FX-8120 Going 85-100% load on all cores running Photoshop

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have my CPU OC'd to 3.57Ghz at the moment until I get my Silver Arrow tomorrow.

When I run Photoshop currently, whenever I apply a filter or do any kind of rendering, all 8 cores hit 85-100% for the duration of the render.
This doesn't seem normal to me - it's kicking my temps up to 58C-ish.

Any advice as to why?

What kind of GPU are you running? If you're running two, make sure you have SLI enabled (this was causing issues for me with Java... sounds wierd but turning SLI back on fixed it.) Also, you should be able to offload rendering to the GPU which will do it much more efficiently than your CPU. The setting is somewhere in Photoshop, but I can't remember where, as I haven't used PS in quite a while. Finally, ensure you're using Photoshop 64-bit, as the 32-bit sometimes replicates processes to all cores, causing ridiculous load.

I didn't even install 32-bit.

I have a single Radeon 4850 X2 - I did forget the setting though. I'll change that and report back.

It installs both 32 bit and 64 bit, some processes run in 32 bit because adobe is awesome like that...

edit: you can tell it to run 32 bit for all things though, may have accidentally done that?

I had unchecked 32 bit on install but perhaps it did sneak in.

After some deep web digging, it would seem that Windows 8/8.1 loads the wrong gpu driver for the 4850 and potentially other cards.

I'll test this and report back later.

Thank you guys.
