Hello everyone! I've been having a problem for the last few months about GPU usage. Suddenly I'm playing at let's say, 100 FPS, and out of nowhere the gpu usage will drop from 90-100% to 10%. Here are my specs:
(From userbenchmarks)
CPU: Intel Core i7-6700HQ - 56.3%
GPU: Nvidia GTX 970M - 30.3%
RAM: Micron 16ATF1G64HZ-2G1B1 2x8GB - 58.1%
MBD: Alienware 15 R2
Full report here
Now, I don't think this is a CPU bottleneck because the CPU always remains low (<50%). Additionally, this happens on every game. I was thinking it could be thermals, what is your take on this? Any input would be appreciated!
