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.

The Epic launcher was using 25% of CPU resources on my PC last night. Today it's using 0%, and the Epic webhelpers are using about 9%. GPU is at 0.9%
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.
I'm a smoldering volcano of virility. At least, that's what I tell myself.
