Hello i have an issue. My cpu usage is higher than my GPU when i game. (RTX 3060 ti, i5 11400f) My cpu is usually around 90-100% and gpu at around 15%. both are usually at mid 60 to 70 C temperature. Games played like cyberpunk, bf5, ac valhalla. Everything on max settings 1080p. Ive tried reinstalling my gpu drivers and no change.

So i used afterburner stats and it shows different values than task manager. I used task manager previous. Now with afterburner its 90% gpu and 50-60% cpu. Why is there a mismatch between afterburner and task manager?
