I created a separate post with possible and temporary workaround for 100% CPU. It is for NVIDIA users to make sure.

I have an Intel i7-7700k, 8gb memory, 1070ti GTX and cpu usage for just the game is at 80-100%. It’s unplayable and not streamable. It definitely prevents me from creating content or just playing casually. I play on the lowest setting possible, in a small window below 1080p and it still pushes the cpu with the game alone at 100%. No other game had done this to my cpu until now.

I fixed high CPU usage by following this workaround. See if your symptoms same as mine. Please let others know if it worked.

Re: 100% CPU usage- 100% GPU Usage.

I would like to know the specs of the systems upon which the game was created.  I know many game companies use huge mainframes with workstations, not actual publicly-released computers.  But I would love to see their "ideal model" upon which they tested their game in-house.

They RECOMMENDED setup is exactly the SAME as I have. Still...I cannot play even on high setting, let alone ultra. And that's RECOMMENDED, not MINIMAL requirements.

Thing is: the frostbite 3 could work much better. I have WAY HIGHER fps with every Battlefield, including V. So it must be a bad optimization of the graphic engine... Frown

I am running 32GB RAM, an i9-9900K and this game is using 40%-50% CPU at all times and constant 100% GPU usage on a GTX 1070.
