Default CPU Usage - Windows Driver Foundation


I have purchased following product:
-> https://i-tec.cz/en/produkt/u3hdmidvidock-2/

I am using this on my Microsoft Surface Pro 3 (i7 processor). I have only 2 monitors connected on Docking USB Station (over USB 3.0 port). When I am browsing and doing basic stuff, following process is causing high CPU Usage:
-> Windows Driver Foundation

This process is only there when I connect Docking station to my Surface. I have read a lot about this issue, and I have done everything like advised on DisplayLink website and forum, but it is still consuming 20-40% CPU when I am browsing or reading PDF files. I think that this is not normal. My surface is up-to date with all Windows updates and also drivers are the latest.

DisplayLink Manager Version: 9.0.1809.0
Windows 10 64bit Pro (Version 1809 / 17763.292)

Please give me info, what I can do, so I will have better performance on my Surface with Docking (2 Monitors).

Hi, I do have same issue with my D3100 docking station.
Just on moving mouse I'm getting higher CPU usage, and I'm getting my CPU fan start spinning. While doing just basic things, browsing, reading documents, working in MS Office. I'm using two monitors also.
When my laptop is not connected to the D3100, no issues.

My configuration is:
1. Laptop HP Pavillion 17"
2. Intel i7 - 6700HQ
3. Windows 10 x64 1809, release date November 13.2018
4. Dell D3100 docking station
5. DisplayLink 9.0.1809.0
6. Connected via USB 3 port
