Windows currently has bug atm affecting a small number of users, where the idle process is sometimes counted against CPU usage.
Use a different program or look at the 'Processes' tab to see how much Fortnight (or other any application) is using.

That is a older 4c/4t cpu, so thats isnt that suprising

thats seems about right, does gpu usage go up with higher settings?

None of it...Your GPU could run this shitty Game 10 times.

And i doubt your CPU would be maxed out by it either.

Yes your CPU isnt realy good, but maxed out? Try to enhance the resolution, max out the graphics etc. Give the GPU as much work as possible.

But sooner or later you need a better CPU if you want game without problems. Its sooner, not later btw.
