  1. Microsoft Edge using 80% GPU?????


    So for the past week or so, I've been having an issue where watching a YouTube video at any resolution above 720p causes my GPU to hit 80% usage, even if YouTube is the only tab open. And recently, I noticed this started happening randomly outside of youtube.com as well. I'm confused, as I have an RTX 2060 and I'm pretty sure 80% usage on a single YouTube video isn't normal. Does anyone have any idea why? Listening to YouTube Music whilst working/gaming is literally impossible for me now....

    I'm running an amd 1700 with 16gigs of ram if that helps
