    I see up to 6% usuage avg with mine. I have even turned everything off for game recording, instant replay, GIF making, etc. Made 0 difference.

    Other then that, driver has been very very solid.
    Enhanced sync, freesync, etc work. Just these two bugs.

    Hopefully the Omega drivers next month tackle the cpu usuage issue.

    Only thing open is chrome besides normal stuff, with GURU3D tab. That is it.

    Sometimes, very rarely, RadeonSoftware starts up not working properly. Typically, it won't open the Settings Menu. I kill off the process, and restart it, then everything is working ok. I wonder if this has anything to do with CPU usage spiking.

    So in case someone wonders if installing it + resetting settings (but preserving the user data) via AMD installer helps remove the CPU usage.... No it doesn't.
    Will try a complete clean install now... incl. DDU.

    Idk it starts every time without issues. I had some custom fan profiles not being saved on boot but thats fixed now a while ago. Im looking right now at radeon settings 0% cpu usage.

    Always doing a clean install here.

    OK. So after a CLEAN INSTALL incl. DDU everything back to normal.... 0 up to 0.1 % usage as it should be... Seem like one of the settings in the user-DB borked the software causing high CPU usage.... pity to loose all the stats.... but... oh well...

    UPDATE > so... after setting my settings.... the cpu usage is back to 2.7-3%....
    WTF !
    I did set the following :
    -Custom fan curve under Performance/Tuning (advanced control / fan speed),
    -disabled automatic check for updates,
    -enabled chill with min max range and image sharpening under graphics,
    -under video - enabled custom and enabled fluid motion video
    -under general switched back to english

    UPDATE 2 > on restart is back to 0... Only if I open the settings it remains in background using 2-3 %... After killing it or on reboot back to 0....

    I always disable fast boot in windows because i dualboot with linux. Fast boot messes up some things on linux in terms of accessing to ntfs partitions.

    First time I've had to DDU last driver, installing on top of the previous cause a few crashes. That certainly isn't something to complain about.
    Works without issues, though I haven't played demanding games since installing.

    Driver running great. I've seen no major changes. To me that is a working driver. I'd like to see some Freesync 2 HDR saturation levels fixed in Division 2 and Assassins Creed Odyssey though. Nothing I can't fix without using the HDR whitepoint slider though.
