Is gpu usage suppose to be 100%?

I have a Ryzen 5 3600 and a rx 5600xt. When playing cod mw I get 100% gpu usage and not much cpu usage. Is this good?

yes that's good. that means the cpu is faster then the gpu which is a gpu bottleneck which is not bad compared to a cpu bottleneck. A cpu bottleneck is where the graphics card is too fast for the gpu and that looks like cpu 100% gpu 50%. A gpu bottleneck is better in my opinion because it is easier to replace the gpu to a faster one then switch out the cpu and possibly motherboard. So basically your system is doing its job

Yes. Why would it not be...?

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + 2x ML120

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz CL15 (Micron B-die) @2933 MHz

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X @1120 MHz / 1450 MHz

120GB 850 Evo

120GB Kingston SSD

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

Logitech G502

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

Sennheiser CX 5.00G

And here would be where I would put a picture of my cat. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

Depends. I mean ideally, you'd want to be close to 100% because that means you're actually fully utilizing the performance you paid for. However, if you're at 100%, and struggling to keep up with the frame rate or quality that you want, then that might be an indication that you need a better card. I'm not saying that's actually the case, as the 5600XT is a seriously decent card, but you're not going to do like 144fps at 1440p with it, so if that's something you're wanting, then yeah, you need a better card. It's all about what works for you, but maxing it out isn't a problem in and of itself.
