Is it running a game loop or something? :P

I didn't check if one core on my laptop runs at 100%, but it behaves like a hairdrier at the moment xD.

I am also having this issue. For the last 15 hours, my laptop has been running so hot that it hasn't fully charged yet.

Running ok on my i5 based desktop. Something like 10%.

My desktop PC also seems to use less CPU power,
but the patcher uses 50% of my GPU, what's really strange
(that's more than League of Legends).


But it seem no to interfere with me playing games, that normally need about 80% GPU power, they go up to about 90%, so suddenly the patcher only takes 10%.

The patcher doesn't seem to be frame limited. With the patcher up on screen my fps was at 1900 and my video card was working as if I was playing a resource intensive game.

That makes sense, cause when I start to drag the launcher window around my graphic card and cpu stop working on Hex for a moment.

I have my graphics card capped at 120 FPS (you'll have to find how to do that for your specific graphics card) so try that? Hopefully it will be fixed for beta, but in the meantime you might want to look into it.
