hi everyone,

so i have been rendering with chaotica 2 for a while now. checking CPU and GPU usage however seems to indicate that there is a lot of headroom. CPU is at about 15% and my GPU sits around 7 to 15%

is there anything i can do to make chaotica use more of my PC's power or is there another limiting factor?

right now in the settings the number of threads is set to "auto"

thanks for your help

How are you measuring GPU usage?

the screenshots appear to be blown up enormously by the forum. i can not even edit the post anymore as the edit button seems to be moved to not visiable space to the right...

I don't know how Windows measures GPU usage but I don't think it's very accurate.
We are using all the GPU power that is relevant and available to us.

i did another check on my GPU with GPUZ and it seems the windows task manager is not reporting correctly, or it is just culculating in a different way.
the GPU Load is at 100% in GPUZ while other values like memory controller load and bus interface load are sitting at a way lower percentage (30-40%)


thank you for your help
