GPU pushing 100% utilization and 78C+ temps on the main menu?

Starting up MSFS and loading into the main menu (no Comm folder add-ons) causes my GPU to immediately jump to 95-100% utilization in the menu and pushes my temp to 78C. This never happened before yesterday’s update.

My PC build is a Ryzen 7 3800XT, ASUS TUF 3080, Team Extreem 65GB RAM, WD SN750 NVMe, with Dark Rock Pro 4 cooler, and 6 case fans.

I’m having a really hard time believing the menus should be using 100% of my GPU resources and pushing temps to 78C before I’ve even loaded into fly.

Anyone else experiencing this?
