GPU usage not 100%

Pretty weird that my gpu is not running 100% usage even when i play pretty demanding games and im not getting the best performance. Any help to get all out of my gpu?

GPU usage alone is not the best messure for getting the best performance. The question should be: Is the game running like you want it? If the game is running like it should and the GPU is not at 100% there is no problem. If the game is dropping frames, like Linus drops hardware, we have to figure out where the bottlneck is or if something is wrong with your gpu (or drivers etc.)

 

Some questions to narrow your problem:

which games?

one or more?

is the behaviour in some games different?

What do you mean by getting not all out of your GPU. Do you have frames unlimited and don't get high fps? Or do you have them capped at 60/120/144? If caped, are you reaching the cap, or not?

what is you cpu doing, while you don'T get the best performance?

Is one core (switching but always one) at 100%. Or are all cores on high usage?

Do these games use Direct X 11 or Direct X12?

What are the Grafiks setting?

What resolution are you playing on?

How are the temps on the GPU?

How are the temps on the CPU?

Are your drivers up to date?

 

I reccomend narrowing down the problem and then we can focus on a solution

For example while i am playing gta v on automatically set settings by nvidia on DX11 i am getting around 60 fps with regular fps drops and when i checked with afterburner my gpu usage was only 80% at highest. I tried also to get into warzone but with recommended settings on 1080p i was barely getting 60fps in a real match. I read different forums and some lower spec systems were getting over 60fps on warzone with ease.

I really don't know those games and how cpu/gpu intens they are.

Generally i would check that your dirvers are up for date and check if in those games you CPU is hitting 100%. Or getting slowed down in any other way (temps, background programm)

sorry that i can not help more. maybe someone else

I have been updating all drivers from graphics to chipset. I will be watching temps tho. Thanks for ur time anyway.
