Age of Empires IV High GPU Usage

Age of Empires IV liked by many players but it has some issues like high GPU usage in some computers. Lots of player comment liked that in gaming forms;

“Anyone else that has a 2070 Super with issues and/or fixed issues and what can I do to help it? I have tried everything with minimal settings even that doesn´t work.” Sev / Steam Form

I have a RTX 3070ti and the GPU usage is just crazy. With no antialiasing, and texture set to medium, the game is still using way too much GPU power. “

Possible fixes for high GPU usage for Age of Empires IV

May one of the following ways will fix problem for Age of Empires IV, yet none of them will fix it too. These are some suggestion from community;

  • Install better cooling for your PC, up to liquid cooling
  • Try to limit FPS for a game. By default it is not limited I believe.
  • Reduce graphics settings: antialiasing, textures and so on.
  • Wait till game patched more
  • Update drivers and GeForceNow
  • Try putting the fps limiter on.

If none of these will work for you can try using general tactics for decreasing power consumption of your GPU.
