Low CPU and GPU Usage in Certain Titles

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've noticed that in some games (Borderlands 2, Destiny 2), FPS gets very low at times, while CPU, RAM, and GPU usage all remain low. In other titles and benchmarking applications like Heaven, I see the expected performance with much higher GPU usage. Usage percentages don't change much when applying different graphical settings in-game. As far as CPU usage on a per-core basis, all is normal from what I can tell. Temperatures also remain steady, with the CPU hitting a max of 60-65C and the GPU never going past 65C. Neither the CPU nor the GPU are overclocked.

 

I should also note that programs like Speccy and EVGA Precision report CPU temps of over 100C, whereas Ryzen Master, MSI Afterburner, and HWInfo report the temps mentioned above.

 

What I've tried:

Messing with all the settings in the NVIDIA Control Panel
Uninstalling graphics drivers
Setting any sort of power management setting I could find to prefer maximum performance
Disabling HPET
Reinstalling Windows

 

This is a screenshot of per-core CPU usage while running Destiny 2 at 1080p Medium Settings: https://gyazo.com/d28664599f50badc6c77e7bfe11e4e7e

 

Specs:

Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
Ryzen 5 2600 CPU
RTX 2070 GPU
MSI B450 Tomahawk Motherboard (Latest BIOS Version)
G.Skill Aegis 2x8GB 2400mhz RAM

EVGA SuperNOVA G3 750 W 80+ Gold PSU

 

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Take a look at your BIOS/UEFI settings. You can find more power management settings here which are more important than system ones.

Couldn't seem to find anything that was trying to save power
