Suddenly experiencing constant CPU spikes even with 1 tab



  • Hi,

    Have been really happy with Vivaldi and found it to be really reliable and stable for the last year apart from one issue with high CPU usage when I first started using it (which was solved by disabling tab animations).

    In the last week or two it has been noticeably slow, and started getting crackling while playing youtube videos. Today, I've been getting crackly windows audio and general slowdown when Vivaldi is open. I've tried closing all tabs and restarting, but no joy.

    I've just looked at Windows Task Manager which is reporting 9 separate processes, and taking up to 50% of the memory.

    Vivaldi Task Manager is showing the main browser process is constantly CPU spiking, jumping from 10% to 50% apparently at random every few seconds. It appears worse if I'm moving the mouse, but not sure if its coincidence.

    I've currently only got this tab open and have Ublock Origin and Privacy Badger extensions installed.

    Actually... just checked vivaldi://gpu and it appears that I have gpu driver problems?

    The only thing I can think of is that installed Jagged Alliance 2 from GOG.com last month, which required WINED3D libraries dropping into its installation folder (didn't run the .exe) as per this thread.

    I'm not sure how this would affect Vivaldi though? Any ideas?

    @daylor A advice: next time please put long ouput in Code blocks.
    Read formatting help (Compose (?) link in text area of reply) of this forum.



  • Oops, sorry about that @gwen-dragon, will remember for next time. Thanks!

    Which GPU does you mainboard use?
    Is this the latest chipset and GPU driver?



  • @gwen-dragon

    I've got Intel HD Graphics 520 onboard and an Nvidia Geforce 940MX card.

    Hmm.. I'm also finding it hard to see if I have the latest drivers. I tried running Nvidia Experience (should be autoupdating them) but its failing to launch.

    Ok, I've looked on Nvidia website and searching my specific card is only returning the "game ready drivers" which has a different looking version numbering system to my current driver.

    My NVIDIA version: 21.21.13.7654
    "Game Ready vers: 397.93

    I've also looked at Intel:
    My current version is - 21.20.16.4534
    The newest version is - 24.20.100.6094

    However, in the readme for the intel graphics driver it states it is for 6th-8th generation intel platform chips, which I'm taking to be the CPU platform not the on-board video card.... I have an i5-6200U which I'm assuming is 5th generation?

    And, I'm not sure what you mean about latest chipset sorry?

    I'm very confused by all this 😢

    Ich disabled Intel HD in the BIOS of my board and use my Nvidia only as Vivaldi has problems to switch the GPUs.

    Which mainboard do you have?



  • @gwen-dragon

    Appears to be:
    Acer Ironman_SK NBGHG11004630010357600 V1.04

    Did you have to disable the intel HD in bios recently?
    I don't think I've had any GPU issues before 2 weeks ago

    edit:
    I've just tried to manually upgrade the intel driver and windows is stating that my currently installed driver is the best available... hmm.

    edit2:
    Ahah... realised I had to run Nvidia experience as admin, my driver is now up to date, but hasn't had any effect on Vivaldi.
