I've been using premiere for a while now, and up until about a month ago, I was using an intel core i3 9100f processor, which was making premiere use 100% of my cpu in task manager and making playback lag for obvious reasons. So, I decided to get a new processor, (an intel core i7 9700k to be exact) yet the problem has not fixed itself or even gotten better. I've checked task manager, and now it's only using 10-30% of my cpu. My computer is capable of running premiere more smoothly, yet chooses not to. I've tried everything, nothing is helping. My best guess is that premiere still thinks I'm using an i3 processor, and it can only use 30% of my current processor because 30% of my current one would be similar to 100% of my old one. Any help is appreciated. My specs are: Intel core i7 9700k (8 cores), Nvidia GeForce gtx 1660, and 16 gb ram
