The Witcher 3 Performance


So when I run the witcher 3 at 4k high settings I get around 40-60 FPS with a GTX 1070 TI. My GPU is always running at 99-100% Load and my CPU runs at around 6-18% Load. Is that Normal? I have a R5 1600x

If the CPU doesn't need to work hard it won't ramp up. 
When I play Shadow of the Tomb Raider at 1080p ultra, my CPU is at 23% usage and my 1070 is at 5% usage; I get 60fps locked.

yes, the gpu works much harder to provide 4x the number of pixels as 1080p, thus cpu usage will decrease significantly as cpu usage is only affected by fps NOT the resolution
