Graphics issue

Having a little issue, not sure what setting I am missing.  When playing Ark, My GPU utilization is like 40% and I get fps in the 70-80 range with spikes above 100 every once in awhile.


I have a 1440p monitor that can do 165hz. windows setting are correct.  I just feel like I should be able to get better fps.  I can get 150+ in some other games. 


Any help would be appreciated.   I am running in a windowed so under the 1440p with all settings at epic.


The thing I am wondering about is why do I never get over 40ish% utilization.  running an 3900x with 32gb of ram.

Ark survival is a horribly optimised game from what I've heard, so I wouldn't be surprised to see issues like these

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)


none atm

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


Products I like:


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:


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

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


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:


Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:


Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.
