Weird GPU usage

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a gtx 570, and i only saw the gpu usage at 99% all time in one game : BFBC2, it stays always on 99%, in other games like Black Ops, Mass Effect 2 it stays 40-50%. And with 60-90% of GPU usage i only saw Just Cause 2, getting 35-40 fps.
I say thats wird because yesterday, when i was playing Just Cause 2, i'v got really confused about this, because i did the benchmark, just for fun, and notice that the gpu usage stayed on 99%, and my fps really goes up, normally i make 39-42 fps on this benchmark, but yesterday i'v got 58, witch is really high for a gtx 570.
Today i was expecting the same, but nope, the gpu usage stayed at 60-90%, not even at one second it goes to 99%.
Another weird thing is that when i lower the AA, to 4x, or 8x, the fps stays the same, but the gpu usage goes down to 50-70%.
Could someone tell me why? And can i force the gpu usage to 99% in all games?
Here is a photo of benchmark.

i am guessing that you have a CPU bottleneck

if the GPU isn't at 99%... it normally reperents a CPU bottle neck...

try ocing you CPU and see if the FPS and the usage% goes up...

if it does... then it is a CPU bottleneck..

if not... make sure you have the latest drivers...

also try you GPU at stock clocks if it is OCed

i have oced my processor to 3,3 ghz, and actually the only game that have an increase of fps (gpu usage no) was Black Ops, that before i made the OC it stutters a lot.
