Sparkle x580 w/ low GPU usage and FPS

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So I just upgraded to a 1090t and 8gb 1866 cl9 and for some reason MSI afterburner is showing my 580 only at 35-50% usage in Rift. Also my FPS have dropped noticably down into the 20s even when I am out by myself leveling. I am running the newest nVidia drivers, and really cant think of any reason my rig started doing this. When I had my 965 OC to 3.9 I was getting 60-70 FPS and now with the 1090 20s? Could it be my proc or do i have a gpu issue??

thanks

Make sure you OC that 1090T else you'll have bottleneck on that GTX580.

overclock that 1090t, you may have more cores but they are clocked less chances are that the rift engine isnt using all 6 so you have more benifit from a higher clock vs core count.

i dont own rift so i cant say it is this for sure, but from your description it seems like it would be, i see similar things in other games where the fps gain i get is from cpu oc's rather than gpu's all depends on the engine.

May be drivers related, I run at 30 FPS on Dragon Age 2 @ 2560x1600, with TWO GTX 580 in SLI, go figure out.

Grab the latest drivers from here. If that doesn't fix it, slap a nice OC on your processor (do this anyway). If that doesn't work, probably Rift not playing well with six core processors..even though it probably doesn't play well with them anyway they are clocked slow..

Anyways, few things to try.

So I took your advice and I have overclocked my CPU to 3.93 and I have been stable for a week. However, I am still hovering around 50% gpu usage in all games, not just Rift. Also I was running the newest 270 drivers when this first started happening. I plan on rolling back to the 266 drivers tomorrow and seeing if this has any change.

Any other ideas to try??

Thanks again for the help.

Increase the gpu demand (force higher settings in the nv control panel).

It seems like every other day people are complaining about low GPU usage with various online games they're playing.

I'm beginning to think that graphics cards have a propensity to be bottlenecked by ... the internet.

Either that, or there's some type of framerate limiter in the game, or you're running v-sync.
