Hello,

I've recently started to use EVGA Precision X (great tool by the way!) and I've noticed something strange with my GTX 680 (maybe that's how all the video cards work? I don't know, so I got to ask!).

For an example, I've been playing this game called TERA and whenever there's too much characters, spells or whatever on the screen the GPU load/usage goes super low (like less then 10%) and then my FPS starts to suffer greatly. It's as if the card couldn't render all those 3D models and would go into a "**** it, I'm out!" mode, like the card is giving up.

Is that normal? I've noticed the same behavior in other games, where the GPU load would start dropping in high populated area just to go back to normal whenever there's less stuff to render.

Is that supposed to be like this? How does the GPU load work anyway?

Thanks!

ps. Sorry for bad english redface.gif
