Anybody know why my GPU use and therefore heat skyrockets when in port? Much lower in game.  What makes port so GPU intensive?

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 GDDR5 8.0 GB

It's just something that the GPU does for some reason

I have a 1080 and cannot confirm this. Neither ingame nor in the port the fans are running with more then 5%.

Which port are you using?

The game is more Processor heavy/dependent/heavy  then on GPU. I am trying to figure out what else are you doing with what I just told you....

Don't confuse playing the game with sitting in port. To me it was always common knowledge that WoWs used a stupid amount of GPU when sitting in port.

Like others have said the best thing to do is just run ocean port.

I haven't seen GPU results just by being in port. So i just assume regardless of what activity it is, over all WOWS is PCU heavy rather then GPU. IF there is a change I just haven't seen it.

Many games allow frame rates to get out of hand when in the animated main menu. Try using your video card setup application and setting VSync on, which will limit frame rates to the refresh rate of your monitor.

I've never paid attention to mine, but I always run my fans at a constant speed. I dont let them run automatically.

I've never had an issue with 1060 6gb, 1070 ti, or 1080.

I'm assuming there's more going on in port than in an actual battle. Detail is up close and fills your screen. In a match it varies by distance.

I changed to ocean and have turned v-sync on.  We’ll see what that does.  Thanks all for the recommendations.

My 1080ti runs yellow in port- well ventilated enthusiast level case etc. Not uncommon.

Cools off in game- all good

Because since day one, the net code/optimization of Port has been a complete joke since day 1. They refuse to fix it, but have no problem adding ports....Here is a simple fix I do every patch that seems to help a lot. 

 

What I'd changed was:

<cacheEffects>false</cacheEffects> to <cacheEffects>true</cacheEffects>

<streamCacheSizeKB>2048</streamCacheSizeKB> to <streamCacheSizeKB>8192</streamCacheSizeKB>

Hit save

 

The engine_config.xml file resides in the 'res' folder.

Does this change affect the Port UI at all, or is it still laggy as all get out?
