Just a week ago I gave my PC a fresh windows installation, because I was having issues with my 5700XT unnaturally overheating. The fresh installation did not solve my issues. The card still idles at 75C with fans off. In-game? I don't even like to look, it reaches hundreds both normal and junction temp. But all that is besides the point.
Point was, I'm on a fresh windows installation, latest drivers.
And, only with this version of the drivers, I've noticed unnatural CPU usage at idle. Coming from the "Radeon Software: Host Application".
So that is my question, what is happening?
I actually tried looking for this very setting, I remember in the version older than this always opting out of it, I just couldn’t find it in this software! (Forgot code names for older and newer versions of Radeon software)!
