First of all, my specs: CPU: Intel i5 6600k (stock) Cooling: Bequiet Silent Loop 120 AIO Motherboard: Asus Maximus VII Ranger RAM: Corsair LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 2400 MHz (CMK16GX4M2A2400C14) GPU: ASUS ROG STRIX GTX1070 8GB GAMING (didn't overclock) SSD: Kingston HyperX Predator SSD M.2 240GB HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB PSU: Corsair RM650x
Second, my problem: Now don't think I didn't look for a solution already because I have. I'm even considering (more like already decided) buying a new PC. So I have noticed, by watching some YouTube videos, that my config does not gain as much FPS in games as it should. For example, The Witcher 3 - on YouTube, a guy with the same CPU and GPU as mine gets around 65-75 FPS while I get 40-45 max. No matter the settings (low or ultra), the FPS stays the same (plus or minus 5 fps). Also Fortnite runs at 60-ish FPS at medium to low settings, MINECRAFT stutters like hell and runs at 30 fps when I set the render distance above 10. I have monitored my GPU and CPU temps while playing those games (GPU gets to a max of 72C and CPU never passed 58C), and their frequency (both run at speeds described in their specs). The only problem I see is that during gameplay, my GPU utilization is around 50% while that guy on YouTube with his Witcher video stays at 99%. If there's anyone with any idea about what to do, I am most grateful to you.
