AoE3:DE is Maxing out GPU Everywhere in game

Hello All,

I seem to be getting a weird issue with the Game where regardless of what I am doing in the game my GPU is maxed out. This is including the main menu. I can set all my graphics to low and it still maxes out.

Some info:
I have a GTX 1080Ti
32GB Ram.

Allm the other specs seem fine, its just the GPU that maxes out, for a little bit of comparison in AoE2:DE on all max setting my GPU sits at about 30% utilization. So something really weird is going on for sure.

Thank you!

How many FPS are you getting when using a 1080ti in AOE3 DE? and to what resolution?

3440 x 1440 @ 100 FPS

I’ve tried running in smaller windows at lowers FPS and it still maxes out.

You can use rivatuner statistics server to limit the fps to 60, even so, my gpu uses its maximum capacity to barely reach 60fps :(, Even so I have the doubt how a 1080ti yields in AOE 3 DE to MAX Settings 4K

This game is pretty heavy on CPU/GPU usage, especially if you are playing on high settings, I have a Nvidia 1650 GPU and my framerate can drop to as low as 30-40 FPS during late game fights (on high settings 1080p res).

I can put it on low settings and it still maxes out, i think there is something wrong with the game. I don’t think this is a settings vs. equipment issue.

its not cpu heavy, this take 5% aprox. of my ryzen 3900x and callof duty warzone takes 33%

I have an i7-3820 and this game can use up to 30-40% of my CPU on low settings, either way it’s poorly optimized
