I just want to start off by saying that I'm not an advanced Linux user. I've started using Linux distros since almost a year ago and I feel pretty confident about understanding the basic structure of Linux. I've found Solus to be a great alternative to Windows when it comes to productivity. It's simple, solid, and lightweight compared to other popular modern PC operating systems.
One thing that I've discovered about the installation on this machine is that Solus tends to favor only one of my CPU cores. On some boots, it evenly distributes the load across all four cores, but on other boots, it seems to cram most of the load onto one core. In some cases, it will randomly switch to favor another core. The system feels sluggish and slow when this happens. I've never had this issue before on Windows. I don't know what's causing this or how to fix this permanently. I can temporarily fix it by suspending the system, and then spinning it back up.
I updated my system about a few hours ago.
Here are a couple of images illustrating what I mean.
There doesn't seem to be anything unusual under processes.
