Would it be so worse than for example uncached shaders compilation? I'm not talking about OpenMW which has simple shaders but something like AAA games.

Is it not possible to hint the scheduler? Otherwise anything HT would always trash latency sensitive workloads.

If CyperPunk2077 suffers from the same issues as we do, what makes you think we can do better? ;)

What we did recently with navmesh is to set that thread to a lower priority which should help the OS in scheduling.

Funny thing, CP2077 with their 1.2 patch ended up doing the same thing with the streaming thread, lowering its priority s well which helped on PS4 Pro in bumping FPS, but meaning that meshes/textures are slower at loading... so when you zoom by in your car, objects will just fail to load because they didn't have enough time too.
