Epic Games launcher will receive a patch to improve CPU usage (updated)

Never thought about what your CPU does when the epic game launcher runs in the background. In fact, with Raizen processors, it can obviously increase your proc temp by 20 degrees C diagonally.

Yes, there is an error in the Epic game launcher responsible for rogue on Raisen processors that should just be disabled. The good news though is, it has been discovered, is known, and will be fixed soon. The observation was posted on Reddit where wild theories popped up, such as the application using users’ PCs to mine cryptocurrencies or even being used as malware. Inactive application uses 10 to 20% CPU.

The developer of the Epic Games app, Sergei Galionkin, was the one who confirmed that his team has already identified the problem and is implementing a compromise that they are currently testing. At the moment it is unknown when the patch will be released to all users, but it is expected to happen soon. Until then. Turn yourself off in the game.

Update: The patch is out now. 11.02 The launch will update itself. As promised by Sergey Galioninkin, developer of the Epic Games app, the 11.0.2 update is now available that fixes the CPU usage issue that is affecting both AMD and Intel users.
