GPU running at 20% with just a 'home' tab opened

I have a very strange problem lately.
GPU is running at 20% when I open completely empty Brave browser.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

  1. Open Task Manager on Performance tab and watch the GPU section
  2. Open Brave. All plugins disabled, Brave rewards off.
  3. GPU will start rising and keep at around 20%

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:
1-3 % GPU running, since I ave Radeon RX570 and Ryzen2700x Processor

Reproduces how often:
Every time it’s the same. I started to notice this only recently. It didn’t use to happen before.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Win10, Radeon RX570 and AMD Ryzen 2700x Processor

Version 0.63.55 Chromium: 74.0.3729.131 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:

Figured what happens! But don’t have the solution yet!

Every time Brove starts it runs the service called “Game Recordings and Live Broadcasts” (BcastDVRUserService_4c2e7) and as soon that happens the GPU starts running at aprox 38% for ‘Video Encode’ and 15% for “3D” on my Radeon RX570 video card.
Yes… It looks that now, a couple of days after my first report of this problem, the probblem actually increased from 20% to 37-39% run of my graphic card.
I should mention that nortmaly it runs at 5%. , which also happens immediately after I close Brave.

I am appending the two screenshots below.
First one is right now, running Brave:

Second screenshot happened a second ago when I closed Brave:

Temp solution:

Go to the Srettings -> Game bar and turn the Record game clips[…] OFF

After that Brave won’t start the thingy by itself anymore.

Result with open Brave:

Hope that helps other people with similar problem.
