1080 ti under performing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, this is post is here because it’s a bit of all components. So I have a GTX 1080Ti Asus ROG strix OC (really high end 1080ti)

with a i7 4790 not overclockable, 16gb of ddr3 1600mhz ram and my games are struggling to play high settings at 1080p which is really frustrating as I paid around 1k for my gpu during the bitcoin craze last year. I am thinking about upgrading my motherboard, ram and cpu to something quicker like a i7 9700k and some new gskill rgb ram. Do you think this will solve my problems?

What games? What FPS are you getting?
CPU & GPU temps?
Monitor plugged in to the graphics card and not the motherboard?

My first guess would the locked i7 not delivering enough single thread oomph.

Well gta 5 is a good example, it does drop down to 45fps quite a lot and the temps are pretty good, the cpu is liquid cooled and doesn't get above 50c and the gpu doesn’t go over 60 and I am 100% sure that the hdmi is plugged into the correct socket

Should definitely be getting more than 45FPS in GTA V at 1080p.

Any crazy mods in GTA V like super duper extra realism mod with 8k textures or something?
DSR (Dynamic Super Resolution) disabled in Nvidia control panel (3D settings)?
Both sticks of RAM detected and showing 16GB in task manager?
No background tasks eating up resources?
Have you reinstalled display drivers? (If not, use DDU and install the latest from Nvidia website for your card).

Try running MSI afterburner while you play the game and keep an eye on the CPU & GPU usage in games. See what usage % they're at. Ideally you will want the GPU to be at or near 100% most of the time.

The gpu usually runs at 10% or less most of the time and I am running gta 5 vanilla no mods

sounds like a cpu bottleneck to me. 

 

So you reckon it’s worth upgrading the cpu?

Definitely, i actually had the same issue with my 3570k and the 1080.

I switched to 8600k and the performance difference was clear. My GPU was getting to 100% on all the titles as well after that.

Previously it was around 40-50% tops.

That's like it's not even being used... You sure the HDMI isn't plugged in to motherboard and using CPU integrated graphics?

 

What's your CPU usage while the GPU is sitting at 10%?

The cpu is at max performance and goes up to 100% and stays there most of the time

CPU bottleneck for sure.

Userbenchmark shows i7 4790 is equal or a bit slow than an i3 8100.

Which is what I have paired with a 1050Ti.

Also the old i7 has in total 16 pcie lanes, which the 16 lane GPU is sharing with other onboard devices.
