All the steps to reduce the game’s CPU usage to an absolute minimum for best performance.
Minimize CPU usage
1) Go into Settings -> Performance. Toggle the setting “Progress Bars” to either “Performance Bars” or “No Progress Bars” (Personal preference, as long as it is not on “Progress Bars”.
2) When AFK, put the game in a big menu, such as the Achievement screen, or the View Perks screen. This effectively kills the game’s renderer and should halve CPU otherwise spent on all the screen updates. Works kind of like “AFK Mode” in similar games.
3) Make sure you do not leave the Steam Overlay open when AFK. The game increases its framerate while the overlay is open to make it possible to use the overlay, which comes at increased performance cost from the game.
