Cpu and Gpu power usage at the same time.

Is there a possibility that cpu and discrete gpu can be used at the same time at their full potential apart from mining crypto?

It's very unclear what you mean, or why this question is posted in the power supplies forum.

 

The CPU and GPU handle different tasks. Some games could get them both to 100% utilization depending on settings, but more often one part or the other is maxed out while the other has a bit more to give. Mining crypto on PC is generally a GPU-bound task. 

 

Are you asking about CPU integrated graphics in addition to a discrete graphics card?

I meant Cpu power + Gpu power. can they be at 100%, if yes which game or activity will lead them to do that? gaming + streaming?

Theoretically.

Benchmarking.

 

Why is this desirable?

Depends on your CPU mostly

Any game  will get GPU to 100%, but only use a couple cores usually, tho some games can use more

Then if you have high end 12 cores+ CPU you need to use some more programs, streaming, browsing, editing...

It is not desirable. I was thinking if i can get a 650w psu. pair it with i9-12900k with 3080ti and do gaming, 3D modelling and Game Development works. and if it would be a problem and since it is not possible in any of my works. May i proceed with my build and save some money?

No. A 650W PSU is not adequate for that system. If you're already spending the money for a 12900k and a 3080 ti, don't cheap out on a PSU.

Mining can as well, some apps leverage CPU + GPU not just the GPU.

To clarify (based on what OP said in his duplicate thread in the Power Supplies subforum): he's asking because he reasons that if he doesn't do anything that uses both his CPU and GPU at 100%, he can get away with saving money by buying a lower-wattage PSU (650W for a 12900k and a 3080ti).

Oh.  Gaming will use enough of both to warrant a stouter PSU.  Maybe not 100%/100% but I would never try to cut that corner.

 

If you're trying to save a couple bucks on a PSU while buying a $500+ CPU and a $1000+ GPU... you're failing.

It was just a curious question. Just wanted to know if that is possible. I was closing my deal with 850w psu. Just a question popped in my mind.
