    GPU is suppose to be utilized 100% during gaming.. lol
    If its not 100% you have a problem.

    Some games might not be graphic heavy thats why you might see it being utilized less, but ideally 100% means your GPU is doing its job :)

    From experience it depends what resolution you're playing and depending on the scenario on the game.(Some games straight up don't use all the gpu %)Usually Higher resolution pushes the gpu more but not always at 100% unless it's a benchmark.Also it's bdo.I usually get around 50-80 gpu usage while grinding at 1440p and 90+ at grana just cutting logs.The only time I had a constant 100% gpu usage in any game is when I'm using some benchmark or when the fps is hitting 144fps constantly.Most of the time gpu usage is around 50-100% in every game I play.

    XD No it doesn't matter what res you still have all cores on the gpu in use for BDO.
    I run in 2k Downsampled to 1080p (66Hz) as my monitor is old.
    You could play around with low power and gfx options but then why bother if you want it to look pretty?

    I can run a benchmark 99-100% gpu usage.Not bdo tho.The game is a mess.The connection,cities,ppl and skill effects all cause errattic gpu usage behaviour.I run at 1440p 144hz with 1080ti.The only way I could get 100%gpu usage is to play 4k because of how ridiculously demanding is on the gpu.

    In your case it could be many factors on why you have 100% gpu usage.Probably the limited hz with high settings.(you have constant 100% right? im understanding you right?)
