So I can only confirm this anecdotally, but today I heard my PC getting loud only to realize that the culprit was the Epic Games launcher. (Usage verified in HWinfo64 and task manager)

The abnormal thing was I was updating my graphics driver simultaneously. Not sure if that had anything to do with it. I closed the Epic application and the problem was solved.

Question is what in the world would cause such a massive CPU utilization across a 20 thread CPU. A fluke?
