So I recently bought a new ASUS gaming laptop, and I noticed that when I play games (namely RDR2) my CPU utilization is at a constant 100% while my GPU utilization hovers around 50-60%. It's such a shame to see my nice 1660ti wasted like this, especially as I could have opted for a 1050 and it seems I would have gotten the exact same performance. Any tips or tricks on how to even these out? The gpu is a 1660ti and the cpu is a Ryzen 7 3750h.

Lower your expectations, it's a laptop after all.

There is a way but i dont think its applicable to you...
at 1080p cpu load is high but as u go for resolutions higher than 1080p, the dependence on gpu increases;
