GPU Usage spiking to 0

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Lately, my GPU has been acting up lately and performs extremely abnormally for what it was suppose to. For reference, I've had this graphics card since 2016 and it was all okay till recently. After a hardware upgrade and couple software updates later, it starts to stutter and drop in frames every 2-3 minutes. The spiking is bad enough already but I had tried to look past it because after upgrading my motherboard, ram, and CPU, I wasn't trying to spend more since I was perfectly fine with my cooling solution and graphics card. The spiking progressively got worse where it would take a bit to come back to it's full utilization. What I mean by this is for example, in cs:go I can have frames going in the range of  300-390 but then suddenly drop to 2 then stay between 15-25, to 30, back to the full 300 frames. This isn't just with games as well, it's over my entire system. Simply moving a window or my cursor around will freeze for a couple seconds and then slingshot across the screen. I've recorded what happens in an MSI afterburner graph while I was running cs:go for reference. I'm also running the latest BIOS update on my motherboard and nvidia drvier update 451.85.

Thanks to anyone that tries to help!!!

did you do a fresh OS install?


Things I need help with:

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

try using DDU and re-install the GPU driver

Okay I finished up the test, It's more or less the same. I've also noticed similar spiking in another area called BUS usage, may or may not help out with the explanation here. (First image is the gpu usage and second image is BUS usage.)

run a software called GPU-Z, bus interface should be pcie 3.0 x16 (or x8 minimum)

It happened a little while after the upgrade. A Nvidia driver update came out and it just happened once or twice now and then but then it slowly descended into multiple spikes 2-3 minutes. Thank you for all your help so far btw!!

hmm... sounds like:

1) newer driver causing issues

2) your storage is having issues

 

shouldnt be bloatware issues if you done the USB fresh windows install

or bad driver install if you used DDU and re-installed the driver

2x16gb and it is running at 3200mhz
 

CPU is average 60-70 temps at load same with gpu

the CPU is also OC'ed I think? it use to be 3.7ghz before I made the ram mhz go from 2666mhz to 3200mhz

all storage is pretty open with over half storage unusued

so you can see why I'm pretty confused. I had nvidia driver 451.65 at first and this was happening but then they came out with a hotfix 451.85 and they specifically said there that the addressed the issue I was having. I've added a screenshot of it here. It did help but slightly.

hmm... you're running dual rank in dual channel

might've strained your IMC a bit, im not too sure if zen 2 can handle 3200MHz in dual rank, it should (as it's officially supported up to 3200)

but try switching the speed to 3000, FCLK to 1500 to remain on 1:1 ratio

keep the XMP timing for now, see if it solves your issue

 

also make sure they're on slot 2 and 4 from the left

if RAM doesnt solve your issue, try DDU-ing this gpu driver and revert back to something older, like, 3 months ago maybe

Alright good news and bad news. It's back to suttering every now and then when going backwards in drivers. But it still happens. I can live with this but I think my gpu might be bad.
