Question 100% usage but only 3gb out of 6gb used on my GPU

It is possible due to the fact that VRAM utilization is game dependent, and not GPU dependent.

Meaning that when game is coded to use 3 GB of VRAM, it won't ever use more, even if you have loads of VRAM, e.g 24 GB. Game still uses up to 3 GB.

Now, if you'd be short of VRAM, e.g game needs 8 GB of VRAM but your GPU only has 6 GB of VRAM, then you'll take performance hit when playing a game. Either lowered in-game graphics or lower FPS.

Vram holds the video code you need to run the game.
The game manages it and probably does not need more .
A more worrying stat is the 100% gpu utilization.
It indicates that your game is limited in performance by the gpu.
Or, that the gpu has a problem.

If your game performance is good, do not worry.
If you think it is lacking, tell us more about the game and all of your pc specs.
