The Epic Games Store latest patch addresses the app's high CPU usage bug

Patch 11.0.2 for the Epic Games Store app has been released, mitigating an issue which caused the storefront to utilise an unnecessary amount of CPU resources. This bug caused unwanted temperature spikes in CPUs and increased power draw in what should be close to idle scenario.  

Most reports on this issue claim that it affects AMD Ryzen processors, though this issue appears to also impact Intel processors. Thanks to the Epic Game's Store's December 29th patch, this issue should now be addressed for most PC gamers, though Epic Games' Sergiy Galyonkin has stated that "it's not a full solution". Further patches may be required to fully address this CPU usage bug. 

At this time, it is unknown whether or not this bug negatively impacted the performance of most PC games. It is possible that this fix will increase the performance of some CPU-limited titles.
