twwixI am getting severe frame drops whenever my GPU usage goes above 90% usage in games. Temps are ok. 40-50's degrees Celsius according MSI Afterburner. Same goes for the CPU temps. I have tried different drivers to no avail. I always use DDU before installing new drivers. Hell. I even reinstalled Windows earlier this year since this has been happening for a while now. It's happening across a wide variety of games that i play whenever the GPU usage goes that high. I can't even maintain 60 fps in any of them when the GPU usage is that high. I am GPU bound in most of my games. Not sure if it's the card of if there's something else to blame. Any help would be appreciated! Cheers!

twwixIt happens on almost every game that's GPU bound and hits that percentile. Usually around 95% and my frame rate continues to drop to low double digits until the GPU usage drops beneath that threshold. Something you'd usually see if you're CPU bound and reaching 100% but i am not. My CPU usage is usually way below the GPU usage in most of the titles i play. Including open world ones. What games? Ranging from Red Dead Redemption 2 to Hitman 2, No Man's Sky. Just to name a few from my recent sessions. Whether it's Directx 11/12 or Vulkan. Lowering GPU intensive settings? Well. Yeah. But what's the point if i am still hitting that percentile and the frame drops associated with it. I am still playing on 1080p and always have Vsync on yet my GPU is getting hammered. I was GPU bound on my old set up too but never have run into these kind of issues before.
HeavyHemi @1080p, you should not be GPU bound for the most part. How about running 3DMark so we have a comparison and something to look at?
aka_STEVE_b(1st ) Turn OFF Vsync What monitor are you using ?
twwix aka_STEVE_b(1st ) Turn OFF Vsync What monitor are you using ? Why would i turn off Vsync? So the GPU can draw more power? Screen tearing? Thanks for your advice!
However, if you come to a graphically intense moment, and the frame rate drops below the refresh rate, the graphics card will drop it down further to best match the monitor’s preferences. The result is an even bigger drop in frame rate during intense moments.
(Q) Can Vsync increase fps?No, Vsync cannot increase the frame per second. It does the exact opposite. As we know, vertical Sync or Vsync works by waiting for a complete frame to render before projecting it on the screen. Therefore, it reduces the frame rate to match the refresh rate of your screen.

As far as i know that thing comes with a price tag these days. aka_STEVE_b(1st ) Turn OFF Vsync What monitor are you using ? Why would i turn off Vsync? So the GPU can draw more power?

HeavyHemiWell yes, when you're approaching full GPU utilization, your FPS will go down. It cannot go up. You called it: You're GPU bound. I have a 1080 Ti, I'm GPU bound. The only real help besides reducing settings, is upgrading. If you gave us a better idea of the games and what settings that would help.
