The demand of games are increasing now, well who wouldn’t be fascinated by the latest high end games that are being launching recently. However, these games require considerably high dedicated graphics and processing power to run smoothly in your PC.
Graphical processing units(GPU) has to perform at its peak in order to give you the best experiences. This requires your PC to run in maximum graphics settings, which will boost your gaming performance. But this too requires the CPU to run at its fullest.
CPU is computers control system. RAM, motherboard & GPU rely on CPUs instructions to operate on a task. When users play high end games, which requires maximum dedicated graphics. When graphics requirements of the games exceeds GPUs dedicated graphics, the games stutters and crashes. High CPU usage is one of the primary cause for this issue.
Managing background processes
Make sure that neither background programs or applications are running. Background programs can suck up your computing power and make your gaming performance real bad. So, make sure to close unnecessary applications to use your processor at full potential.
- Any background services can also be a cause of hindrance in your processing areas. You can check this using the Task Manager option.
Check for the program consuming the most of the CPU
- Analyze the background processes and close down the ones which are not required
In the majority of the cases, the browser consumes the majority of the CPU memory. Try to
close the browser and all its tabs.
Check for malwares or viruses
A bug or virus may also cause heavy CPU usage by automatically initiating the
background processes. The inactivity of the Anti-Virus software in the PC may also let the malware inside
and cause havoc in the CPU.
The Gaming performance can surely be hindered if certain malicious tasks or codes are running in your background. These malicious files can definitely decline your gaming performance, & make your computer slow by sucking up lot of computing power. To resolve this issue:
- Install a trusted and verified Anti-Virus software.
- Maybe try to entirely reset the PC and run it as a new machine.
- Keeping regular check on the PC and if there is any issue occurring in the device.
Reboot your System
Rebooting a system can get rid of all your temporary files & end all background services or programs. If your PC is lagging/sluggish rebooting your system might do a trick.
Overheating issue of the CPU:
CPU can get overheated sometimes while running heavy games and gaming software. The cause can be inefficiency in dissipating head from the device. We have two fixes for this kind of issues:
1. This issue can be settled by applying a good quality thermal paste on CPU coolers.
We can also use external CPU coolers to dissipate the internal heat released due to heavy gaming and in order to run the games smoothly.
Pausing the installing Updates while performing CPU intensive tasks
Windows 11 automatically downloads and install the Windows updates. However, the installation files are pretty large, it takes sufficient time, processing power and RAM to download and install those updates. I suggest that these updates should be delayed while gaming, coz it sucks up CPU usage enough to effect gaming performance How to stop the ongoing update.it will make your CPU usages low
Corrupt Game/System files
Once the malware/virus hits the device, the virus’s aftermath may persist even after
its removal. The files that get affected explicitly due to the virus may lose some data or
function in a very obnoxious manner.
These files may need to be repaired and surely need some repair to help the game run
successfully without crashing again and again. Correcting the files can be to format the
disk and remove everything off the root drive.
- Try troubleshooting using the command prompt
- Format the entire device and re-run the game by reinstalling it completely
Gaming requires a high-end CPU to yield the best possible results. Even after
spending loads on a computer device, the CPU may still be crashing or troublesome. The above-listed issues are a few things to check if the game doesn’t perform fully.
Ending Unnecessary Programs using Task Manager
You can ease up the load on the CPU by navigating to the task Manager. In task Manager you will see some ongoing applications, services, & background processes. You can take a look at those ongoing programs and remove or end those tasks, if those programs are unnecessary for you right now.
This will free up your RAM and processor for the tasks you want in hand. You can Open Task Manager by pressing Ctrl + Shift + Esc. Alternatively, you can press Windows Logo Key +S and search for Taskbar Manager.
You can get quiet useful information about your PC using Task Manager including CPU usage, Memory Usage, GPU usage & performance of your PC.
