Ubisoft Tech Support is categorically denying that Digital Rights Management and Virtual Machine Protect is causing one hundred percent Central Processing Unit usage with the Assassin’s Creed Origins video game on personal computers. Digital rights management and virtual machine protect is used in some video games to stop piracy. However, there are claims that this anti-piracy solution actually causes video games to heavily use a central processing unit.
Some gamers playing Assassin’s Creed Origins have complained that they notice one hundred percent CPU usage. Some are even complaining of their computer over heating and getting a blue screen of death. Aside from your computer running slower at one hundred percent central processing unit utilization.
You do NOT want your computer to over heat. When your CPU utilization spikes like this you want to monitor the temperature of your computer. One hundred percent CPU usage can cause a computer to overheat.
“The anti-tamper solutions implemented in the Windows PC version of Assassin’s Creed Origins have no perceptible effect on game performance. Uses the full extent of the minimum and recommended PC system requirements… while ensuring a steady 30fps performance.”
Ubisoft tech support recommends at minimum an Intel Core i5-2400s running at 2.5 gigahertz or Advanced Micro Devices FX-6350 running at 3.9 gigahertz or equivalent processor. Ubisoft tech support has released a version 1.03 patch for this Assassin’s Creed Origins game. However, they did NOT stipulate whether or not this would fix the one hundred percent CPU usage issue.
Not all gamers playing this game are receiving this issue. This patch is 1.3 gigabytes in size. It is supposed to improve performance and stability in game play.
Since Ubisoft tech support denys that their anti-piracy implementation is causing high CPU usage, perhaps they won’t release a patch to fix this problem. If you notice high or one hundred percent central processing unit usage playing this game, make sure to monitor the temperature of your computer.
