Question GPU Throttling / Choking usage

Essentially, the more GPU intensive the area, the lower my GPU usage goes, in easy to render areas, such as areas at sea or staring directly at skyboxes, my GPU usage maxes out at 99% utilisation and my FPS surpasses 200 easily. However, when in dense areas that are populated with AI, enemies, buildings and other structures, my GPU usage drops down to 30-50% and my FPS goes below 90.

Temperatures range from 55-65 on both my CPU and GPU.

My GPU is not overclocked, my power limit and temp limits are both maxxed.

GPU-Z only returns VRel in PerfCap Reason (which means the GPU can not boost any higher than it's current clock without being unstable.)

Titles this occurs in:
  • DOOM
  • Dishonored 2
  • Far Cry New Dawn
  • Borderlands 2
Specs:

i7-7700k @ 4.8GHz
GA-Z270-HD3
CL16 2666MHz DDR4
ASUS Strix 1080 Ti

What resolution?
What graphics quality settings?
Online or offline?

It's fairly normal for any PC to be able to crank out higher frame rates for easier to render scenes.
Higher frames in low-intensity areas are a given, however low GPU usage in graphically intensive scenes is not.
