The High CPU/RAM/ETC Usage Topic

  • The High CPU/RAM/ETC Usage Topic

  • Hi.
    Opera often causes high CPU usage with no obvious reasons by a specific tab, page, URL or so.
    The internal Opera Task Manager (Shift+ESC) shows "GPU-Process" as guilty: 68%, Memory 300MB.
    But also the process "Renderer" pops up sometimes with highest CPU usage.


    My solution, workaround, is to kill each process in Opera task manager when its too high.
    This helps a while. 🙂

    Suspicious is that this often happens when using Facebook heavily with closing and opening new tabs for that.
    I open and close many FB links to load in the background 🙂

    Also i detected the task Windows Power Shell for a very short time when viewing the normal Windows 10 task manager when CPU is high.

    Perhaps this could help to solve this problem and also helps other users.
