Msi Geforce Gtx 1070 Gaming X 8G running 99% usage

Hi I was looking to find a resolution to my gpu running at around 99% all the time while running gta v on max graphics. When I run the game on lowest settings the gpu is still at 70% usage. I am new to computers so if I left any important details out please let me know! My friends can run same game and specs on a gtx 660 thats runs with 70% usage. Just reinstalled gta v and completely removed the gpu and replaced and still having issue of average 50fps and minimum 31 fps. Thanks!

  1. I see no problem. When you lowered the settings the usage droped like it should of. Their nothing wrong with it running full usage.

    But shouldn't I be receiving better fps than an average of 50 while playing, and lowest fps of 31?

    There is no problem on 99% usage. The card will always try to max out the FPS, that's why. Don't worry. About your FPS, what resolution are you playing? Try turning off anti-aliasing, it tends to reduce the FPS and you won't notice it if you are playing at 1440p or so.
  4. 99% usage is normal with any graphics card. It produces as many frames as possible. Try limiting the FPS, then you should see the drop in GPU usage. If GPU usage is not above 90% you should worry about CPU as it may be bottle necking the gpu.
