GPU being underutilized despite no identifiable bottlenecks, leading to performance issues.

Go to solution Solved by BloopBucket,

Welp, after looking further into the issue with the CPU it appears that that is the problem, what specifically is the problem or what's causing it I don't know yet. I'm probably going to make a new topic tomorrow that addresses the issue more directly with the new data I've collected, to see if someone has seen similar symptoms before.

GPU: 1060 6gb

CPU: i7 6700hq

BIOS: (if it helps): Quanta QP114, (2016-09-04)

 

Exactly as the title says, I'm getting constant FPS drops and microstutters in every game I play from CS:GO to R6:S. When I tried to identify the cause I couldn't find any whatsoever, the temps were fine, literally no piece of hardware I saw hits 100% usage (that includes each individual thread on the CPU), I don't have an FPS cap enabled on any games and my systems on high performance mode, not power savings. I have absolutely no idea what to do about this, any ideas? I attached an image taken less than a second after a sudden drop to 40fps, note the low temperatures, low hardware utilization and the clock speed of the CPU. Test done in Warframe w/ maxed settings -motion blur. Another interesting thing to note is that it says my GPU is idle in GPU-Z, pretty sure that's not normal during use.428987999_2018-11-05(6).thumb.png.8b4d1ea2ebaf36739ead3722615446c2.png

Make sure the CPU isnt staying below base clock when running games

In Windows power management set the minimum CPU speed to 100%.  Make sure that your GPU is configured for "maximum performance" in its power settings.

Is your GPU OC'ed?

The fact Task Manager is reporting the processor is running at 1GHz (CPU-z is reporting 800Mhz) concerns me

It IS an issue, but it's not the main issue here. The processor speed ramps up if it's needed, in more CPU demanding circumstances it sits at around 3.3 GHz. Even then the problem with the GPU never going much beyond 30% usage remains.

Already done. Actually, come to think of it why does it go down in these circumstances despite that fact?

No.
