10.3 GPU Usage Way Up?

I’m seeing 10.3 use about double the GPU as 10.2 on the same session. Anyone else?

Mac mini (2018)
macOS Catalina 10.15.5
3.2 GHz 6-Core Intel Core 7 Processor
32 GB 2667 MHz DDR4 RAM
Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB GPU

Check if ASIO guard and/or Suspend vst3 plugins … are not flagged.
I have heard that 10.3 installs with other defaults.


I haven’t been able to use 10.3 consistently but hadn’t checked GPU usage til now. Same project is def pulling more from the GPU BUT I arbitrarily turned off my Nektar T6, which is plugged into the USB port of my monitor and noticed a big drop in usage. not sure I can switch to a different USB port without spending the day moving equipment.

& I’m on a 2018 Mac Mini, 3.2 i7, 32G RAM.
