I have a ryzen 9 3900x and a rx 6900 xt. neither of them ever reach 100% usage. cpu hits 40% max and gpu hits 70-80% max. lowering quality and resolution does not increase fps.

Some games do not scale well with multiple cores. On a 12C/24T processor, if the game is only using 8 threads, it'll appear to have low CPU utilization. If you switched over to say a Ryzen 5 or 3, you'll see the CPU utilization go up because there's fewer cores to handle those threads.

The reason you don't see an FPS increase when lowering the quality and resolution is the maximum FPS you can achieve is solely based on the CPU. The game still has to run all the logic, input handling, etc. before the CPU can send stuff to the GPU to do. If you already hit that wall at say high settings, lowering the quality won't magically make that wall shift.

Some games do not scale well with multiple cores and what you're seeing is it hit the maximum thread count and it's relying on single core performance at that point.

Is there anything i can do besides replacing my cpu.
