1.06.17 does not have this issues?
I do not have in my game Peripheral Lighting ... I see high dpc even on desktop..
i have asus zenith extreme alpha ... and i use extension fab card II if i use 18.104.22.168 this device is not detected in Aura.
dpc spikes i see on desktop. I'm using Asus Aura Terminal and Asus Extension Card 2.
Does any of this two things require new version of Aura?
Yes, I think you have no choice but to use the latest version.
Try Static effects on AURA Sync (which consumes the least resource and the most stable).
