When pressing Alt-O it shows the wrong cpu activity for my 5800X3D CPU.

Hello,

 

When i start up a game the CPU activity shows very low CPU usage 2% for my ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU.

 

Maybe the 5800X3D isnt yet supported by this driver software.

 

Best Regards

Erwin.

Hello Erwin06,



Thank you for posting on the Intel communities. I am sorry to hear that your processor is not working properly, I will be happy to help you.  


To have a better understanding of the situation, please answer the following questions: 


  • Is the issue related to an Intel® product?


If the issue is just related to the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D Processor and you do not have any Intel® product, we recommend contacting AMD for assistance.

Hello,

 

My processor is working properly, but the cpu usage isnt showing correctly in your driver software.

 

Laste week i bought a intel ARC A770 and installed the latest driver .4255 and saw this problem.

 

I installed msi afterburner and this software shows the correct cpu usage.

 

Regards 

Erwin

I think i know why the game crashed, after i installed the Intel driver the monitor Hz in windows was set to 60Hz and the ingame Hz is 239.76Hz after setting the Hz from 60Hz to 239.76Hz the game runs smooth again.

Hello,

 

The problem with the low cpu usage is a problem i cant solve.

 

2nd problem.

 

Yesterday 9-4-2023 i did a clean install windows 11 22H2 again to test The vga card is not supported by uefi driver.

 

I installed windows 11 + updates then the chipset driver, Realtek lan driver, after every install i reboot the pc.

After i installed the Realtek lan driver and rebooted the pc, i got my 1st The vga card is not supported by uefi driver.

When this happens CSM gets enables in the Bios, i Disabled CSM again because CSM has to be disabled when using Resizable bar.

Later i got my 2nd The vga card is not supported by uefi driver.

After the 2nd time it didnt happen again.

The latest vbios is installed v20.1053.0

It's possible that the game you're playing isn't utilizing all of your CPU cores, which could result in low CPU usage. Additionally, it's unlikely that your CPU model is not supported by the driver software, as the Ryzen 7 5800X is a widely-used CPU and is generally compatible with most driver software.

There are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the low CPU usage:

  1. Check the game's system requirements: Make sure that your CPU meets the minimum system requirements for the game you're playing. If your CPU doesn't meet the requirements, the game may not be able to fully utilize your CPU's capabilities.

  2. Check your CPU settings: Make sure that your CPU is running at the correct speed and that all cores are enabled. You can check these settings in your computer's BIOS.

  3. Check for background processes: Make sure that there aren't any other programs running in the background that could be using up CPU resources. Close any unnecessary programs or processes to free up CPU resources for your game.

  4. Update your drivers: Make sure that your CPU and graphics card drivers are up to date. Outdated drivers can cause performance issues and may not properly utilize your CPU's capabilities.

If none of these solutions work, you may want to try contacting the game's technical support team for further assistance.

If the low CPU usage is coming from the game you're playing isn't utilizing all of your CPU cores, how come that MSI Afterburner is showing the correct CPU usage when playing Battlefield 2042.

 

5 months ago i reported low CPU usage with Battlefield V with the Nvidia driver and geforce experience, when pressing Alt-R it showed similar CPU usage as with the Intel driver ARC control, in a later version from geforce experience it was fixed. A  different prossecor was installed a AMD Ryzen 5 5600X.

On the Asus forum some one reported low CPU usage he has low CPU usage with ASUS GPU Tweak III, when he reported this i also checked this problem and i also saw low CPU usage with the intel driver with the A770 and with Asus GPU Tweak III with a Asus GTX 1070 in Battlefield 2042, MSI aferburner shows the correct CPU usage.
