    Posted: 24 Mar 2021 at 10:34

I recently started playing Illyrid on my PC. However, whenever I play it my CPU resources hit 90%, while my GPU is only consumed 15-20%.This bottleneck is causing massive frame drops. Does anyone know how to fix it? 

Configuration of the PC:

10th gen i5-10400

NVIDIA GeForce 730 2GB

8GB, 1x8GB, DDR4, 2666MHz

Are you playing with the Steam client?

You can play Illyriad with the browser. In my experience it is the better version and might fix your problem. As far as i remember all you have to do is add/change the password under "Your overview" -> "Account & Prefs" -> Password to enable the Illyriad website login. You can still use the Steam login after that.

May also be running purely on CPU and not using your gfx card at all.

Thanks for the suggestion. I found this article after a lot of searching on Google yesterday, and after reading it, I came to understand that your suggestion is absolutely true. I had a problem with the graphics driver on my computer. My problem was solved only after I uninstalled it and downloaded and installed the updated driver from the manufacturer's website. Now my graphics are using 45-50% and CPU 55-60%
