So I feel like I’m the only one having this issue and have stumped even my compsci college professors who I’ve asked. I get high performance from my gpu(3060ti) and mid cpu usage 30-40% on Forza Horizon. However, my gpu usage is never above 1% but in game overlay says gpu usage is close to 90%. My cpu is a 3600x so no integrated graphics, my issue is sometimes my game after playing a while plummets in performance, dropping 60fps and I feel like its due to the game not using my GPU. I’ve updated drivers, dedicated usage to my 3060ti in control panel even though I shouldn’t have to since theres no other gpu in my pc, and even reverted drivers. What possibly could be my issue, 5 bucks to whoever figures it out, I got venmo lol.

In case your talking about the Windows Task Manager, it wont report the correct GPU usage when DirectX 12 is being used it will just show 1-2% normally. Your in game overlay is correct.
