menu at 96% gpu load

how is this even possible?

also, a strange thing happening lately (started after the last patch, I think) is that the gpu load temporarily falling from 96% to idle causes a system freeze of one or two seconds. what´s wrong there? any ideas?

At least the game is utilizing all of your gpu...

Same problem. GPU usage in the menus is a lot higher than when in game.

If there's a fire burning in the menu background image, my framerate tanks to around 12 frames per sec.

It's only a menu ! It shouldn't hammer our poor old GPUs as much as it does!

Hello @bahzooga and @Congas,

Can you upload your DxDiag here, please?
