will check if more CPU are used.
I just compared sound of fan between last two updates and after. TT never pushed my fan to be this loud before updates. I usually have only Steam and game running when i play. And fan calms down when i turn TT off.
All CPUs are used. But it give almost same shape of timeplot diagram for all 8 CPUs... I am not 100% sure that is how it should be if CPUs are complementing each other and not duplicating work, can somebody double check it?
@DerNiepe and I took a look at CPU usage and performance on our respective machines, yesterday, and saw nothing really different to before... CPU usage never really exceeded 50% overall. Threading isn't very clever in game/Unity engine, I don't know.
We should write our spec's down too.
So i'm using:
i7-5820 K (Hexacore) @3,3Ghz (Running 4.0Ghz Stable) -Game usage max. 31%
16GB DDR4 RAM - Game usage aprox. 4-5 GB
GTX 1070 MSI OC 8GB - GPU Usage @30% max.
Memory Controller Load approx. 11%
Game Graphics all max but no Depth of Field
I tested a bit around and the results are:
-Changing the resolution from 1600x900 Windowed (My streaming resolution) to 2560x1080 Fullscreen has no effect to the usage of any component.
-If the FPS drop's for any reason, the usage of CPU and GPU will drop too. I.e. i play on 60 FPS with 30% CPU and load something big that will drop my FPS to 40, the usage will drop to... let's say 20% both.
Tools I used to check:
Process Explorer of Microsoft TechNet and TechPowerUp GPU-Z
I would say it got little better. And now when TT use all 8 cores I would expect that use by-core is lower but it is not, so optimization helped a little but it is not even close to optimal. That is why computers are overheating.
Me it's since 0.8 , i can hear my fan , a rare thing who only happen when i've playing to ARK few years ago , and it happen even with "good" graphic , before that it's wasnt the case even with "fantastic" setting.
Yeah, the increased GPU usage is simply because of better overall framerate. And increased CPU usage is largely due to Unity being... Unity. Using GPU for game processing is not really feasible in a game like TT, at least not with DX11.
