Hi guys. I recently Reformatted my computer and re-installed Windows 10 64-bit OS. I am currently on W10 version 1909, and I have lately noticed that when Origin is running, there is really high CPU usage. I have seen it upwards of 80%. when no game or anything is running. Has anyone else experienced this, and or know a fix? Here are my laptop specs:

MSI GT75 Titan 8SF

- Windows 10 Home 64-bit OS (1909 Version)
- 32GB System RAM
- Intel Core i7 8th Gen 8750H @ 2.20 GHz

I have also lately noticed my HDD light is flickering lots. I currently have an 1TB Samsung Evo Plus with the OS installed in my laptop, and a 4TB HDD/SSD Hybrid drive installed as well.

Help would be greatly appreciated

    Went over the basics in all of them, never took it anywhere.

    I do use bash for my job though. It's useful.

    Even the simplest device these days runs some sort of high level language.

    @Veho all the IT stuff i've learned in school has been extremely basic... i knew most of it already

    it's better to learn on your own, it goes much faster than the snail pace they teach you at in school

    assembly is actually great, gets you to run everything about 80% faster than C massaged code
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembler syntax is dead easy, but "how to put pieces together" logic requires to have in mind the original idea, and the CPU layout, and that's like double the work of C stuff. It's best to write C first, add some unit tests, then go assembly, then run the unit tests

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    it can run faster than compiled code, but modern compilers are really good at optimization and you need to be even better at assembly to do a better job
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    with that all your assembler base will actually work

  • Coto @ Coto:
    even on embedded systems, without a damned debugger

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    syntax is easy but the code is hard to read, you can't look at a piece of code and expect to understand it without looking at all the code around it to see how it all works together so it takes much longer to read the code, it takes longer to write it too because what might be 1 line of code in C might be 20 lines of assembly

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    the language is very simple to understand (because it's barely a language at all) understanding how all the instructions work together to form a whole is another matter, in general it's such a pain to work with that i would never recommend it unless you have a need for it. don't listen to this guy and learn assembly just because you want to make your code run faster, you are wasting your time, but if you run into a situation where your code isn't fast enough even after you enabled -Ofast and you NEED it to be faster, then you can consider assembly

    @Coto have you tried -Ofast btw? ;)
