The Epic Games Store launcher could be fixed soon

Epic Games reports that they are currently working hard on fixing their Store launcher problem.

A few days ago it was announced that the Epic Games Store launcher had a major problem. This generated load on the AMD Ryzen processors, causing a noticeable increase in temperature. Now, from Epic Games they report that they have identified the problem and are correcting it. While there is no release date for the patch, it may be released shortly.

The problem is that when the launcher is in the background, it has a load on the processor. By generating load on the processor, it does worthless work, generating heat. Hence the complaint of the users and that from Epic Games they report that they are working to correct the problem.

Epic Games works on solving the problem of the launcher of its Store

The developer Epic Games, creator of Fortnite among others, has its own digital store. This is based on a launcher that allows you to manage, acquire and play different games. Come on, the principle is the same as Steam, Origins, etc.

A user on Reddit reported abnormally high usage of the launcher on his AMD Ryzen processor system. The community began to investigate their systems and saw that they had the same problem. Apparently it used some processing threads, hence the increased consumption and heat generation.

Sergiy Galyokin, one of the developers of the Epic Games Launcher has responded on Twitter about the problem. They just said that they are working on it.

We must emphasize that although initially it was thought that it was only a problem with the AMD Ryzen processors, in the end it has not been. Apparently, users with Intel processors have also been affected.
