If you are asking me, the OP,

Ok, they're fairly recent but you might wanna try updating just in case. IE11 relies heavily on the GPU for rendering.

As a Chrome user it's true that most sites with images etc cause a 100% cpu load for a bit when loading a page, and there's no real difference if hardware acceleration is on or off.


I just wonder if it has to do with the drivers myself :p (running latest Nvidia drivers).

I wondered that too, but depending on the content it'll happen on both my Nvidia and AMD boxes in all browsers.
