    is my laptop performing as it should

    hello all
    i'm new to this forum

    i have a question about my new laptop
    my cpu is working full out during 3d rendering and my GPU apperntly not, so my quetion is is my performance normal or not

    it has the following specs
    win 10 home
    i7 7700hq 2.8 - 3.8 ghz
    16 gb ram
    gtx 1060 with 6 GB
    250 samsung 960 evo nvme as boot and programs drive
    2 samsung sata ssd as document etc drives

    i have started to play around with the 3d capabilities of photoshop

    this is what happens when i render a simpel file ( only the five cubes are 3d renders)
    is my laptop performing as it should-orb-jpg

    resolution= full hd / 300 dpi

    my processor runs at ful speed (al 8 threads at 3.2 to 3.4 ghz)
    ram ussage around 8 to 9 gb (including music player en internet etc)
    my GPU MHZ = 1404 (without rendering 139 MHZ) and GPU memory speed = 3802 (without rendering 405 MHZ)
    screenshot not rendering :

    screenshot rendering:

    my GPU usage never exceeds the 2 procent and only 1,2 gb is used of de video card memory
    the render time = 24 min 46 sec


    these are my photoshop settings

    i expected (may wrongfully) dat my videocard would be harder at work than my cpu

    so my question is is my performance normal or not
    because i dont know

    thanks in advance

    Hi and welcome to the forum

    Photoshop 3D rendering is CPU intensive and does not use the GPU, so what you're seeing is normal
