We are having the same issue. Edge seems to open from 9-10 processes per tab open. It seems to be using a lot of CPU clocks. This seems to be a huge issue and  hopefully they will address this in future builds.

@Marco Mollace 

Check Version 76.0.166.0 (Official build) Canary (64-bit) out, I think the CPU high usage has been fixed.

@Peter_Dinh 

 

Can someone post Browser Task Manager screenshot confirming that? We need to move on with testing, but some folks already uninstalled Edge.

@sambul95 Can you do it yourself? As a techician yourself, do not trust anyone else, instead "trust" yourself and "trust" your own eyes.

It's still too early to decide about it, this issue happen randomly and is not always present.
This issue appears to be fixed with this build on my end
Solution

Edge Insiders,

 

My name is Tim Scudder and I’m a member of the Edge performance team.  I wanted to provide an update on this issue: we were able to repro the problem locally, we have a fix coded, validated and are now working to get this change into our next dev drop (estimated to be 76.0.166.0).

 

We apologize for the inconvenience, but truly appreciate everyone’s help in isolating the problem.

 

NOTE: We are also aware of a VSync timer tick issue that also has CPU/battery impact that originated upstream in Chromium's codebase.  This issue has been fixed upstream and we are also working to make sure the fix is in our next dev drop (again, estimated to be 76.0.166.0)

 

Regards,

Tim Scudder

@Tim_Scudder

 

Thanks for the update and your involvement in this matter. It shows how much more efficient product development is when augmented by direct communication with keenly interested browser testers. :)
