Low GPU usage, is it normal?

Hi !
I have a 5k with i7-8700, evga 2080 rtx, RAM 16go, and I got a strange gpu usage while on games…

It goes from 60% to 80% for GPU usage. Is it normal ?

If your game fps reach 90, is normal.

It doesn’t ^^ I am playing Pcars 2…

you only get 95-99% in a really small amount of games

I was used to get around 95% with my Vive. It seems strange that the GPU doesn’t hit such numbers with the Pimax… What is limiting ?

It depends on game, settings, game situation and if you have brainwarp on. Do you have powersetting in nvidia control panel on max?

Yes, I put 130%. (20char)

If brainwarp is on it’s normal. When the gpu can’t handle 90fps it goes at 45 and then your GPU usage is limited.

it’s off.
Power goes up to 80%
Ram usage is round 5,3GO

Yes this is normal, it depends on the game. Even with Branwarp off I dont get 100% GPU usage in most games. Im not sure on the exact reason but presume something else must be limiting before the GPU in these instances such as CPU or RAM. A similar thing can usually be noticed whereby CPU usage of any 1 core is not necessarily 100% but still can limit frametimes and hence framerate.

Strange things… I got an i7-8700, it doesn’t go above 50%…

Could @PimaxVR give an advice ? :slight_smile:
