Yeah, checked all of that. The game itself is using on average around 82% CPU when actually in game. It will spike up into the 90s but I'm solely looking at the CP2077 process while this happens. I'm wondering if I actually need to consider updating my chipset because my temps (on a waterblock) are getting pretty high. Idling at the title screen is shooting my CPU temp to around 55C. This isn't really concerning as far as the actual temp vs tolerance but while in game I'm hitting 70-80C. I JUST cleaned the old TIM off my CPU and reapplied some Thermal Grizzly too and made sure the block was making good contact. I don't know if my CPU is starting to die or if CP2077 is actually this CPU intensive.I have an I7-8700.. It seems to run between 45% and 60% for most games but if a background task starts up or If I leave the browser open or something then it can easily get to 75%. I mainly just keep track of the temp which tends to hover around 75 - 80c for just about every recent graphics intensive game.
Windows antimalware often decides to do crap when I'm playing games even though I have it set not to do that and even tried scheduling it for certain times. Doesn't seem to matter what I do, it just does what it wants. So it's always good to look at other tasks and see if they are doing anything stupid.
Also using the latest driver set and used DDU to clean my system just on the off chance it was some weird driver issue. See my other reply for other details. The game runs well; I'm just concerned about the actual utilization and temps while I'm on a water block.I have a i7-8086k, GTX 1080, 16gb DDR4-3200mhz, 860 EVO 1TB w/ rapid mode enabled and am getting 60-70% CPU but only 4-5% GPU on both Low and Ultra settings. I have tried running the game exe directly without galaxy but the same issue continues. If posting a dxdiag helps the overall group in finding out what is going on here I'm happy to do so.
EDIT: I am using the latest nvidia drivers 460.79 after running both clean install and another clean install using DDU in safemode.
EDIT2: During cutscenes, GPU usage is 30-40%. Soon as it returns to the game this goes down to 4-5% max.
Yes, of course. I did a clean install of the latest video drivers (460.79) And the rest of the software should be fairly fresh
