Cubase vs Task Manager CPU usage don't match

Does anybody know why my CPU usage is around 25% in Task Manager while in Cubase it is showing about 90% ?



my system : i2600 with 16GB ram / Lynx AES-16e / Aurora 16-VT

They’re not showing the same thing!
Search for CPU Usage in the forum e.g. Steinberg Forums

Thanks :slight_smile:

From what I’ve read in this forum the VST performance is for asio not your computer’s CPU.
2 different things.
