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.

Adrenalin 2020 Driver High CPU Usage


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
