Epic Games Launcher Hot Graphics Card Hotfix

A tweet from Sergiy Galyonkin indicates that the recently identified problem that caused graphics card temperature spikes on systems when running the Epic Games Launcher was a bug (thanks PC Gamer). He says they have rolled out a patch as a preliminary partial hotfix that seems to be working:
The fix seems to be working, so it shouldn't take long.

The hotfix is live now (11.0.2). It's not a full solution, but things should improve.

I don't think Carl would say anything quite that silly.
You never know. I'm sure he had a jocular side. A center of attention of soir�es and other gatherings.
Apparently he was quite charming. As evidenced by the fact that he nailed so many of his female grad students that he could have been a carpenter...

Not a skit. Just the way he said things struck most people as odd. You can make fun of someone, and still think they're brilliant. I grew up imitating his speech patterns, while still being inspired by him and watching all his programs.

Well, well. I was wondering what was causing my system to safe-boot into BIOS, with no activity from me (no overclock either). I guess now I know.

Wtf, immediately go read some of Carl Sagan's novels or essays/articles, or even find some youtube clips of him lecturing.

One of the greatest minds of the 20th century!

You need to think about getting moar cores if that 4 core 3570K can cut it running the epic.
Yeah, I've been thinking about it. Hard to justify when I'm not really seeing any issues in-game. It does take forever to convert videos to various formats. Luckily, I don't do that very often.

Just because they admit there's a problem with the client doesn't mean they're not spying on you. They already did that with Steam.
