Agent.exe spins CPU core at 100% when limiting download rate


I just recorded a video of it in action: streamable [dot] com/njvbin

What you see here is me downloading the pre-release content of Overwatch with a capped download rate of 100kb/s. Agent.exe process utilizes 6% of my 16 thread 5800X (100% of 1 core).

You can see me removing that speed limit and Agent.exe immediately going down to 0%.

I noticed it first when my GF’s laptop would get hot “for no reason”.

I think, since the pre-release content at 100kb/s can take a lot of time, and it’s usually running in the background while gaming this isn’t really nice.

Hope to see a fix for this.
