Hello, I recently got a free gpu from a friend who upgraded to a 3080. I received a 1660 ti and decided to replace my 1060 for now, not too much of an upgrade but DDR6 memory and newer nvenc encoder for streaming is a plus I though. I currently am using a Ryzen 5 1600 and 16gb of ram at 2666.
I used DDU to nuke all my drivers before swapping cards to avoid any issues just in case. I cranked the settings up to max preset and my CPU runs at around 50-60% and my GPU runs at 90-99%.
My issues is when I lower the settings to get more fps or less dips in fps (falling to 30-40 during hordes) I don’t see a difference except my GPU usage goes down and sits at 40-50% now. CPU still 50-60% so it’s not a bottleneck right? Why doesn’t lowering the settings increase performance? It just seems to not take advantage of GPU.
This didn’t happen with my 1060 it would always sit at 99% utilization. Any suggestions on a fix? This is running with DX11.
