[SOLVED] Reverse of expected bottleneck in CS:GO with 1070 and 2400G

I'm new, so apologies if this is the wrong place to post.

I have a GTX 1070 founders and Ryzen 5 2400G. I'd expect the CPU to be the bottleneck in that setup, but in CS:GO my GPU is at around 70% load while my processor is working significantly less hard. This would seem to be the opposite bottleneck that would be expected from my setup. I can usually get between 100-120fps (more than enough with a 60hz monitor) but there are occasional drops--with my luck, always at the worst possible moment ;)

Is there any reason this might be the case?
 
Don’t monitor total cpu usage, measure each core/thread. I believe CSGO can only use 4 threads so you probably have 4 threads sitting at very low usage and 4 at very high/100%. This will make total usage look low while some threads are at max.
