CPU consumption while idle

Post by gwinn » Sun Jan 30, 2011 1:21 pm

I recently noticed that GBM has started to run sluggishly on my PC. I assumed this was a problem with underlying system but when I started investigating I noticed that gbm.exe consumes just under 50% of the CPU even while idle (eg with the campaign screen displayed but otherwise doing nothing). Is this normal?

Thanks in advance.

As the game is 3D it generally runs at the best frame rate it can up to a point so its not unusual. It will run faster (frame rate) when less is happening but still use up a chunk of the CPU.
