Issue Description:
[Please include your minimum and maximum FPS, and think about when your performance is at it’s worst - is it during any particular event or location? (Please include a screenshot if your issue is location-based)]

I gain around 60-50 fps and have drops to 40-30 fps in hordes.

I’ve noticed that the game does not use my gpu it is saying it uses a gpu copy in task manager

this does not happen for any other game for example Vermintide 2 uses my gpu

I am wondering if it is because the game is not optimized enough or is it my system. I have tried everything said online and nothing has worked. if the game is not optimized yet I am completely ok with waiting for a fix because this is the only issue I have and I am thoroughly enjoying the game. hope we can find a fix :slight_smile:

I have tried setting darktide to high preformance in windows settings updating and reinstalling my drivers, putting all settings to low and looked at other post for solutions but nothing has worked.

i also dont have intergrated graphics enabled in my NVIDIA control panel.
