so after installing the newest Nvidia driver 520.56.06 my CPU is doing 100% load while running steam. if i exit steam it goes back to normal.
I timeshifted back to the older version or nvidia and it still does the same, they were also other libraries that were updated but I can’t remember which ones and still timeshift should have reverted those libs, so yeah idk why but steam is doing 100% cpu
Is it possible that Steam is installing some updates for games?
Over which time span did you observe that?
steam is idle, anytime I open steam is doing 100% cpu load, i’ve checked and steam is not installing or doing anything
When it’s happening, check what process(es) are using the CPU with
Pretty sure it is the Shader Pre-Caching background process doing what it is supposed to do (recompile shaders when there is a driver update, or a shader update). Did you enable this setting in Steam Settings? You can even see there when it is compiling shaders.
