Hi, first of all, thank you for taking the time to read through my rather simple question.
Basically I've been experiencing low frame rates in Rust. My immediate thought was to check the ram, after way too much deliberation, I figured it wasn't that. Now I thought to look to my CPU and something that I found odd is that it's a 3.40 GHz base clock and it's only running at 2.20 GHz under the load of Rust. I was wondering if one this would be influencing the performance and the FPS I'm getting and in-game. And two if so, how I could go about fixing it.
The specs of my pc are as follows:
CPU: Ryzen 7 1700x 3.4 GHz
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1080 OEM card 8GB
SSD: 1 TB Samsung 860 Evo
HDD: 3TB 7200RPM Samsung
Ram: 32GB DDR4 3200MHz G-Skill Memory
Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
It is also only at 30% utilization while I play Rust
