Hello, I have been faced with an issue I have not been able to resolve. I would like my GPU to run at maximum or close to maximum load on every game I play. I have a 60hz monitor, so I am not looking to get more fps than 60, but in some games my GPU load is really low, and so is my FPS. I feel like if my GPU would just work harder and use more of a load I could get up to my wanted 60fps, but I don't know how to force it to use more of its power to give me more fps.
Here is an example of my low fps with low gpu load.
As you can see I am only getting 25fps w/ a gpu load of only 27% and a temperature of 45c. My CPU is only at 36% with its temerature is at 53c (CPUID says its at 37c, but the TMPIN2 is the one that seems to be the right temperature.) My physical memory is only at 4.2gb out of 8gb.
If you look at my Clock Speed you can see its current clock is at 1032 with an estimated max of 1150. With such low fps and all the extra power to spare, why doesnt my gpu use more of its assets to get me more fps?
Neverwinter was just the example I decided to show you, it does this for other games as well.
My drivers are up to date.
"Preferred Maximum Performance" is on in Nvidia Control Panel.
