Aero Glass 1.5.9 causing CPU overload

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

@bigmuscle,

Hi, thanks for AG.

I have seen here reports of previous versions, maybe AG 1.5.8 causing memory overload when used along with a video stream and this also happened to me.

Today I use W10 17134.165 with two monitors, one for work and the other for a video stream (via browser, Chrome, flash) that is active while the pc is on.

I noticed that when AG v1.5.9 is active it causes an overload in my processor of some 30% more which gets to produce shorts freezes in the movement of the mouse and windows. So I can not use AG today.

Any movement on the screens, even the mouse, causes an increase in the CPU. Opening a browser also produces a large CPU increment.

I already downloaded symbols and it did not solve and a dwm reset solves temporarily.

Is it only with me?

 

Regards
GTI

What GPU and how much videomemory? Maybe lack of videomemory?

Good observation, well remembered.
When the CPU is overloaded the GPU and its memory are also overloaded. I will pay attention to the GPU resources.

My GPU is Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 (HSW-DT GT2), 1200MHz, 80 cores, 20 CUs, Driver 20.19.15.4835
Graphic adapter: Intel Haswell-DT GT2 - Integrated Graphics Controller

Windows Task Manager without processor overload:
Dedicated Memory: 0.0 / 128MB
Shared Memory: 0.5 / 2GB

Regards
GTI

You can try to increase dedicated to GPU memory via BIOS to 256Mb. But on my Intel HD 2000 Sandy Bridge on my work comp 128Mb didn't cause a problem...

I've never seen option in my BIOS to increase dedicated GPU memory, I will look again, but anyway I think that nothing will change.

I noticed that when the CPU is overloaded the GPU glues by 90-100% and the GPU memories almost do not change.

With AG active, just opening the start menu overloaded my GPU by 90-100% but the CPU does not get overloaded.

Now I can safely say that disabling transparency in the Chrome title bar in this way,

1. Open Chrome and paste chrome://flags/#windows10-custom-titlebar on adress bar then hit enter.
2. On "Custom-drawn Windows 10 Titlebar", choose "Default"
3. Restart Chrome and title bar glass is gone.

substantially decreased my CPU load, but AG still consumes a lot of CPU/GPU resources, more than previous versions.

Now I can safely say that the only way I found to reduce my CPU/GPU load to its 10-20% normal levels was to install a AG 1.5.9 version that I found on the internet off the official site.

Now the windows move continuously with smoothly, mouse and window movements and opening the start menu do not significantly influence the CPU/GPU load.

Now I do not need to stop AG when I have to work.
Back to normal life! :cool:
