Ovewrwatch is using 0,1% of GPU?

I have been having issues where the screen freezes for well over 2 seconds and Task manager is reporting 0,1% GPU usage.

And incase it affects any questions

I have the screen connected to my GPU
My CPU usage is about 35% while gaming
I have the latest drivers installed
Total GPU is under 5% according to Task manager

As for lockups, those are not a symptom of Overwatch’s software, so I’d recommend looking at temps and for any third-party apps that are crashing in the background. You can check those with a dxdiag (the error section at the end of the report).

DxDiag instructions (click to expand/collapse)

Reboot your PC, then only open Overwatch and play until you experience the issue. Exit the game, then follow these steps:

  1. Press Windows Key + R, then type DxDiag and press Enter.
  2. In the DxDiag window, click Save All Information.
  3. Name the file “dxdiag” and click Save.

If your DxDiag does not fit in one message, you can post it on Pastebin.com and provide the hash code (the numbers/letters after the .com) in your reply.
