GPU Usage 98% but VID Usage 0%

Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone!

Today, after two days of torture, I set eGPU. But the joy was short-lived...

 

However, in order:

I have Acer v3-571G with dGPU GT 730m. I deactived this card in Setup 1.30 that i can use Optimus with eGPU.

eGPU: GTX 960 4GB. (EXP GDC v 8.3)

 

 

But after the test, I was confused.

All due to the fact that the MSI Afterburner has shown that the GPU is used by 98%, but the GPU is not involved at all. 0% Always

I test in CS:GO, Watch Dogs, GTA 5.

 

In Watch Dogs eGPU better, but I think it can be more.

In CS:GO, my dGPU was much better... 

In GTA5 results are approximately equal, but eGPU a little bit better.

 

I expected more from this decision. It can is possible to solve this problem? Maybe I made a mistake during the installation?

 

Best regards.

Yes you are right, something is wrong. Your score is around 1.3k points in firestrike on your dgpu and with your egpu setup you should score around 9k points with external monitor(minus 10-25% if using the internal screen). Make sure:

- your egpu runs Gen2 enabled

- using the desktop nvidia driver

and finally try it with an external monitor.

Thanks for Answer!

How can I make sure that my egpu runs Gen2 enabled? 

In the Setup 1.30 I put it, but I do not know how to make sure that it works.

 

Yes, i Setup driver for GTX 960

 

May be i need do DSDT Override?

 

I try do this external monitor,  but evning.

 

UPD:

I change in Setup 1.30 to Gen 1, and it became worse.

FPS in CS:GO bacame ~50. (was ~105) Minimal setup.

 

With external monitor FPS grew by 10%.

Someone can help me?

If you connected your external monitor to the egpu and not to your laptop than your gtx960 is rendering so i have no idea whats going on.

      hello everyone, I have a MSI GT683R with a dying (pretty much dead actually) GTX560M in it.
       
      I am looking to upgrade it to a new GPU, I have found a AMD Firepro M6100. (I first wanted to upgrade to a GTX970M, but that's too expensive for now... and corona is also making things difficult) I have already ordered a second heatsink to modify because I didn't want to modify the original heatsink it came with.
       
      But, my question is. Does it even work in this system? I have heard of people getting it to work in the barebone variant of this system. But I am not sure if it would work in the 'fully loaded' variant.
       
      Also, my games are mostly RAM/CPU dependent and I am looking for a little extra power in this system. I have found a I7-2860qm and I want to upgrade to 32GB of RAM, is it possible on this system? the sticker says 'max. 16GB of RAM' But I have feeling it says that due to the limitation of the cpu that's already on this system (I7-2630QM, 16GB RAM max.)

      Hi,
      I want to show you my new project.
      I bought my laptop about 5 years ago.  It was never speed deamon, but for every day use, it was enough to me.
       
      Its specification:
      Intel i7-4700MQ
      Nvidia GeForce GT745M
      16GB RAM
      512 SSD Adata SU800

       
      Yesterday I bought Witcher 3. Of course on 1080p it's impossible to play, because of about 10fps
       
      So I make a decision to buy external grahpic card.
      I choose GTX970 and now I am looking for occasion to buy it.
       
      I've already bought EXP GDC v8.4d mPCI-E. It is used and cost about 30$.

       
      I will use ATX PSU to supply graphic card, because I have old desktop PSU at home.
       
      My plan:
      1) unlock bios
      2) buy GTX 970
      3) enjoy Witcher 3!
       
      BTW I try to cool down my laptop, so I replaced thermal paste to Kryonout Thermal Grizzly and make some tests. Temperatures and fps are on screenshots.
       
      1) laptop on table, playing GTA V 1080p

       
      - first minute (GPU core 1045MHz)

       
      -after some time, because of high temperature and GPU throlttling (GPU core drop down even to 400MHz)

       
      2) with thermalpad Glacier NC400 SilentiumPC

      - 30 minute and longer (GPU core drop to about 900MHz)
       
      3) without down case of laptop (like on picture with thermal paste) on thermalpad.
      Here laptop never drops down MHz and max temp are about 72 Celsius degrees.

       
       
      Bacause of that I bought second down case for my laptop and I will cut there additional holes.
       
      Greetings!
       
      I will describe next step when I get all stuff I need!

      Hello everyone
      I created a case for egpu using 2.5mm acrylic sheets. The first time I created a case to support a GPU + ATX psu
      Now I created another one for the GPU with an external Xbox 360 203w psu.
      the finish was not good but for my use it is already good.
       
      *both cases album
      *Construction of the second case 
      *adapting xbox psu to 8pin power (taken from 24pin)
       
      all made by hand with the tools I had.

      from Brazil.

      Hello!
       
      I have recently acquired my Dell Inspiron 15 7000, and I am interested in building an egpu setup for it. It has a USB-C port. Any recommendations/guides out there?
       
      thanks.

      Hi,
       
      I am having some heat issues with the GTX 680m I installed on my Alienware M17x R2 (yes, its old).  Having installed and ran HWiNFO64, it appears that the maximum rpm of the GPU fan is 2560rpm, even when the GPU reached a maximum of 93° Celsius.  The rpm seems low, but what is the maximum rpm of the fan, does anyone have any ideas?
       
      Thanks
