GPU running at 99% all the time

I do not know if this should cause alarm but I do not understand why my GPU is constantly running at 99% all the time. I do not experience any problems such as overheating or lagging but it never goes down from 99%. My pc has an intel CPU of 4.5 GHz and an Nvidia GTX GeForce 660 TI 2 gigs graphics card. Is this something I should be concerned about? Should I get a better graphics card? If yes, which one is it?

Hello,

It depends on your usage. If you’ve enabled high graphical UI, such situation might appear.

First of all, make sure that you’re not running a heavy graphical interface; for example, animation, shade, high resolution or others. If so, then either decrease it or stop them.

There’s a notable side that your GPU is NVIDIA GeForce. It uses a technology that enables using the GPU as a CPU alongside the main CPU, enabling better performance and faster speed. This also enables the GPU to run at a higher rate. Your GPU’s speed is 980 MHz highest, so using this technology will consume about 99% of the GPU.

You can turn this off from the NVIDIA Control Panel.

Also, using the latest driver for your GPU is highly recommended, as it contains lots of enhancements. Download GeForce driver.

If possible, get GTX GeForce 990 or better. It is tremendously powerful and strong.

Hello,

Your GPU is constantly running at 99% means the graphics card is being fully utilized and is operating at its peak. Due to this may be cause your system fan motor and ball bearing on the heat sink fan of your GPU to wear out faster. I would suggest you to upgrade your graphics card to 780ti 3GB graphics card.
