Hi! I’m running Epic through Lutris with the Nvidia 450 drivers. For some reason, when running Epic, the output of
grep MHz /proc/cpuinfo is maxed out: all CPUs are running at 4200MHz. Note that this is before running any game (or after closing all games).
When I run a game (I’ve tried Abzu and A Short Hike), the CPU usage (in
top) of the game goes up to 350% or more and the CPU temperature obviously shoots up too.
nvidia-smi shows that the Epic launcher and the games are using the GPU, with GPU usage around 40%.
Any ideas what is going wrong?
- CPU: i5-10300H
- GPU: Nvidia 1660Ti
- RAM: 8GB
- OS: Ubuntu 20.04
- Kernel 5.9
These are the first lines when running

The logs from A Short Hike also show the game as using the Nvidia GPU:
