    GPU Usage 40%
    « on: September 08, 2019, 09:56:48 AM »
    First off, my hardware:
    Intel i7 7700
    NVidia GTX 1080
    16 GB Memory
    Gigabyte Z270-Gaming K3
    1TB magnetic drive

    The problem:
    GPU runs @40% resulting in very poor FPS in games like Dragon Quest XI and Final Fantasy XV. I used MSI Afterburner to test this. However, I tried Furmark benchmark and it does hit 97%, somehow.
    Also, I don't know whether related or not, while booting up the system, the dark pre-BIOS screen lingers for 3-4 minutes.

    What I have tried so far:
    Checked the CPU using burn-in - clean.
    Checked the storage using CrystalDiskMark - clean.
    Checked CPU temp - max about 80 Celsius. I also renewed the thermal compound.

    Please tell me if I can provide more info.

    You don't mention what "very poor framerate" means, but that GPU usage would be normal based on the GPU requirements for those games.
    I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

      By "very poor framerate" I mean ~30-40 @1080p/highest. Here you can see I can expect ~140 FPS https://www.techpowerup.com/review/dragon-quest-xi-benchmark-performance-test/4.html

      Just wondering, do you have latest drivers for your hardware? Newer drivers may help with improving computer performance.
