Before I explain what is happening, here are my PC Specs
  • CPU:Intel Core i7-12700KF 12-Core 3.60 GHz
  • GPU:GeForce® RTX™ 4080
  • RAM:Team T-FORCE Delta RGB 3200 MHz (max speed) 32 GB (2 x 16 GB)
  • Storage:Western Digital Blue SN570 NVMe M.2 SSD 1 TB
  • PSU: XPG Core Reactor, 850W, 80+ Gold
I am only getting around 130-170 FPS in Warzone 2 at 1080p max settings, whereas online, I see people with similar builds and 4080 getting 200+ FPS for 1080p. My CPU utilization is only around 3-6% and my GPU around 60% max during play.

What is happening? Similar issues with other games. Like GTA 5. Online youtube video shows them getting 180 max settings...and I am 150.

Go to userbenchmark.com and run the test. Link the results here after.

Care to further go into detail with that? Monitor it how? What am I looking for?
Hwinfo, let it run in the background. It shows the current, minimum, max, and average values.
P-core Usage, 0 through 7. See how high they get, or hang around. There's going to be one that gets higher than the others - that's the primary core.
You can double click each one to make a graph appear, but that's a pain with hyperthreaded cores.

Afterburner works too. Let it run in the background.
Gotta go into settings > monitoring, check 1-16 core usage, expand the graph columns to 2/3/4, whichever is comfortable for you, click apply, exit settings, and detach the monitoring window.
Then you can see all P-cores assembled in a graph.

You should really get much better results. You have a very capable machine after all.

I doubt it's the RAM or the monitor.

Have you tried other games? Maybe other games will have results that are in line with your rig. And try single shooters and not just multiplayer games and see what you get.

One game's result cannot and shouldn't be the final decision on your PC.

I tried GTA and I was only getting 150 compared to online videos getting 180-200

What MB are you using? Most, if not all, MBs need to be set to use the XMP profile for your ram and to activate ReBar. They also boost your CPU past the advertized speeds. Might not be it but if XMP or ReBar are not set then do it, free performance
