Anyone else clock CPU usage?

#1DisastersaurusPosted 9/7/2012 10:26:10 AM
I run an i5 2500k @ 4.5GHZ. I use coretemp to make sure everything's running well, and I have to say, I'm surprised to see that this game is apparently so CPU heavy.

I'm sitting often at 60-80% usage while in crowded areas [WvWvW, big events, etc], which seems really high. Is this common?

Usually console ports are the games that are so CPU dependent, not sure what they were doing with this game -_-

Why would that make a difference?

why is it a bad thing the game actually uses your cpu?

It's not bad if it utilizes my CPU. What's bad is if it's disproportionately demanding. There is a lot going on in this game, so I'm thinking it probably is proper, but having never seen anything even near this level of usage before, it's just surprising.

other games are poorly optimized. it's a good thing for a game to actually take advantage of a quad core somewhat.

have yet to see my quadcore being pegged at 100% in a game yet, but i constantly see the gpu getting worked 100%. complaints should be for LOW utilization, not high utilization

I'm in the same boat. I'm not complaining about utilization at all. My only wish is that I could keep a steady framerate with my rig, which I should be able to. [I waver from 40-60 with a GTX 680]
