Journeyman III

Radeon RX 6700 XT Nitro+ have 100% usage when game minimized

When I'm in the game everything is fine, but when I use Alt+Tab or Windows then suddenly the card reaches 100% usage and you can hear the coils. I have this with every game. My old 1060 did not have this problem.

Freesync and FPS limit options are set and enabled.


What could be the cause of such a spike in usage when the game is minimized?


My setup:
Ryzen 7 5800X
Radeon RX 6700 XT
RAM 2x16 3800Mhz CL17
B550 Msi Gaming Plus
Seasonic 750W Gold+
