Journeyman III

Very low cpu and gpu usage, especially in Fortnite!

When ever I play Fortnite I get a decent 120-160 fps but with a lot of fps drops, especially in fights which is extremely annoying. I also only get around 20-40% CPU usage and 15-25% gpu usage which seems very weird to me. I have set Fortnites priority to high and done pretty much everything to boost my fps. I play on DX12 with all settings on low, because DX11 and performance mode are almost unplayable (assuming it's because I have an amd gpu). I'd be very thankful for any kind of help on how to fix this issue!

My specs: 

GPU: Amd Radeon RX 5500 XT

CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 3100 4-Core Processor 3600 mhz

Motherboard: Asus Prime b450m-k

2x8 GB of ram 2666 mhz
