GPU usage is low

I just bought a Asus ROG Strix laptop with 144hz screen, installed games and started playing but on some games(to be specific, Minecraft, Rainbow Six Siege and CS:GO) gpu usage is low(around 30% in minecraft and around 50% in rainbow six with medium settings). The problem is the games are smooth, but they dont get 144fps. They're around 100-110 fps so it doesn't keep up with refresh rate. I tried adding them to Nvidia control panel and setting the power option to maximum performance, but it just doesnt run as smooth as other games(League Of Legends and Rocket League seems fine with locked 144FPS.) What should i do?

What are the specs of your laptop?

Could be CPU bottleneck.

 

I don't know about Minecraft, but if you run R6 Siege on Medium details, GPU usage will obviously be lower.

What is your CPU usage in R6 Siege though?

Model:G512LU-HN080T

GPU: GTX 1660 TI(probably max-q version)
CPU:Intel i7-10750H
Don't know about the PSU, this is a laptop
temperatures are around 80-90 maximum
8gb one channel ram, around 7gb is used while in the game

80*C ~ 90*C on the CPU?

The i7-10750H could be reducing its Turbo Boost.

Base Clock for that CPU is 2.60 GHz, so it's running at around 2.x ~ 3.x GHz, it will bottleneck.

 

Specs say the laptop has 32GB of RAM...

 

Monitor CPU usage, and frequency.

in silence mode, its around 2.6-3 GHz and the temperature is 60-65 degrees, but still both CPU and GPU usage is as low as 20-30%. And this model has 8GB ram and really looking forward to stick another 8Gig.

these are the values on silence mode, and whenever i try to fly or something the FPS value goes down to 60-70 and CPU doesn't push itself to increase it.

Oh...well that makes sense.

'Silent Mode' keeps the cooling fans at a minimum, so then the CPU won't be boosting as high (probably same goes for the GPU).

You are not going to get max performance in 'Silent Mode.' That's the opposite of what 'Silent Mode' does...

 

Switch to 'Performance' or 'Turbo' mode and check again.

 

3.0 GHz? That makes even more sense.

Max Turbo Boost, assuming power / thermal  is not limited, for the i5-10750H is 5.0 GHz.

yeah, not that much difference in performance and turbo mode. The clock rates and temperatures and all increases but it still uses very little portion of them.
