Been using Brave for a cpl months.
No extensions, max of 2 tabs open at any given time.
Win10 Home 64 bit
Ryzen 7 2700 CPU @ 4.1GHz
ASUS ROG Strix RTX 2060 OC
TridentZ 32GB RAM
NH-D15 Dual tower Noctua CPU cooler
all inside a Thermaltake View 71 TG (Massive case with incredible airflow) with 9 case fans for optimal push-pull airflow.
Other people havebeen experiencing the same issue: HIGH CPU & Memory Performance
1st pic is Brave without Task manager.
2nd is after pulling up task manager.
The temps drop after running task manager and the cpu usage quickly fades off to low 1% range.
THIS ONLY OCCURS WITH BRAVE,NO OTHER APP ON MY PC INCLUDING CHROME OR ANY VR OR OTHER VIDEO GAME/RECORDING/STREAMING I DO
When I run Brave, my cpu jumps from idle 32C to 61C. This is the level of my temps when I play VR… Beyond unacceptable temps for a web browser.
Bringing up Task Manager during the temp spike seems to bring focus off Brave and reduce temps, but I have to repeat the process as it does not maintain.
My CPU usage runs from 1% to 35% after running Brave for a short time with a single tab open.
This has also caused my pc to soft- lock, no mouse movement, no keyboard action, nothing. Task manager can be brought up, but power off/reset from that menu has zero effect, resorting to manually resetting my pc.
This is garbage functionality at this point. Ad Blocker extensions on Chrome make Brave redundant. And a brutal reduction of BAT rewards from 0.5 to .005 BAT isn’t worth frying my $3000 (CAD, ya globally deficient plebs) pc over.
Brave WAS good, it’s suddenly become hot garbage.
