Firstly, my system:
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600 stock
Mobo: MSI B450M Mortar
GPU: Zotac RTX 2060
RAM: Some unknown model, 1x8GB DDR4 2400MHz

So in a lot of games such as Fortnite, Battlefield V and GTA 5, my GPU doesn’t hit full GPU boost and almost never passes above 70% GPU usage. I have read that Ryzen really favours faster, dual channel memory and was just wondering if someone could confirm that the GPU usage issues are arising from this.

I have borrowed this RAM temporarily from a friend as I save up for better RAM. I just don’t want to upgrade RAM and still have these issues and would love to have some confirmation.

Battlefield 5 runs a higher cpu usage. i7 8700k 5ghz is 15-20% higher than my 2080 ti usage. The gpu is usually around 45-55% usage ultra and high settings. 144 fps.
