I'll check tonight, but I will also try setting the client to 6 cores.

I dont know if AMD GPUs also got new advmethods but in the past folding on an AMD GPU is going to draw a lot of your CPU power. Nvidia has always been optimized for folding with little CPU draw. I usually see .3-.5% for normal WUs and about .1% for the new advmethods
