Strange FPS problem

Hello guys,

i want to discuss with you on a strange problem that i have in all of my games(but since bf1 is my main game i chose to post here)

im experiencing low fps in the game(around 70 and sometimes even below 60) with my beast:

ryzen 1700
16gb one slot 2666mhz
1080gtx 
antec 550W psu 

and i'll save you some thoughts:

1. the game runs on 1080p ultra settings
2. no frame rate limiters etc
3. the control panel settings are all on prefer maximum performance
4. the card is on PCIe x16 
5. all drivers are up-to-date
6. benchmarks are within the normal range for my system 

so i narrowed the problem to gpu usage - my gpu has only about 60% usage on average on this settings....
i have no idea how to increase the usage(besides the resolution scale, which i prefer not to change).
i saw some gaming performance with the 8700K on 1080p ultra, and the card gave almost 100% usage so the user got 150FPS on average...

any idea how to solve this strange usage problem? i know that my gpu doesn't event blink in 1080p but when it uses only 60% of its power its kinda missing the point...

    Add another stick of ram, or sell that one and buy 2x 8gb. This game does not run well at all in single channel mode. It's most likely what's causing your usage issue. They should have made dual channel ram a part of the recommended specs for sure/

    I think there may be an issue with the servers, or something else like that happened, as a lot of players who never complain have been having issues since the server outage yesterday.

    Network/server issues doesn't affect in-game FPS.

    is it possible also that my clock speed of that stick are too low?

    Memory clocks are important for 1st gen ryzen's, but 2666 mhz should be fine. Dual channel is a must though. It's pretty well documented with this game.
