Hi all,

since i have updated to driver version 17.9.1 i have this PPCUF.exe running in background and its using constantly 10% of my cpu, ryzen 5 1600.

The exe file info leads me to amd performance profile.

So what is it doing? and is it normal that it constantly uses 10% of my cpu?

Do i need it?



Ok for those who have the same problem, the problem (actually not really a problem) is one option in the driver settings.

So PPCUF is actually called amdppcuf.exe and it is used to send performance reports to amd to help them.

In Radeon settings under Settings there is this option to help amd with user experience or something, just uncheck it and the

PPCUF.exe "problem" is fixed.
