    Armoury Crate / lightingservice high CPU on RGB usage

    Why does Armoury Crate have such high CPU usage if the RGB profile is set to anything but static? I am talking 5-10% on a Ryzen 3600 (TUF X570).

    Yes, I've tried everything possible I could search and find to get it to work i.e. uninstall, reinstall, updates, etc. As soon as I switch it to static it drops to 1% or less.

    Please ASUS fix this terrible software. I went with you on this build because I trusted you, but this is unacceptable and searching through this forum, reddit, and anywhere else online I've found nothing but complaints for as long as Armoury Crate has been around. I signed up on this forum just to voice one more opinion to contribute to the growing evidence that your program needs a lot of work.

    5% i have when i use the app most of the time is 2%. but i am using enoght all so is ok for me. the app is ok still need work. and some point here and there.

    I can be sure that the armory crate (lightservice) use less than the brouwer you are using to read these. Is working a update is coming soon .

    I'm sorry, maybe I should have been more clear:

    Lightingservice + armourycrate when in any other form than static take up ~5-10% CPU.

    My browser (firefox) viewing this forum takes up 0.2%-0.4%

    Thanks for responding and I appreciate the comment

    Use ASUS AURA instead

    I have the same issue. LightingService from Armoury Crate easily use like one core of CPU when the color mode is not static.

    I found that using the ASUS Aura Utility (the file called Lighting_Control_1.07.79) https://www.asus.com/campaign/aura/us/download.html instead of the Armoury Crate can reduce the CPU usage of LightingService (even for non-static mode). However, ASUS Aura Utility is not very compatible with Armoury Crate (they overwrite each other's settings).

    Thank you, I'm giving this a shot now
