The GPU load when using the SDR console is too high!? #sdrconsolev3


dl4ycc@...
 

Hello Simon, I have a very high GPU load of 26%.
The CPU load is only 0.3%!
That's definitely not okay.

My notebook config: 12th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-12900H 2.50 GHz, graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti laptop GPU
 
What could be the reason?

Web browsers. The GPU load is total for your computer, not just SDR Console.

Show me the task manager, this will show you which programs are actually using GPU.

Interesting. If I let the SDR console run in the background, the GPU load immediately drops to 3%. (in the task manager) !

You must attach the images, all your images are too small to read.

So,

From the first screenshot Console uses 43% of 26% or ~11% of total capacity. Look at your services etc., I expect these must be eating GPU.

Thank you for the info. I will continue to monitor the GPU load and hope that the GPU load will eventually go down.

It's very probably browser services.

He might also check if the GPU is heavily throttling in a notebook configuration.

Well,

Console is using 11% of the GPU's capacity which is not bad. SDR Console uses Direct-X which is a hardware-accelerated graphics system unlike GDI/GDI+ used by SDR Console v2, SDR# and SDR Uno. Someone has to pay for the higher-quality graphics, and it's the GPU. SDR++ uses OpenGL I believe, also hardware accelerated.

Using Direct-X and WASAPI were two key design decisions for SDR Console v3.
