@GENERATOR_GRCan you explain here, please? These kind of thing are more simple to read instead of seeing it in a video.

9700k @ 5.1

2080TI

16GB 3200

LG OLED TV 

 

I am getting high CPU usage  hit's 90% and getting dips to 45 fps but mostly sticks 55-60 fps @1440p with only 60-70 GPU usage

I get better GPU usage 90-98% and higher minimum frame rates @4k  with dips to 50 FPS

I don't understand why my min frame rates are better at 4k also the HDR support washes out the colours too much the division 2 had the same issue.

Game worked perfectly at low setting through the VIP demo and early access. After Friday's loot patch, I've been experiencing frequent crashes to desktop. Attempting to rejoin the mission will also crash to desktop. Now it's causing my CPU to hit 100% and I can barely move in-game. I know my rig is a bit old but it had no issues running this game up till Friday.

I've swapped over to liquid cooling, put new fans in that push over 70cfm each and yet each core is 65-90% useage. System temperatures are still over 175-190F which is insane and my computer sounds like a Hoover Vacuum because all fans are maxing out. This is on medium settings. All other games I play are on max settings and my system barely breaks a sweat. What gives?

 

Core i7 9700k Corsair H60 liquid cooler.

GeForce 2080Ti 11GB

32GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4 RAM

Hopefully this helps someone else

 

Tried most of the fixes in this thread - manged to improve the mouse/keyboard CPU issue.

However the below was the final thing to both improve my FPS and CPU usage

 

a) Limit FPS to 60 using RTSS (I'm using a 144hhz Gsync monitor

b) Move the game from my SSD to a HDD 

 

This has given me 50-60fps in game (other than the Fort) and no keyboard/mouse issues

 

Build

i5 2500k o/clock to 4.4Ghz

8 gig RAM

How can they blame SSD's when the game worked fine until the latest patch? This seems fishy.

 

I´m not going to go back to normal drives. I´d rather not play EA games at all tbh.

Anything from Devs on the high CPU load issue? I had to reduce FPS to 45 FPS after patches to play without stutters. Before patches I could do the same with 60 FPS. This doesn't make any sense.
