cpu thread 0 spikes once someone joins game and stays that way

Recommended Posts

the game runs fine when i play it by myself (as far as this topic is concerned) but once i let one of my friends join, cpu thread 0 (in task manager) spikes to about 80-90% for as long as someone is in game with me.

despite this the game runs more or less fine, except when it saves, then thread 0 bottlenecks the whole game for a split second, the game seems to save every few min or so.

when the game saves, FPS drops to nothing and game freezes for that split second, almost not that noticeable of a time, just happens a lot.

my system specs are:

Operating System      Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
DirectX      DirectX 12.0

    CPU Type      HexaCore Intel Core i7-5820K, 3600 MHz (36 x 100)
    Motherboard Name      MSI X99S Gaming 7 (MS-7885) (2 PCI-E x1, 4 PCI-E x16, 1 M.2, 8 DDR4 DIMM, Audio, Gigabit LAN)
    Motherboard Chipset      Intel Wellsburg X99, Intel Haswell-E
    System Memory      32662 MB (DDR4-2133 DDR4 SDRAM)

    Video Adapter      GeForce GTX 980 (4 GB)


i am the host, i have not tested when others are the host.

i have mostly tested with me and 2 others.

also have not tested how the game runs after everyone leaves, will try that later and report back.
