I have been recently experiencing low GPU usage and getting less frames than normal.

This is my benchmark test: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/47090420

I am currently using a Ryzen 5 5600X and a 3060ti - https://rog.asus.com/us/graphics-cards/graphics-cards/rog-strix/rog-strix-rtx3060ti-o8g-gaming-model/ - https://www.microcenter.com/product/630285/amd-ryzen-5-5600x-vermeer-37ghz-6-core-am4-boxed-processor-with-wraith-stealth-cooler

I have 32 gb of ram (4x8) and it was performing in the 10th percentile. I used to get 100-90% gpu usage and then it suddenly dropped to 30% without warning.
Almost my entire pc is underperforming and I am looking for some guidance. Any help would be appreciated.

no worries
I'm stilling getting very little Gpu usage in game though... around 30-40%. And then there's the occasionally 100% spikes in task manager. Is this normal? It happens while running minecraft with high shaders which mainly is using one core that is reaching 100% frequently. Bottleneck?
I also run valorant which gets around 50% usage on average, but it seems to go to 100% spike, then go down and spike back up again. I'm not sure if this is normal or not.
Never reaching 90-100% percent gpu usage not matter what game it is.

Respectable
I cant imagine the 5600X is bottlenecking your 3060ti, it's a very capable cpu but I am unsure what is causing your issues? Hopefully someone more experienced can jump in and advise you further. Good luck!
