[Resolved] SGT Performance: Huge CPU Usage



Continuing the discussion from The Stonehearth Graphics Test Thread:

The Stonehearth Graphics Test Thread

I noticed a significantly large increase in CPU usage. Not enough to slow down my system, but tracking on task manager shows a big jump when it is running. Surprising for such small visuals. Perhaps a lot of the full game code is running behind the visuals?

My Processor:
AMD Athlon II X 630 2.82 GHz (quad core)

I’m about to upgrade my processor to a AMD Phenom II X6 1090T 3.2 GHz (6 core). When I bought this system these were $1,000 processors. I picked one up for $200 on eBay.


This is really more “ongoing” as we continue to tweak performance, but let us know how it’s looking in the wild.



we can add an additional bug type, but i like the idea of reporting something as fixed in version “x”, with new reports being opened to address a bug that resurfaces…

obviously in this case, its an overall performance issue, as opposed to one specific “thing”…


First Graphic Test didn’t work for me, but this one does. I got around 50% usage of CPU and RAM but I don’t know if that’s bad or not because my laptop hasn’t got a good graphics card for gaming =/

Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 (32-bit OS)
Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU P8400
2.26 GHz 2.27GHz
Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family

(Shouldn’t post my info in every post because I accepted sending the info through the game :sweat: )


not a problem! the more information, the better… :+1:

thanks for the follow-up…


Ah, I don’t know if this goes in here, but apart from my cpu usage I experience quite lag :pensive: I’m almost sure it’s fault of my video card…
