excessive gpu usage at login screen


Not the greatest gpu (geforce 980), but 98% usage at the login where there is almost nothing happening seems excessive.
Ensure to lock your FPS and see how GPU changes. Report back what affect that may have.

There is quite a lot happening actually! This scene encompasses a lot of what is going on while in game from rendering vegetation, volumetric clouds, volumetric fog, volumetric lighting, subsurface scattering, transmission, and post processing effects. Our game is very compute shader heavy which puts a decent amount of load on the 9xx series - which is the primary reason we recommend a 1060 or higher as noted in the FAQ. That's not to say you can't play with a 960/970/980 but they might struggle a bit.
