Radeon Software Host Application constant CPU usage

Why is this process that's meant to sit idle in the background CONSTANTLY using ~10% of the CPU?

Tried reinstalling the latest driver, but it eventually came back eating up the CPU without even running any game...

Are you sure you don't have replay on and desktop recording? It shouldn't use that much for it anyway but I guess it depends on your system.

Re: Radeon Software Host Application constant CPU usage

Yes, I'm SURE that I don't have any of that stuff enabled since I don't use any of that... Literally the first thing I do when I install/reinstall the driver is that I disable all this stuff...

I'm getting the same behavior. It started right after I upgraded to 2020 yesterday. Sheesh.

Re: Radeon Software Host Application constant CPU usage

Hello,

I've just made the Update to the 19.12.2 version on the 4/12/2019 on my Lenovo Ideapad. Since the CPU charge is between 18% and 30% linked to the program. So the cpufan is always turn on and noisy. The only way is to shutdown the service. I think it is just a shame. I'm waiting an update from AMD...

Change default radeon re-live save location. My system was trying to save to a folder that didn't exist causing this issue.
