Closed 7870 GPU Usage is jumping. Why? Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs Battlefield Graphics Last response: January 5, 2013 1:33 PM in Graphics & Displays Share shood247 January 5, 2013 6:08:17 AM So when I was playing Battlefield 3 I noticed that the Gpu usage was jumping around quite a bit. Does anyone know the cause for this and is it normal. The flat line at the end is because I shut Battlefield down. Image link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/53710739@N04/8348079345/in...

Just going in and out of more demanding areas (such as an explosion or shooting). Ah, That makes sense. I only thought this might be of concern because my old card was always hovering around 90% and never dropped as low as 60%. Score 0 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
