Gpu usage drops while in game

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I recently upgraded to an Rx 580 8gb from a gtx 770 founders edition 2gb. I had a fan problem with the first rx 580 so I had to RMA. I got my second one and have been using it and noticed that I get frame drops so I checked afterburner and my gpu usage goes up and down and up. I have the latest drivers, it dosen't thermal throttle besides when I forget to open afterburner and start playing. I get the same 30 fps on Pubg as I did with my gtx 770 at very low settings. From everything I know it is probably either a cpu bottleneck because the g4560 has 2c/4t. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/296390507364483083/530915278079524885/unknown.png

The g4560 could be the culprit.

But did you completely uninstall the nvidia drivers with DDU before putting in the radeon ones?

Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz  | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 |  PaliT GTX 1050Ti  |  8gb Kingston HyperX Fury @ 2933 Mhz  |  Corsair CX550m  |  1 TB WD Blue HDD

Inside some old case I found lying around.

Sounds like a cpu issue. Looking at the usage could help narrow that down.
