There are a few ways to monitor GPU usage in Windows. Here are two of the most common methods:
Using the Task Manager
- Open the Task Manager by pressing Ctrl + Shift + Esc.
- Click on the Performance tab.
- Click on the GPU option in the left pane.
- This will show you the GPU usage for all of your GPUs.
Using a third-party tool
There are a number of third-party tools that you can use to monitor GPU usage. Some popular options include:
- MSI Afterburner: This is a popular overclocking tool that also includes a GPU usage monitor.
- GPU-Z: This is another popular GPU monitoring tool.
- HWMonitor: This is a general-purpose hardware monitoring tool that also includes a GPU usage monitor.
Once you have chosen a tool, you can use it to monitor GPU usage in real time. This can be helpful for troubleshooting problems or for tracking the performance of your games.
Here are some additional things to keep in mind when monitoring GPU usage:
- The GPU usage will vary depending on the task that you are performing. For example, if you are playing a game, the GPU usage will be higher than if you are just browsing the web.
- The GPU usage can also be affected by the settings of your game or application. For example, if you are playing a game at a high resolution, the GPU usage will be higher than if you are playing at a lower resolution.
- If you are experiencing problems with your GPU, monitoring the GPU usage can help you to identify the problem. For example, if the GPU usage is very high even when you are not doing anything, it could be a sign of a problem with your GPU.
