I currently have a Core i7 12700KF processor and a RTX 3060 GPU and I am using Win11 with the latest updates and latest drivers. I have done an experiment where disabling the E Cores on the processor kept the GPU usage at 99/98% in FurMark, but if I used all cores (P and E Cores) the GPU usage varied a lot, between 88 and 100%. My question is, is it a problem with my processor or is it a FurMark problem?


The efficiency cores are a new technology that caught everyone by surprise.
At least Furmark does not crash like those dopey programmed games  :P
