Adrenalin 2020 Driver consuming High CPU Usage

Hi Everyone !

I've been using the latest AMD Adrenalin 2020 driver (faced this issue on both both recommended + optional beta driver).

After installing the process "Radeon Software: Host Application" is taking CPU usage around 30-35% while the system starts, to temporary fix this issue I then 'End Task" in from Task Manager, but it again appears when I start/re-start the system again.

The process is located from the file "RadeonSoftware.exe" under "C:\Program Files\AMD\CNext\CNext\RadeonSoftware.exe" location.

I am using Windows 10 (19H2 v1909 build 18363.535) 64BIT , i7 processor, 8GB DDR4 RAM, 1TB HDD, AMD R7 M440 .

Is this a known issue ? If yes = it's a big issue/bug.

If there's any suggestion on it please do help.

Thank you

I'm also having the same problem, i'm using amd 520 and the new radeon software is making CPU usage goes up to 40%. didn't find a solution except ending the task. i hope someone post a solution to this problem or i'm downgrading to previous versions of the software.

Ya,

This was probably the worst update . . . 

Each time I need to END TASK the process , even My laptop's Fan starts making noise due to high CPU usage . . . .

Disappointing !

Ya, expecting a hotfix update by AMD, hope they're aware of this bug . . . 

It's annoying to disable the task each time upon system load.

They won't be aware unless it's reported >> https://www.amd.com/en/support/contact-email-form
