as the title states, my laptops primary GPU( GTX 1650) is not pulling power when im gaming. i have tried changing power settings aswell as playing around in the nvidia control panel to force the game to use the GPU.
Windows task manager is saying that the game is using the gtx 1650 to render my game, but when using GPU-z it only shows around 20W of power draw and capping at about 6% usage

any help or tips is appreciated

How's the performance of your game? Also what laptop do you have?
