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.

Indeed, falling over themselves, what was described as much ado about nothing; except acknowledgement from the vendor and a Hotfix.

I assume the speed and communication of the vendor will be a rallying call of all that is just and good.

I didn't call it false, however I did say "The analysis needs more work..." I'm sure anyone who was complaining about it will be here soon to claim their bonus points.

About those bonus points,
Do you know where I can spend them?
Or do I just stick them in the bucket where i keep best wishes & thoughts and prayers.

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.

Well, he did say "Billions and billions of years ago" in a very silly voice.

You never know. I'm sure he had a jocular side. A center of attention of soirées and other gatherings.

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.

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