Skyrim low GPU/CPU usage and low FPS?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
The game was using less than two full cores with 31 percent GPU usage and 28 FPS.
The game is poorly multi-threaded?

While the game has telling signs of being a console port (no vsync option in game...really?) your issue must be with your system. Even after maxing out every option in game and forcing AA (it's broken in game, only FXAA works) I don't get fps that low. Reinstall your drivers.

This game clearly relies on CPU power, and you need a Sandy Bridge-based Core i3 at 3 GHz or a Phenom II at 3.5 GHz to provide a minimum 30 FPS. Bear in mind that we're using the ultra detail setting here, and processing requirements drop significantly as you start stepping back

That it does...
It relies heavily on CPU power because less than a core is used to feed the graphics card.
