Reduce CPU and GUP usage.

DouglaskishDouglaskish Member Posts: 2 ■□□□□□□□□□
Hello there, buddies. This is my first post on this forum, and I am new to it. I'd want to get some gaming recommendations from you. My computer is a gaming computer. There are the most recent games I'm playing there. As a result, the game is consuming a lot of CPU and GPU resources at this stage. I'd like to know as little as possible about how to utilize it. Is there anyone who can offer some advice?

    The purpose of a gaming computer is to supply games with as much CPU and GPU as they need. It sounds like you are meeting this requirement. What else are you doing on the computer that requires a lot of CPU/GPU besides playing games?

    Thanks for replying. Maybe you are right. However, I also do video editing along while playing games. Today I searched Google and found some tricks. There are several methods I have already followed. For example, disabled the unnecessary programs running in the background, disabled all the power preserving modes, etc. But some article asks you to reinstall the graphics driver. But I don't understand if the graphics driver is responsible for this problem in any way. Please suggest me.

    You're not actually giving us anything useful to work with and you're forcing us to chip away at the problem, asking you for details bit by bit. 

     But I don't understand if the graphics driver is responsible for this problem in any way. Please suggest me. 
    The thing is: you haven't described a problem, you haven't even mentioned symptoms. 

    So can you please describe to us:

    1. Your setup: hardware, OS, etc
    2. Your software: which games are we talking about? which video editing software?
    3. Your use-case: which games are you playing, while also doing other stuff?
    4. Your problem and symptoms: what is the exact use-case and situation you're doing? What is going wrong?
    What is the actual problem?!

    This is your main problem. No one else on Earth can simultaneously edit videos while playing a game. If you have somehow mastered this ability, you should significantly upgrade your GPU (and possibly RAM and CPU) or have a separate computer each for editing and game playing.

    Taken absolutely literally, you're right. :smiley: I'd have a hard time playing Overwatch, while simultaneously editing video content. But that's because a person, at max, literally has two hands, one head. :smile:

    Putting that aside, as you point out, it's entirely possible to run two heavy graphical apps at the same time, but it depends on:
    • Either one very beefy CPU (8-12 threads) or a multi-socket board.
    • A swathe of RAM
    • More than one GPU, where one GPU is used by the game and the other by the video editing software (for rendering etc)
    But yeah... Limitations are perfectly normal in any given PC.

    I should have ended with: "...on the same computer."
