Hey guys,

My RIG:

HDD: 4tb WD
SSD: 1TB NVMe Samsung 970 pro
MOB: ASUS TUF X570
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X @ 4.3ghz
GPU: MSI TRIO X RTX 3080
RAM: 4 x 8gb sticks (32gb) DDR4 Corsair Vengeance 3600Mhz running @3600mhz
OS: Windows 10 pro x64bit
Monitor: 144Hz 1440p 32" Curved Asus ROG Strix 1ms response

So I recently upgraded from a 1080ti with the same set-up otherwise, and am having some trouble. PUBG is my main game that I play (2600hrs so far) and the 3080 is not performing to the standard that I want.

Before, I was getting 120fps avg @100% GPU usage with the 1080ti on comp settings at 1440p. Now, I am getting about the same, maybe a little higher at 30-50% usage. I know whatever, I'm getting pretty high fps and whatnot, but I want 144fps continuous even in high load areas.

Now I've tried going to high load areas and I'm getting roughly 60-110fps at 40-60% usage. Other stats are averaging at about:
CPU usage 20-40%, temp 70ish degrees Celsius. GPU 70ish degrees Celsius (Max 83 apparently). RAM 11GB (30%), Disk anywhere between 10 and 100%.

I have Windows 10 on my SSD as well as PUBG.

I have used Heaven benchmark at 1440p epic settings and get a score of about 6000 with GPU at 100% the entire time.

If I uncap the lobby framerate on PUBG the GPU will run at 100% and give me about 2000fps lol.

I have downloaded and done clean installs for graphics drivers, amd chipset driver, bios update, and as a last resort conducted a clean install of windows 10 and all the updates. Still, I am having the exact same problem.

For now I am not OC anything, to rule out any OC issues, though I did try OCing both GPU and CPU to fix the issue. I have tried turning up the graphics to Ultra to increase the load but It remains at a small percentage and doesn't increase the FPS. I have tried capping and uncapping the FPS ingame. I have tried a fresh install of PUBG (at the same time I did the Windows clean install). I tried pulling apart my computer and rebuilding it in case it was a loose connection gremlin. I tried older versions of graphics drivers, as well as the studio drivers.

I have tried many of the fixes on forums that help some people such as changing the power mode to maximum performance and the NVIDIA power management mode as well.

I have made sure my RAM is running at 3600mhz in the bios.

Please help.

Update
It was the RAM in the end. Did a quick userbenchmark and found that the RAM was reverting back to 2133 MHz speed, because DOCP wasn't enabled.. my bad

Maybe the 1080 ti was enough horsepower for 1440p comp settings in PUBG. Do you get less fps on ultra graphics settings?

No, about the same FPS at ultra, small increase in GPU usage.
Yeah the 1080 ti could do pretty much the same as the 3080 atm but it was at 100 percent usage, where the 3080 is at 50 percent. The only problem is that I want constant 144fps. The 1080ti had a Min of 80 fps and a Max of 144 (capped). The 3080 is running a min of 100 and a Max of 144, but sitting at 50 percent. When uncapped, the fps jumps to 200 in some areas and still down to 100 in others, but still not going over 60% usage.

20 more min isn't bad I guess. Maybe it's the game though if it depends more on the CPU. I guess you should determine if your graphics card is performing similarly to other 3080s or if there is something wrong.

Post more game samples - different games.
After all this time, the devs don't appear to have done anything to that game(PUBG) other than add more in game purchases...

Do a userbenchmark and post the URL link too.
