ESO Sitting at 99% GPU Usage - 980 Ti

Hey all!

So.. I currently run an i7 3820 OC'd to 4.6Ghz w/ 980 Ti Hybrid.

For whatever reason - this game appears to be running at 99% Usage on my GPU. CPU Sits at an average of maybe 25% - which I expect.. being how this game operates.

For some light - I currently run a SweetFX Shader and run the game in DSR 4K on my 165Hz 1440p Display. I've also used the tweaks found in the UserSettings.txt - that I found on Reddit.

Does anyone else have this issue?

    i have the same card as you ;D, 4k dsr resoultions at @ 165hz - its no woudner the card is utilizing 99%, your pushing the card to its very max, what smoothness etc are u using in nvidia options, (standard 33%) ?

    Other thing to note is, when running 4k dsr and using SweetFx (which is hungry hog in-itself), you dont need any anti-alaising or anisotropic filters, which would free up some vram.

    from the small amount of info the youve given, i think the card is likely doing the best it can do for the power.. and what your throwing at it ';D

    High usage means it's actually taking advantage of the graphics card, I wouldn't call it a bad thing unless you have problems overheating. I have the opposite problem, this game tends to use ~50% of my gtx 960, max, whereas any other game I run uses 90+. It's at the point where the fans don't even kick on a majority of the time lol.
