GPU consumption


I would like to know why Sharpen consumes the GPU even after the image has already been processed. I watch GPU consumption with Windows Task Manager. This happened on my old PC and continues on my new computer. Shouldn’t GPU consumption be zero, especially with the window minimized?


The performance of your system shouldn’t be greatly impacted by persistent GPU utilisation, therefore this is usually not a reason for alarm. But if you observe unexpected or excessive GPU consumption that interferes with other operations, it could be worthwhile to check for software updates or change the application’s settings to see if you can lower GPU utilisation in the background.
