My GPU usage in Rotterdam is between 75% to 90% on an average with an i9-9900k @ 3.6ghz and RTX 2080 with 16GB 2133mhz DDR4 RAM. Is this normal because my CPU isnt maxed out nor is my GPU. I am running in DX12.

    You're memory is the bottleneck. 2080 and 2080ti needs high bandwidth on the memory, so to get that you'll need higher frequency memory. 9900k loves 4000+ memory :)
    Overclocked memory, you can get sub 40ns memorylatency and 60k GB/s read.

    Buy 3200c14 and set it to 4000mhz c17-17-17-37 in bios. TRFC 400. 1.42-1.45V in bios. VCCIN and VCCSA @ 1.2-1-25v.

    Good luck :smile:

    the ram is definalty holding you back  etleast 3200 mhz ( min )   

    dont over clock your ram to 4000 xcc17 with out stress testing it first with mem test and hci mem test . 

    try for 3200 min and shoot for 3600 - 4133 on the ram 

    oc cpu to  4.7 ghz (min )    not under clocked 


    my 8700k @ 5.1 ghz and ram @ 4000 cl-17   my 1080ti is always 100 % load  fps never drops below 110 at any time on even under ground with 90 + % cpu usage @ 5.1 ghz

    What settings and what frame rate cap are you using?

    BFV doesn't require full GPU or CPU usage to pump out 120 fps on my rig.

    Which settings do you play at and what resolution? Are you in DX 12?

    The more important question is what are your settings? Resolution, quality, frame rate limit.

    Your CPU and GPU aren't going to be at 100% full tilt unless it's necessary. If you're running 1080p at at locked 120 your GPU may not necessarily need more utilization.

    Your body need not utilize all the muscles needed to lift a box of books off the ground when you're just bending over to pick up the keys or phone you dropped.

    If you want to see more GPU utilization, up the resolution scale.

    So i've heard that you want to get close to 100% even if that means scaling up res. On max settings to get 100 i have to put resolution to 150. Still doesnt make sense to me.

    You don't need any more utilization than is necessary to hit your target frame rate. There's nothing wrong with your rig If your GPU is able to maintain your desired performance at less than 100% util.

    You don't need to worry about sub-100% util unless your CPU is at 100% util AND you're not hitting the perf level you would like.

    I am running ultra settings at 1440p. RTX is off. FPS limit is 141 but my frames are always below 141

    You'll see more utilization and a more stable frame rate by switching to DX11 and turning FFR on. There will be slightly more latency since what you're seeing is three frames behind real time but it's not felt too much in play, especially at higher frame rates.

    Unless things have changed, FFR is forced off when using DX12 renderer.

    Find this interesting, reason being. I was trolled by all stating no lessor then 3600mhz, now a full reversal. On with the point. If not using nvme drive I'd get one. Made a huge difference in My setup. There are gains between ssd and nvme drive, most noticeably is pfetch. Fps on a I 7 7700k completely over clocked 170 to over 200 fps. sli 1080ti 2 samsung 970 nvme Liquid cooled running 1903
