New beta usuing 41% power from gfx card in idle

★★★★ Novice

as title says when ever origin is open now it draws 41% of power  from gfx card when origin client is open. It never did it before this update. Therefore i am forced to close origin when i am not actually gaming or temps go up on gfx card. Hope this is fixed soon or if anyone knows a work around.

@KillGlanceUK Thanks, can you attach an image from your monitor of this happening?


On the offchance that this an odd bug can you reinstall your Origin and restart with a Clean Boot, then check again?

Ah wonderful, thank you for the update. 

You mention using DDU, did you try the driver setup's clean install before this? I've had some unconfirmed reports that sometimes a full wipe with DDU is needed, but it'd be great to have a confirmation from your case.
