GPU usagae 80-84% when folding

I monitor my GPUs when I'm folding using MSI Afterburner.

At first I was concerned about temperature. I started looking at the other metrics and noted that the usage ranges between 80-84%. Is this normal?

I haven't installed water blocks yet, but my GPU temperatures only run about 70C.

I have the latest drivers and version of [email protected] 2x Titan Xp's, 5960X, ASUS X99 Deluxe II, 64GB DDR4, Windows 10

I normally get 99% with my Titan Xps. What's your TDP look like?

You could try increasing target power/temp and see if that helps. If that doesn't make a difference you may need to do what I had to do when I had my AMD cards. I had an odd clock/usage issue with folding at home after a driver update. I ended up having to remove my over clocking software and the drivers, then run DDU and install drivers.

I don't know if that's an issue that has come up for Nvidia cards, I haven't run into it yet at least.

If you do get DDU you may want to check before you download the new version. I heard a rumour that the newest possibly has malware in it. Saw it on Reddit earlier but haven't looked into it more.

I'm letting my cards run "stock". Even adjusting power/temp up doesn't make an impact. 110% or even 120% power doesn't change anything that I can tell.

Apologies if its a noob question, but whats DDU?

display driver uninstaller. just reinstalling drivers over an older version sometimes causes issues but I don't really think it'd be the cause of your issue.

is it just one WU or is it all of them?

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)

Display Driver Uninstaller as said above.

I have had issues with my Titans running stuff after a major Windows update and have had to to a clean install of drivers using DDU.

Next question is similar to above. Is it just one type of WU or is it all of them?

I haven't noticed a difference with SLI on or off so it shouldn't matter. You can try turning it off though.

I'd just start making a list of WUs you get and what % your gpus are running at and see if it's just the work units themselves not being demanding on your GPUs.

Some WU's give me another 2-3% usage, but not enough to get excited about. I'll keep track and see if the WU makes a major impact.

If not, I will have to carve out some time reinstalling drivers using DDU.

What else is running on your CPU? Make sure that each GPU gets its own CPU thread.

By chance make sure its running PCI-E v3.0 and not 2.0. Unlikely but that would reduce PPD by starving the GPUs a bit.

My 1080 Ti is doing the same thing on a 9431. I'm gonna watch other WUs and see if the results are the same.

I'm pretty sure its not my CPU. I'm running a 6950X, so there are more than enough threads to go around.

I am definitely seeing WU variation, but I haven't cracked 90% utilization.
