GPU usage variation with 670 SLI

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Hey, I'm having to deal with a problem here, both my GPU's keep the usage at about 60~70% and rarely at 80%+. Is this normal? I tried the last WHQL and using 304.48 atm and the problem persists, can you guys with the 600 series and SLI test for me and check the GPU usage on both? Here are some screenshots I took to show:





My config.

i7 2600k@4.5Ghz
SLI EVGA GTX 670 FTW@stock
2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz DDR3
Asus P8P67 Pro
Corsair AX850
1TB Seagate 7200RPM HDD
HAF 922
Benq XL2420T

Your fist picture shows 97% and the other shows less when less was being rendered on the screen at the moment. I'm sure if you was in a fight it would go up.

What CPU do you have? Could be a bottleneck going on.

I get low usage in Crysis 2 as well. It just drops in some areas and so does the framerate. Even though there should be 80% usage on each GPU with 120fps there is 60% usage and 80 or 90fps. I just chalk it up to being the game, since it's definitely not my CPU bottlenecking them.

It happens in every game that uses SLI, specifically in Battlefield 3. Maybe driver related problem?

As long as you're not getting below 60%-70% usage, I wouldn't worry about it.
And it's pointless to ask something without posting your system specs.
