100% GPU Usage - Main Menu

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

 

This is something I only noticed yesterday evening after going afk whilst the game sat in the main menu.

Came back to my PC sounding like it was taking off...turns out my GPU was at 100% usage (MSi Afterburner),

 

Going into a server, the GPU usage drops down to more 'normal' levels, but in the main menu and server browser screens, it instantly jumps up to and sits at a constant 100% usage.

 

Tonight I shall check again, clean and re-install drivers etc. and report back. 

PC Spec:

I5-6500

16gb DDR4 RAM

MSI R390 8GB GPU

 

Has anyone else noticed this issue?

Do you have vsync off?

 

In the menu, I think FPS is limited to 240, but I'm not sure why it would cause 100% usage. I remember when it wasn't limited though and people were getting 2000 fps in the menu. :D

Ah prob not what I am thinking, alot of friends with GTX 970 4GB set vram to 4GB and had issues, as the last 500mb is not full speed vram.

 

Try turning CPU thermal monitoring in BIOs off if it is on.

 

What motherboard are you using?

Odd, google searches suggest 100% usage is normal...wtf is that about

 

In a properly optimized game your GPU usage would always be at 100% and CPU usage would be close to that. 100% GPU usage in game is nothing to worry about. In Squad it just means you're GPU limited, try turning your resolution to 800x600 and see if it drops, you should be CPU limited at such low res.
