#StackBounty: #gpu Computer lags with GPU0 at 100% and GPU1 at 0%

Bounty: 50

I have a laptop that often lags/stutters when doing "normal" tasks that are not intensive:

  • Firefox with Youtube
  • Microsoft Teams make my computer lag with the Desktop App and even when using the App interface with Google Chrome)

Here is my GPU usagemy GPU usage

We can see that 3 apps take roughly 80% of one GPU ("System", Firefox, and "Windows Driver Foundation – Host process…" each take between 20% and 30% of my GPU 0)

Another weird thing is that my second GPU is not used, it stays at 0% even when launching games.

Here are my specs:

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-8265U @1.6GHz (4 cores / 8 virtual processors?)
  • RAM: 24 GB
  • GPU 0: Intel UHD Graphics 620
  • GPU 1: NVIDIA GeForce MX250

What can I do to further troubleshoot my issue? How can I use both my GPU?
