Games not getting 144fps, gpu/cpu only at 60%

I've been noticing this lately (with any video card) that in some games where i know i should be getting 144fps i may be getting 90-110.  Both gpu and cpu are maybe at 50-60% usage.

 

Acer 144hz 1080p, MSI titanium 1070Ti (max temps 68c stock), 16gb corsair lpx ram 2400mhz, i5 7600k @ 4.8ghz (max temps 72c)

Hmmm, strange if BOTH CPU and GPU are not maxed out.

 

Is the game frame limited for some reason? Some games dont go beyond a certain FPS, regardless of your hardware.

 

Try enabling Vsync, since that should lock your framerate to 144Hz / 144 FPS? Maybe that would fix it?

Which games? Some games just aren't well multithreaded so in the extreme, the CPU could be maxed but you could see only 25% usage if the game only creates one thread worth of work

I think that is because the frame rate could be capped. in some games this can be changed in settings in others it can't be changed.

Please don't argue with me, I am just trying to help, or be helped. (we are all humans right?)

I will narrow it down then look to see what fps those games max out at.  Thx :)

Run a benchmark like valley or heaven. Help you narrow down the issue.

Just ran time spy and got a score of 6703  gpu 7318 and cpu 4543.  Running at 100% during the gpu tests and the cpu was at 96% during cpu tests.  GPU never got past 64c.

So it's a game or driver issue.

which games are we talking about here?  Some, like Overwatch, are frame capped out of the box, probably worth checking out as others have mentioned.

Another problem.  GPU is throttling at 60c.  I have it oc'd to 2ghz core and after about 5 min it goes to 1924-1911.  Should i increase the voltage or power limit? The limit goes up to 133%

Isn't a thermal throttle just how the steps are for 10 series. Could try what ever you want if you think it would help keep the clock speed up. Turning the fans to max would help more.

cranked the fans which gave me 62c max but still throttled about 50mhz.  I guess its just the way it is.

But temps are not the issue here.  I've never heard of a card throttling under 70c

Like I said it isn't a throttle. Its how the states are. If it was a thermal throttle it would be very clear. The entire 10 series does it.

This is just how pascal works.

If you wanna hit 2Ghz for exemple , you have to set it to reach 2050-2075Mhz.

It will slowly drops to 2000Mhz when it's at the right temp.

 

For exemple  i am running my 1080 at 2100Mhz.

In heavy games the card will be around 2075-2050, in less demanding games it will be 2100.

I wish i could oc my body, during winter overheating would be great.
