Other settings:
Everything at maximum settings in DOOM, G-Sync on Nvidia Control Panel, V-Sync off in both DOOM and Nvidia Control Panel.
CPU usage is around 40%
GPU usage is around 70%
HDD usage is around 50%
RAM usage is less than 16GB (less than 50% all times)

I've tried:
sfc scan, no results
Updating windows, latest version
Defrag/TRIM all drives, no effect
Updating NVIDIA drivers & DDU, no effect
Tried Open GL and Vulkan in DOOM
Lowering/increasing settings, resolution, no effect (80 - 130 FPS)
GPU is set to high performance
CPU is set to Highest Bitsum Performance

Other games run fine. Benchmarks report no issues.
The menu is just a static picture more or less,it's much easier for both the CPU and the GPU to run it fast.
Have you tried this game with bitsum (process lasso? ) disabled? It's a great piece of software but nobody is perfect.

Well the fact of the matter is, the game actually uses my hardware when the screen is paused. When I'm playing the game, it won't use more than 75% of my graphics card. All other applications don't seem to be having this issue though.
