GPU low utilization?

Why is my gpu utilization so low eventhough it should be higher? (btw yes i limited fps to 30)

DH does not decide how much your GPU gets used, thats for the GPU drivers to decide If its not being used more then you're probably thermally or CPU limited GPU utilization is weird

is this bottlenecking 3060

In minecraft with shaders, yes

But it depends on the game, you wont be CPU bottlenecked in everything Minecraft with shaders and DH is just very CPU intensive

ok thanks btw i realised i dont have newest nvidia drivers

DH does not use GPU to generate new areas... it doesn't work like that GPU utilization will scale how complex the scene is and how many FPS you request to render it at that's why limiting your framerate is important as you don't need 1000FPS in menu, and your GPU constantly at 100% usage... that's wasteful in essence you are complaining that DH+shaders combo is too optimised

yeah sorry about that i also think my cpu might actually be bottlenecking

you should not worry the DH generation tasks (that's actually using oyur CPU to 100%) are low priority, so vanilla and render porion should not be affected

yeah i think i worded the question wrong lol

generation will jsut use as much CPU as it is given. on worse CPUs it's gonna be simply slower in generating, but generation being slow does not affect FPS

Because you limited fps to 30
