1600mhz boost for a 1070 8gb?

lilEpicNam3

so ive noticed that im having low fps constanly and then i saw that im only getting like 40% gpu usage  SI 1600MHZ normal for boost clocks?

bottleneck somewhere else then, CPU and memory for example

maybe thermal throttling?

I dont think so, if usage is only around 40%

Try cranking the settings up in games and run a few benchmarks like Superposition in 1080p extreme and tell us your clocks. If it stays the same use DDU, wipe your drivers and install fresh ones.

ive had this problem so much... in gtav im playing at mostly high settings but my cpu is at around 70% and cpu is around 50 while only getting like 70 fps.. its really annoying.. dont judge me but i was playing fortnite and i was constantly playing with around 60 fps. and this is a huge problem because i have 144hz monitor

right now im playing csgo at max settigns and only getting 80 fos max and dropping whenever in combat

 

what are the reason for a gpu not boosting?

Well yeah, that sounds like a CPU bottleneck which is somewhat fine in CPU bound games like GTA V. Second, 3770k is still a decent CPU in its right and it will do 60 fps fine, but wont cut it with high refresh rate gaming. Just to eliminate any other issue, i would suggest running that benchmark to see how much GPU does actually boost to.

yea ill check it out just so strange cause it started doing this out of nowhere..

 

would u recommend any good budget cpu to upgrade to? if i would upgrade i would have to get a new mb aswell and i have a really tight budget so i dont really know what to do

 

i also did a heaven benchmark just now and it boosts easily to 1936 but it doesnt boost in games like csgo/fortnite/apex legends

Well yeah. Personally, i would not go beneath 6 core CPUs these days. So Ryzen 5 2600 or at least i5-8600k, tho Intel is better at high refresh rates,but none of those are options if they arent in the budget. Budget option would be overclocking your CPU and cooling it adequately.

 

It seems that your CPU is bottlenecking then, which can be explained. Try cranking the settings up in all your games.

i have a beefy aircooler but my motherboard is locked so i cant overclock my cpu.. ive went throught the option to overclock but than buying a new motherboard is the new problem.. i have a really old motherbaord (p8h61-mx r2.0).... and would overclocking give any significant impact with a 3770k?

No overclocking with that, yeah. It will certainly do better when overclocked, its up to you to decide is it worth getting a new motherboard. 

 

I would say it is, if it can be found for the right price. There is one more thing you can do, to gez GPU usage higher, but it will still be good mostly for 60 fps. You can enable DSR in nvidia control panel and set a custom resolution to 2560x1440. That will bring your GPU usage much higher.

Yeah, i understand. Can u max out the game please?

ive tried dsr before but it makes everything look too blurry and i dont want higher usage i just want more fps.. but in terms higher usage means more fps but with dsr it wont give me more fps

Well higher GPU usage usually means higher FPS in CPU bound stuff,dont know how to explain it properly.  Try reinstalling the drivers even tho this is a CPU issue.

no i somewhat understand what ur trying to say but i feel that dsr will give me higher usage with no fps increase yet i still dont want to do it because it makes everything look blurry

Well, you have nothing to lose, u might try it, and turn up setings to very high.

no i just checked and i have windows power setting on high performance 

seems like my cpu usage is still really low.... which is weird to me because if it was a cpu bottleneck then wouldnt it be at 99%?

 

these are my specs if u need anymore info

Set priority to high or realtime and make sure all cores are checked.

yea i set it to high.. all my cores were checked but still the same usage.. about 55%
