Under the Sensors tab, look at GPU Load. Mine hovers between 98% and 100% on average while folding.

I generally look at two sensors. GPULoad and PerfCapReason

You do have to consider the size of the protein being folded, however. For large proteins, performance is limited by the number of shaders. For small proteins, GPULoad will be limited by the Memory Controller Load and possibly by the Bus Interface Load. You can't make use of a large number of shaders if you can't get the data fast enough to keep them all busy.

GPU load is the one to look at.
