I noticed when my graphics card was failing that the port taxes your GPU. Then temp soared. I have since replaced it and it’s better.

Many people find that the port is more taxing on their graphics card than the battles are. 

One of the reasons I always set my port for Ocean, and that it's so obnoxious that WG force-changes the port setting every time they release a new or updated port.

I also use Ocean for my port even though I have a fairly new PC.  Shame really, since most of the ports are exceptional eye candy.  Just don't see a need to tax my CPU/GPU for momentary glimpses...

I use the Fjord port and it doesn't bother my old GTX 1060 3GB card at all.  I would guess that some people have a problem due to outdated drivers.

Updating drivers has never helped on this issue, and it's been ongoing for a LONG time.

It's not driver related, it just uses a lot of resources.
