Hi,

I just got my EVGA GTX 470 and just tried the FFXIV benchmark. I was using MSI Afterburner to check temps and GPU usage during the benchmark. It appears at random, the GPU usage will drop to 0-17% and then spike back up to 80-99%. This has also happened in other benchmarks and Crysis. What could be causing this? Could it be a CPU bottle neck. My CPU was at 90-100% most of the benchmarks and Crysis.

Could be your CPU or more likely it could be a prerendered scene. The more relevant metric is that during those times of reduced GPU usage does the frame rate drop appreciably?

According to the FFXIV benchmark it does look like the score line drops and I do lag up a bit in Crysis. Also, the scenes were not prerendered. My FFXIV benchmark score is only 3000. I feel it should be higher for a GTX 470.
