Question Low FPS in Warzone

I have unusually low fps in COD: Warzone, with it hovering around 100-110 fps. With my build, I feel that I should be getting 140-180 fps on low settings except high texture and 1080p 100% resolution scale, as well as default POV.

My Specs:
CPU: i5-9400f
GPU: 1070 TI Duke (8 GB)
RAM: 16 GB G.Skillz DDR4 3200 Mhz Ram (14-14-14-34) X.M.P. ENABLED
MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte Z390 UD
STORAGE: 1 TB HDD

Using MSI Afterburner, my CPU and GPU temps are completely normal. Interestingly, my CPU usage is always 100% in task manager when I play whether graphics are on low or maximum. I have tried DDU, updating BIOS, enabling X.M.P., overclocking GPU, optimizing NVIDIA control panel, and repairing windows using /scannow. It may be possible that the 9400f is slightly bottlenecking the GPU, but I should still be receiving more than 100-110 fps on low graphics.

1)The i5-9400F is a 6 thread cpu. It is not hyperthreaded like the 9900K or 10600K are, for example.
2)CoD: Warzone can use up to 12 cpu threads.
3)Intel's non-hyperthreaded cpus suffer from high frame time spikes when all their threads are loaded, reducing performance and can cause stuttering.

As Phaaze notes, there's a big difference in how this title performs based on cores/threads. Just 4/4 to 4/8 is a suprisingly large difference.



Limiting a 9900k to four threads from eight threads cost around 40 fps.
