Premiere Laggy and eating up 100% CPU

I'm having this annoying problem after updating my Premiere Pro CC to the 2021 version.

 

Every time I open a project, my computer slows way down for about 10 minutes, and in my task manager, I see that Premiere is eating 100% of my CPU. I've never had this problem before the update, even with lots of chrome tabs open, AE, Photoshop, and folders. But now, even if I close everything, I still have the same problem for about 5-10 minutes. Mouse dragging, everything laggy, and suddenly the percentage goes down again, and I can work properly.

 

This only happens when I open Premiere.

 

My pc specs are:

Asus TUF X-570 Plus

Ryzen 9 3900x 12 Cores - 24 Thread

HyperX 64GB RAM

GTX 1070 ti 8GB

 

I appreciate your time and help.

It is natural for your CPU to spike when you open up Premiere Pro. You may have some funky codecs that take time to redraw as seeen in the video below.

This video demonstrates the results of using different drives for the media cache files when using Adobe Premiere Pro. Having said that the media cache files need to be cleared out from time to time. Adobe Creative Cloud: https://amzn.to/33rTUTYAdobe CC 1 year https://amzn.to/3Da0qMN Link is ...

Thank you. I still see some small problems after this update, such as seconds or minutes of peaking the CPU usage and slow performance, but this helped a lot.

Yeah I've seen this a lot with AMD users. I myslef have the same problem and it's beggining to osund more like a chance to drop this company once and for all and use other alternatives. There is foul play in every update and they are very behind on many things that shoul've been resolved by now.
