TLDR: Overwatch and COD warzone use CPU instead of GPU
No category truly fit this bug. the bug persist throughout multiple games in the blizzard app. I run windows 10. my graphic card is GTX 1050 ti.
Both Overwatch and Call of Duty Warzone run completely on CPU (70-100%) instead of GPU (0.2%). I think the internal graphic card of my CPU is chosen somehow. This makes COD unplayable and causes framerate drops in overwatch.
I tried fixing the problem in two ways (both failed):
- I opened the Nvidia control panel and changed CUDA-GPU to my GTX 1050 ti. also i checked that Physx was set to GTX 1050 ti.
- I opened graphic settings and set both “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” and “Moder Warfare Launcher” to high performance.
My graphic card works fine in other applications and videos.
P.S. I am not planning on responding to comments as I just want to make Blizzard aware of the Issue. I’ve read some forum posts and found out other people have had a similar issue, but always within 1 game. This motivated me to post about my problem, as the problem could be bigger than just within a single game (maybe it’s inside the blizzard desktop app?).
Lets hope it gets fixed
