Hi guys. For some reason I have been getting frame rate issues which is noticeable while playing games and when I move the cursor (it feels pixelated) as of a few weeks ago. I have a 1070 ti and is only displaying roughly 20% usage in HWMonitor which seems low?
Thankyou

Kindly provide PC specs, as much as possible from your side.

-1. "Complete" system specs should ALWAYS be accompanied with any driver, hardware, or performance question. Do not post DXDiag reports as they contain a TON of useless information.

Please supply the following system details/information:

(Complete System Specs)
-CPU make and model# (clock speed/voltage, type of cooler, and "Core" temperature @ idle and load)
-Motherboard make & model# (include Bios version if graphics card is not recognized or you are having stability issues)
-RAM (amount, clock speed, model#/link of kit, configuration)
-Graphics card(s) make and model# (clock speed, voltage if modified, Driver version and GPU temp both @ idle and load)
-Power supply make,model#, "AND" age (note if using 110V or 220V A/C input)
-HDD/SSD configuration (ie: Raid setup/ back up/ OS drive/etc..)
-Case/Chasis make,model# (fan make, model#, and configuration if having thermal issues)
-Operating System (If using Windows note Framework and service pack version)
-Monitor make, model#, and resolution (If model# is unknown list resolution and refresh rate)

*If the unit is a "laptop" or "All-in-one" system you must note the make and model# of the unit. Be sure you are ALWAYS using the OEM/manufacturer's Driver updates for the unit.

*If "Crashing":
-Note the nature of the "crash" in detail, as there are several definitions for the word "crash".

*If "performance" related issue:
-Note the "exact" point in which the performance reduction occurred (ie: After Windows update, After Bios update, After Driver update, After thermal system shutdown, After Hardware change/upgrade etc...)

*For diagnostic purposes please disable the following:
-Any/all Antivirus/ Anti-malware software
-Any/all OSD monitoring software
-ALL overclocks outside of factory spec
.

Okay, specs seem to be fine. First of all, make sure your system is fully updated, including the OS, drivers, BIOS etc. If need be, do a FRESH install of the OS, and the GPU driers. Before continuing further, can you list all names of the PC GAME titles, in which you are getting Low GPU usage/FPS issues ? If the game is less graphic demanding, then it won't put too much load on the GPU.

Run any synthetic benchmark on your system, and then check/compare the scores with others having a similar RIG (Heaven UNIGINE 3DMARK etc.).

There are other causes as well, for this low GPU usage.. Kindly wait, I will respond back with some solution. In the meantime, other FORUM members might be able to guide you.
