GW2 Launcher @ idle uses 10% CPU resources

Recommended Posts

The launcher is actually a web page rendered by CoherentUI, which is all done on the CPU, whereas real browsers are capable of using your GPU. If you were to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox (restart) and view a page with a constant animation, you should see a similar usage (quick sample).

They could surely reduce it, I'm guessing they're needlessly redrawing the window, but it's really not something to care about.

GW2 uses Amazon's CDN for patching. It's all standard http downloads.
