Opera eats CPU while gaming

  • During my gaming sessions (at any game) I noticed spontaneous huge frame rate drops. It turned out this happens only when opera is running. I thought it might be due to opened heavy tabs like youtube or because of video background on my speed dial page. I closed all tabs and set static image as a background image of my browser. I got frame drops anyway. I even got lucky and captured that moment with task manager window. My CPU is Intel Core i5-7600k, and it's not that weak to be unable to handle empty browser. Why is this happening and why only when gaming? If it will continue I'll have to switch my favorite browser, and it will NOT be Opera GX.

  • @Nikolpix Check Opera's built-in task manager to find out what is using the CPU.
