Low gpu usage in games(gtx 560 ti 448)

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Anyone have any idea why? In games like skyrim, batman, mw2, and waw, i always get around only 30-70% gpu usage no matter what settings. On battlefield 3 though, its always around 99%. Is this just a driver issue i hope? Im on the 285.66 beta drivers. Ive also tried the 290 beta(i think) and still not very high usage.

Any ideas?

maybe non of those games are maxing out the 560ti at the settings your using. I would think this since MW2 and Batman are no BF3 lol what is WAW?

try running a graphics benchmark such as Uningine Heaven and report back on what happens.

I figure those games are more CPU intensive than GPU like BF3.. how's your CPU usage in those games? My GPU usage is nearly 99% when playing BF3, but definitely lower when playing games like SC2

Don't know about skyrim but sc2 = cpu intensive
Batman AC you prob have to raise settings and also turn on msaa (8x), dx 11 and hbao in order to crank up the video usage.
You can't do this in game. you have to goto where ur batman is installed, and open up BmLauncher.
If you have windows 7 its should be
C:/Program Files (x86)/WB Games/ Batman Arkham City/Binaries/Win32/BmLauncher

Sometimes when I'm playing wow I don't getting 99% usage but when I play more gpu intensive games I get 99 like bf3 or just running heaven so I think you're fine

EDIT: yah i get like 66% when I play wow but when I'm on bf3 i get 99
