High CPU Load - PC - AWARE  @ 6/12 09:00 UTC

With the Season 3 Update we've made changes to improve game performance on PC. Allowing better utilization of the CPU during gameplay is part of these improvements, and in general we're now seeing a positive increase in performance. However, some of you have reported instances of full CPU load leading to reduced game stability.


We've added additional changes and tweaks as part of Update 3.1, and we're still investigating further improvements for an upcoming game update.


Workaround: As the game is now better optimized to draw resources from the CPU, if you notice throttling then try increasing your in-game visual quality settings and resolution to instead switch some of that load over to your GPU. We encourage playing around with your Settings to find out what works best for your specific system.



The details listed in this article may change as we listen to community feedback and continue developing and evolving our Live Service & Content. We will always strive to keep our community as informed as possible. NO WEAPON, MILITARY VEHICLE OR GEAR MANUFACTURER IS AFFILIATED WITH OR HAS SPONSORED OR ENDORSED THIS GAME
