100% GPU usage even in lobby

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

I have been playing this game since the beginning, but recently I got a very annoying issue.


Here is what happens almost every time I tries to play:

- I started the game and played for a few minutes, the FPS suddenly drops to ~10, which is totally unplayable.

- I quit the match and get back to lobby, the FPS still remains very low, about 16 fps. (Normally, I got more than 200 fps in lobby)


When I open the task manager and see what happens, I see my GPU usage is 100%.



Does anyone have any idea what is going on? Thanks.

Make sure you have updated your GPU to the latest drivers and updated any applications that are for your GPU (Catalyst for AMD and GeForce Experience for NVIDIA). If you have all updates trying checking for and malware or virus with your anti-virus of choice. What will also work, closing applications like discord, skype, steam, etc... because they might interfere with Apex. Keep us updated Standard smile
