I decided to just uninstall watch dogs 2 from Ubisoft as it is not worth the trouble in optimizing it for my Acer Nitro 5.
Normally when I use throttle stop it would show my CPU's 8 threads, but when I ran watch dogs 2 it only showed the bottom 2 threads.

What causes this to happen? Is it making the game's frame rates significantly worse?
