Squad doesn't fully utilize GPU

Recommended Posts

Config: GTX 670 (2GB), FX8300, 8 GB RAM (1840 Mhz, 2 ranks, single channel), page file 7,5 GB HDD. Lowest settings.
So the game doesn't fully utilize GPU. It is like 50-60% overall, ~50% CPU usage. And I get 43 FPS average on most of the maps. But above 60 in sandy town CQC map.

And it is not a first time games behave like this. I suspect bad CPU usage because of FX's specialties: bad single core performance but 8 cores overall and high memory dependency. So games who handle many threads bad or just were not tested for FX at all (like Forza Horizon), lack performance.

Curiously enough, Insurgency Sandstorm has the same problems. I had terrible stutters in Squad but you fixed this (clap clap). And I was having terrible stutters there. And the same GPU usage issue. But I did not have these problems in Unreal Tournament 4.

Same problem. My GPU is not pushing enough, or I guess the CPU too?

cpu 50%

gpu 40-60%

Both temps do not reach 70degrees. So no throttling issues.

I get 100-125fps

 

i7 8700

16gb ram

gtx1080 @ 1080p

SSD

 

I'm kinda being annoyed about it because I just ordered a 1440p monitor. Dunno If it will stay above 100fps because the GPU/CPU is holding back.

 

No issues on other games.

Strange. I run a i7-8700 and Gtx1060 and hit 100% GPU utilisation for average 90 - 110FPS. I don't monitor CPU utilisation though. And I'm on a laptop with GPU temps up to 85deg. Interesting to see how you go on 1440p.
