New UE4 user here. On using UE4 for the first time and building the below basic scene as shown in the photo, my computer’s GPU started to race and the temperature and RPM climbed to crazy high numbers as shown in the other photo below. I have 32GB RAM, a nice AMD Workstation Firepro W7000 4GB GPU and i7 3930K 3.60GHz.
You can actually hear the GPU racing loudly. If the screen is on idle, the racing stops. However when I resume navigating around the scene, the racing resumes accompanied by the temp and RPM rise.
I have a great system and am not sure why this problem exists. I am pretty sure that I need to tweak some of the UE4 settings because somewhere (I cannot remember where) I read that settings need to be tweaked depending on the PC etc for optimal performance per the GPU etc. and certain features need to be switched off to optimize performance. I don’t know what settings tweaks are needed though.
Please help with a possible diagnosis and solution because I don’t want this first impression to discourage me because I have seen that UE is awesome!
