauterizing CPUs seems to be simply the shadows, as all entities in a horde have their own shadows loaded in. So concerning the optimization updates, will there be any experiments done on how the CPU can react with less stress during hordes?
