Been benchmarking my GPU with Afterburner/Rivatuner to see if it is performing how it should or if there is something wrong with it. These are the results I am getting:


Heaven Benchmark (1080p) (Ultra/8x Settings):

Average = 150 fps
1% lows = 60 fps
0.1% lows = 18-22 fps


Warzone (1080p) (High Settings) (No DLSS/RT):

Average = 168 fps
1% lows = 60-73 fps
0.1% lows = 15-35 fps



I’m not sure if the 1% lows and 0.1% lows framerates are lower than normal? I seem to be getting very low values and even one digit values. Seems to happen at random times, during a scene change or loading screen and also when alt-tabbed. Not sure why these issues are happening?

Can anybody help me figure out if my gpu is working good or if there is something wrong? Is there any more tests I can do to validate if my gpu is working good or if it’s faulty?



UPDATE: I have included Afterburner graph while playing Warzone. The line in the picture is roughly where the game play starts. Can anyone see anything wrong with my gpu? Or it is performing good? Even though the 0.1% low and 1% low seems to be very low values.

Maybe Windows 10 is your problem, I remember reading somewhere that some games have issues with ADL on win10 vs 11. Or you could disable the e-cores to see if that helps

Or maybe those two apps have bad optimisation. Try your monster rig in other games or apps.

I doubt it’s the application. I will try another application but if the issue still happens what do you think it is? Is my gpu faulty or something else?

if you're just gaming and are worried about 0.1% lows, consider disabling the E-cores (temporarily anyways, until software support gets better/more mature), that may help

Hmmm not sure why the 0.1% low and 1% low keep dropping to a very low value or a one digit value. It seems to happen when I am in the application for a period of time, when a scene in the game changes or loading, and also when alt-tabbing. Not sure what is the cause and if my gpu is faulty or not.

Also how would I disable the E-cores for an Asus motherboard?

I thought windows 10 with Ader Lake E-cores is broken - no?

Do you see those 1%lows drop to low value during gameplay or when the game is loading? If you dont experience low framerates during gameplay but only when the scene changes or you move to a different area of the game and it has to load data, it is OK.

Happens to me as well with windows 11. There is small stuttering. Sadly, its the ecores, or better yet windoww scheduler sending tasks there, and then the cache down and upclocking based on whether ecores are up or not. Only happens at call of duty though

@localhost are you running your setup without a motherboard? :roll:

Some reviewers like Gamers Nexus and Hardware Unboxed also have some issues on Windows 10 Pro with Intel's Alder lake CPU's so Windows 11 is the best OS for now from what I have read and know.
