GPU Usage - is this right?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My GPU2 usage is always about 15% higher then GPU1.

Is this normal?

e.g. GPU2 runs at 87%
and GPU1 runs at 70%

probably. It depends on how your machine is set up.

Depends on the game really. What game are you playing?

it could also be as simple as which cards your monitors are plugged into. I wouldn't worry about it. No matter what you are playing there will always be some processes that can't be shared across sli. Sometimes whole games ignore sli entirely and its like you are playing on a single card with increased memory.

different game, different usage. could even be some new crap running in the background. There's a tiny tiny chance you got zombied and someone is grinding bitcoins on your machine or something. Running regular virus checks is just a good idea generally though.
