The Last of Us Part I Update Released, Promises to Reduce CPU Usage, Full Patch Notes

The Last of Us Part I

As promised, Naughty Dog released a new major update for the PC version of The Last of Us Part I. This latest update promises to reduce overall CPU usage. To achieve this, Naughty Dog has updated the game’s texture streaming procedure.

Additionally, this patch updates the user interface to correctly display VRAM usage. This will be crucial for anyone who owns GPUs with 8GB of VRAM. And, in case you’re wondering, no. This patch will not reduce overall VRAM usage. It will also not improve the quality of Medium Textures.

Thankfully, Update improves overall stability. According to the developers, there is a fix for a known crash that would occur randomly during gameplay. There is also a fix for a crash that could occur during shader loads when starting the game for the first time.

As always, Steam will download this patch the next time you launch its client. Below you will also find its full changelog.
