Why GPU usage is very high on the main menu?

Hi guys,

 

I have been playing WOW for the last 6 months or so and it annoys me that the GPU usage is always very high during menu or ship selection. However, during the actual gameplay, the GPU is not high at all. Bizarre right?

 

Has any of you guys encounter this issue? Any solution?

 

I'm using AMD Vega 56 and i7 6700k.

 

Thanks

Stronk coding skillz mate.:cap_haloween:

Ports are very demanding, designers desk is probably the least resource hungry.

With a mods you can make port just a pure black background.

Loading of different things still can be too long.

There are 2 possible reasons that makes sense, everything else is hogwash.

  1. incompetence
  2. malicious intent

There can be NO other reason why this problem already exist for years and wasn't fixed yet. There is also no other logical reason why the game consumes more power in idle state (in port) than when you actually play the game.

 

'Solution': If you are in port and open the Armory the GPU load goes down to like 3%.

Do you think they might be running a crypto mining? lol

 

but if it's been running for years and they don't even bothered to fix it.. that's like a serious design flaw

 

but I will change the background to designer desk instead. Thanks for the workaround

It's just that the game is about as optimized as kansas is optimized for battle. WG is either incompetent or lazy, or just incapable of optimizing the game because they picked the wrong engine to make the game in.

That is so true - just loading into the armoury takes an age, even with an Evo 970 M.2.

This is because the armory is a webpage and the port UI features a slow, flash based integrated browser.
