My Gpu gets 99 percent usage, and my gpu gradually was getting hotter and hotter with each minute. Right before I exited it was at 72 for the temp. I put my hand over my case and I felt a lot of hot air coming out of it. Also, when I'm playing this game I can smell my gpu cooking. biggrin.gif

So, is it a good thing or bad thing if gpu is doing 99 percent? Would that mean my cpu is only doing 1 percent of the work or am I wrong?

At first I held off purchasing this game bc of the well known issues. But LC's physical attributes ingame just PUSHED me to buying it biggrin.gif. I'm running ultra with tressFX off and hair set to normal, msi 670 pe clock @ 1075, mem @ 1777. Runs smooth as butter 40-60 fps.

If you're getting 99% GPU usage, your CPU is not holding you back basically.

And no, your CPU is not doing 1% of the work, LOL. I have to head out right now, maybe someone else can expand on your question.

Check out this guide, so you can see both your CPU & GPU usage while gaming.

Oh, and are you using a Fan profile? If you're not, you should set it up.

You should always expect to see at least 99% gpu usage. Anything lower than that and the game isn't taking full advantage of your gpu which could mean your cpu is a bottleneck.

Must be why my cpu usage is at +- 47% and the use of GPU in SLI +- 76%.

Do not talk nonsense.
post #287 of 332
what?

SLI is a whole different beast. I was talking about single cards. Ideally SLI would be able to get better scaling anyways. As in 90-100% per card. There are also other variables that affect gpu usage, ideally you would want the highest usage possible.

I'm not sure how what I wrote was nonsense.

and keep in mind I'm talking about newer games.

If my cpu is fine for gaming, why are people updating their cpus to the newest models? Is it because you guys do other things other than gaming or like to multi-task?
post #289 of 332
Still getting crashes with the beta driver and new game patch frown.gif. I played through the game once with some settings off to avoid crashes, was awesome and itching to play it again. However, trying to fix this so can enjoy it at max for my second playthrough. There any thoughts about those still having the driver crash issues? Sucks having to restart my whole PC every time it goes down.

The thing is, Tomb Raider is GPU limited, the CPU is not the bottleneck, especially since you're getting 99% usage...

Take this as an example of the GPU being the bottleneck, the CPU in this case makes no difference.



When games are more CPU bound, you can clearly see the difference.
