My GPU GTX 980 Ti SC+ gets only 55% GPU usage at default 1080p preset running Windows 10 1909 and CPU i7-4790K@4.4GHz because CPU (very) high bound is PROBLEM.
-> Result average ~112fps

But can you remove CPU bound for GPU Physx test?

Thank. I get ~536 fps :) but 178 sps (178 fps for physics only).

I got the ghost glitch at 1080p preset for impact performance but no any glitch at user's settings.


Please should eliminate ghost for presets.

What is the ghost glitch exactly?

I will remove the ghost effect in all benchmark presets.

I decided to no remove the ghost effect. It's part of FluidMark since the beginning: it's an additional pixel shader effect and it does not change the score.  This effect is enabled in Preset:1080 and Preset:720 and you can enable it manually with "More graphics load" checkbox.
