NVidia card is only folding at ~40%

Hi everyone, I'm a new folder so bare with me in case I've overlooked this somewhere ...

Looking at the task manager of my Windows 10 Device I can see that the GPU is only used by ~40%.

Can you tell me if this is really the case or just that Windows can't show the folding status correctly ?

Most of the time I can see some Copy action in the GPU, but troughout one folding action the GPU never reaches 100% not even when the CPU is idling.

Any suggestions ?

I just love task manager … It "fibs" … use the little drop down triangle and check the other options … one will probably show 100 (or very enar) usage - possible compute 1

If you are interested running one of the monitoring tools (everyone has their favourite - I use HWMonitor) which not only give much better indications of utilisation in much greater detail but also allow monitoring of temperatures and more.
