Black Ops 4 PC Guide: How To Solve High CPU Usage & Low Performance Issues

If you are a Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 PC player and you are having a problem of high CPU usage or having a low performance while playing the game, this guide might help you solve the problem.

Preparation:

NVIDIA Users should go into NVIDIA Control Panel, Manage 3D Settings, Program Settings and then Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Here set the pre-rendered frames to 1 so that the CPU doesn’t waste resources preparing frames for the GPU before they’re ready to be drawn.

AMD Users should do the same with their driver suite.


What to do:

Step One: find the file in the directory below:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Call of Duty Black Ops 4\players\config.ini

Step Two: find those two settings in the file:

worker_threads

threaded_rendering

Step Three: check and note down what your default numbers were, most users who had the problem had numbers like worker_threads 2 and threaded_rendering 0.

Step Four: you need to change the value of threaded_rendering to 1. After this experiment a bit with the worker_threads settings to see what best suits your processor. The best setting for this game that players report are using one less worker_threads than your PC’s threads. If that doesn’t work, try another value that may better work for your specific processor.
