I'm getting usage spikes as high as 100% just from just moving, opening, minimizing, or maximizing, windows around the desktop.
It will get spikes of 5% as high as 100%
 
Closing a window like a browser window spikes a 100% GPU usage in Taskman
 
Is this normal?
 
Never had this happen on older cards.

What monitor...curious if its a 4K....as Ive seen this before with 4K.....
- Have you tried a reboot PC
- Runing MSI AB or other 3rd party OC'ing software (disable)
-look for "Adaptive mode" in nvcp
- once youve exhausted everything..did it do this on prior Driver?
- Clean install Driver....

Can you give more details on the matter like they () have given about it?

Thanks,
Monitor is Dell E207WFP 1680x1050 (Using Temporarily until my my new ones get here) I no longer have my old ones.
I've rebooted several times.
No AB or PX1, just Taskmanager
NVCP setting is "Optimal Power"
It did not do this on prior driver with GX780 (I installed the new driver with 2080) This could be it. I'll check it out.
I appreciate the support, thanks.

I just upgraded from:
GTX780 SC Driver 417.35 to
RTX2080 XC2 Ultra Driver 417.71
 
I uninstalled Nvidia drivers, and unistalled the 780 from Device Manager, shut down the PC and installed the 2080, and drivers.
 
Anytime I do small desktop related actions, like web browser, or just settings window.
If I Move, Close, Minimize, Maximize the window taskmanager reports 3D GPU usage spikes as high as 100%
 
Here is what taskman looks like when I restore taskman after it being minimized.
 

 
 
Here is what it looks like when I close Firefox

Spiking to 100% isn't normal at all. 5% seems to be normal.

Want to save 5 to 10% on your next EVGA purchase? Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

If you clicked on the GPU tab it would reorder the display so we could see which process was loading the GPU 100%...

Can you try going back to previous Driver and try it.....?
When you uninstalled the Driver along with uninstalling from Device Manager did you run CCU / CCleaner clean Registry etc.....
.....its all I can really think of....what Programs are in your Startup ?

When the GPU is downclocked to low clocks for idle desktop usage, its easier to peg to GPU usage briefly and intermittently. 5% GPU usage is very common. Intermittent 20% GPU usage at idle clocks isn't abnormal. 100%? Well, I am not sure about that, but it might not be abnormal for the browser, website(s) being viewed, your very low monitor resolution (which encourages the GPU to stay at low clocks and spike GPU usage instead of intermittently spiking up clocks at a lower GPU usage), and the "Optimal Power" setting.

NVCP setting is "Optimal Power"

If you changed that setting to "Prefer maximum performance" (which I don't necessarily recommend for any reason other than troubleshooting), I think you would see lower GPU usage spikes, but the GPU would not maintain as low of an idle frequency and use more power intermittently.

You have some Bitcoin Mining Malware on you computer running your GPU in the background.
 
Id run some trusted malware/anti-virus programs, malwarebytes etc.
 
Maybe for safety sake, you may want to just go ahead and backup, reinstall windows from scratch.

GPU tab is active, the problem is that the spike is so fast I can only screen capture that very moment, it never shows what process is causing it if any.
Probably spike for half a second maybe

Can you try going back to previous Driver and try it.....?


I think I will do this tonight or this weekend, I think it's either the drivers, the card or both.

as it never did this with GTX780 and previous driver. I also did not notice this with the Win10 1809 update.

You have some Bitcoin Mining Malware on you computer running your GPU in the background.

If this is the case, then either Nvidia or EVGA put there, joking..

Only thing different since this started is GPU, and Drivers.


I stopped using malwarebytes a long time ago when I installed a fresh OS never went online.

I installed Malwarebytes it said exactly the same thing as it did on every computer, you have 24 malware programs or whatever it said I can't remember,

but it was blatantly fake. then proceeded to clean the nonexistent programs. but each their own.

I don't use malware programs, but I practice safe internet.


Even though I do plan on reinstalling windows at some point, I don't think it solves the problem, it just gets rid of any problem that may exist.



I'm going to have to try the drivers first, then maybe try the old gpu with new drivers.

Monitors will not be here for another week or so, back ordered.

I just wanted to add this.
 
I set at idle doing nothing I set at 1% CPU, 1% GPU
If I move the mouse the windows manger uses like 16% GPU

Again, I don't think that is abnormal for your low resolution and "Optimal Power" setting.

Still seems weird that the GTX780 and this same monitor stayed at 0%

Changing the 3D setting for "Power Management Mode" has no effect on it...

Still doing this with 2 new ASUS VG278Q monitors.
Most everyone I talk to has the same thing going on, so I guess it's normal.

I did a secure erase on my SSD, and Installed Windows 10 1809 latest.
Installed Chipset Drivers, and Nvidia Drivers.
Still exists...
 
BTW I did not reinstall windows due to this, it was just time to do it.

Did you ever solve this?

I am seeing a very similar situation with a 1080 card (while I await notification on a 3080).
 
A couple of times a week my computer freezes.  Before it it totally gone, I can see the task manager showing 100% GPU.  There are no processes showing any usage when this happens.

Anyone with this issue running SLI?  Some applications don't know how to handle the configuration.  i.e. DX12.  There might be times you sit at 100% GPU in games simply because in optimization, SLI was completely overlooked :points at self: me being one of them.  My only work around is to run DX 11 legacy in those games.

To start troubleshooting this one, I'd go into safe mode and see how the GPU is acting without hooks into the operating system.
