Low GPU usage under load. - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I'ts definately a CPU bottleneck for you. I had an E8400 and a Q9350 and neither of them were able to get my GPU up to 99% load while playing BC2. Also, BC2 is able to leverage up to 4 cores if i am not mistaken (but don't quote me on this) and the destructive environment places a heavy load on your CPU.

I had a Q9350 and a GTX 580 and my GPU load was hovering around 70% - 80%. After upgrading to my 2600K I gained about 30 - 40FPS in BC2 and my GPU is pegged at 99% constantly (unless im in a loading screen or on the main menu).

So yes, I would definately say that your CPU is a bottleneck.
